You Can Now Stream Live News from Apple's TV App


The TV app News section now offers live news feeds from Bloomberg, CBS News, Fox News, CNBC, CNN, and Cheddar.

Apple today has further expanded its TV application on iOS and tvOS. The deal enables Apple to add a new section in Apple News that's dedicated to the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympics.

To get the feature to work, you'll need the accompanying apps for the news providers listed. However, people must install each news organization's individual apps on their device before they can watch the broadcasts via the Apple TV app. The TV app has been updated with this News section, and in it users on both iOS and tvOS can easily browse and launch live news streams from many different providers. In the United States, the additions provide easy access to both text and video news, though only a handful of partners are now featured. Also, it integrates the Siri ability to start playing a specific network if you like.
