Apple TV App Enables News Section as Promised

Apple TV App Enables News Section as Promised

The live programming additions come almost a year and a half after Apple originally launched its TV app, which aggregates TV and movies from multiple apps into one unified search platform available on Apple TV, iPhone and iPad. You'll even be able to control the content with your voice using Siri on the Apple TV by saying things like "Play Fox News". Be sure to grab those updates before frantically navigating around your TV app.

If you tap on one of those icons, it launches the live stream in each of those apps. For users who don't have a particular news app installed, the TV app prompts for it to be installed from the App Store.

Apple's TV app now supports live news - a feature announced in September when company CEO Tim Cook introduced the new Apple TV 4K.

There will also be a medal tracker and morning roundups for those in timezones that are far from where the games are taking place. This obviously includes the USA which has a 14-hour time difference with Korea. We've asked if this will be available outside of the U.S. - since NBC only holds the rights to coverage in that country - and we're also asking which other partners are involved. Apple's partnership with NBC only benefits US consumers, so it's very likely that Apple also struck deals with other partners in other countries.
