Yahoo on Friday launched its Sports app for the fourth-generation Apple TV, bringing its highly popular sports property to the big screen, for free. A bonus for those who’ve cut the cord, Yahoo Sports for Apple TV brings a highly personalized experience to viewers, including news, highlights and live games.
The app also lets you create a custom playlist of your favorite teams and provides direct access to editorial content from Yahoo Sports. After choosing your favorite teams at launch, the app will instantly create a personalized playlist of top highlights from your teams and the top stories across sports.
“You’ll also get the great coverage and in-depth analysis you’ve come to expect from the Yahoo Sports editorial team such as The Vertical with Woj, Instant Reactions, Sports Dash and Power Rankings,” said Yahoo.
In addition to highlights, news and analysis, Yahoo Sports for Apple TV delivers live-streamed content to your big screen TV, including the MLB Free Game of the Day.
At launch, Apple TV owners can watch the most recent news and highlights from MLB, NHL, NBA, PGA and some of the top soccer leagues from around the world. Additional features for the Apple TV app are due in the coming months, said Yahoo. To download the app, search for ‘Yahoo Sports’ in the tvOS App Store.
