Apple's TV App Adds Direct Access to Live News Channels

The addition of the live news section on Apple's TV app arrives shortly after the company launched a live sports tab. It partnered with NBC Sports for the coverage but there are videos, articles and infographics available from a selection of sources. We've asked if and how the portal will work outside of the USA - since NBC only holds the rights to coverage in that country - and we're also asking which other partners are involved. Apple has partnered with NBC, the network that is covering the Pyeongchang, South Korea Olympics, to bring real-time news updates about the event through its Apple News app. Try it out and let me know how you like it. For live video, however, you're automatically directed to download the NBC Sports app, which offers additional pre-recorded videos for free but requires a TV subscription to view live videos. Clips from events can be watched directly within the Apple News app. 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.

There will also be a medal tracker and morning roundups for those in timezones that are far from where the games are taking place.

TechCrunch learned Thursday that Apple has struck a deal with NBC Olympics, so it could bring live updates about the 2018 Winter Olympics to users of its iOS-powered products.

What are you most excited to see at this year's Winter Olympics?
