Apple TV app gains promised News section first shown in September

Apple TV app gains promised News section first shown in September

As reported by 9to5Mac, the new app will allow users to quickly access live news content from a number of different networks - CBS, CNN, Fox, Cheddar, CNBC and Bloomberg, specifically. The TV app uses your Single Sign-On login credentials to log you into each of those apps, making it seamless to set up multiple different news sources.

Apple's TV app got an upgrade this week as a dedicated section for live news has been added to the front page. The news content is accessible via the TV app using an iOS device and Apple TV. Unless you've already downloaded a given network's app, tapping on any of the channels requires you to download the app, after which live news video will quickly begin playing. For example, you can say "Play Bloomberg" or "Watch CNN".

It is not clear why Apple has chosen to put its Olympics coverage in "For You". The News feature now only includes US-based outlets, though this may change down the line.

The TV app aggregates each of the media outlet's broadcasts in one place, which makes it easier to watch them without having to open each individual app.
