Apple News Launches Coverage of 2018 Winter Olympics

09 February 2018

Apple's TV app, available across its iOS and tvOS devices, has added live news to its slate of available TV and streaming video apps. The News feature now only includes US-based outlets, though this may change down the line.

Apple has introduced a new section in Apple News that offers coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Johnson stands against spending bill
President Trump has signed a new spending bill into effect that ended the brief government shutdown on Friday morning. The vote followed the Senate's clearing of the legislation from a vote of 71 to 28.

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 prompts you to install each news network's app from the App Store if it isn't already installed and then automatically signs you in to each app using Single Sign-On.

Both the News and the Sports sections were showcased alongside the unveiling of the Apple TV 4K and the two sections work to support each other. It appears to be live for users running the latest iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5 releases. Sports has not really been a huge focus in that context, although Apple did add a dedicated Sports tab to Apple TV in September, perhaps laying the groundwork for this and many more activities down the line.
