The latest Apple TV update brings a dedicated News section

Share

People can use the TV app to watch live news from outlets like CBS News, CNN, Fox News, CNBC, and Bloomberg on iPhones, iPads and the Apple TV streaming device. 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. Afterward, live news feeds should appear in a dedicated News section in the TV app on both tvOS and iOS. The company is adding a new section in Apple News that will be dedicated to the Winder Olympics in Pyeongchang.

To get the feature to work, you'll need the accompanying apps for the news providers listed. Once you've installed the app for each network you're interested in, you'll be able to quickly navigate between them using Siri's voice control functionality.
