Apple Live News Section Now Available in TV App

Apple partners with NBC on a new Winter Olympics section in Apple News

First teased during Apple's keynote last September, the News section on the Apple TV app offers quick access to a variety of live stations, including CBS News, CNN, Fox News, Cheddar, CNBC and Bloomberg. The iPhone-maker expanded its TV application on iOS and tvOS. Not long after adding a dedicated sports section to the Apple TV app, the company will now be rolling out a "News" section as well.

Once you have those apps on your device, you can ask Siri to "Watch Bloomberg" so that you don't even have to open up the TV app in the first place.

If you don't have the corresponding app on your iOS device or Apple TV, you'll be redirected to download it from the App Store.

Live streams and fully replays of specific events will link directly to the NBC Sports app, Apple says, while clips from events can be watched within the Apple News app. In the United States, the additions provide easy access to both text and video news, though only a handful of partners are now featured.

This new section is in partnership with NBC, however, the app will show coverage from a whole range of sources, as well as content created by the Apple News editor. Try it out and let me know how you like it.
