Specific programming available on the app include Comedy Bang Bang!, Maron, The Spoils Before Dying, and Food Party, among other titles.

“Fans know IFC for our ‘Always on, Slightly off’ style of comedy, and our new app ensures that our originals are ‘always on’ and available wherever and whenever viewers want to watch them,” said Jennifer Caserta, IFC’s president, in a statement. “The app delivers a great viewing experience and this launch on Apple TV is perfectly timed for the return of Documentary Now! and premiere of our newest original, Stan Against Evil, later this year.”
