After adding support for video content from Bravo, E!, Syfy and USA channels ten days ago, tvOS’s universal search feature was refreshed earlier today with official support for nine additional channels. The full up-to-date list of universal search providers can be found in Apple’s support document.
After adding support for finding CBS television shows last month, owners of the fourth-generation Apple TV can now use tvOS’s universal search feature to find video content from NBC, like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” using Siri or Dictation.
T-Mobile is expanding support for its data-free content streaming technology, dubbed Binge On, with the addition of Spotify, NBC, Tidal, Google Play Music, Radio Disney and other services, the wireless carrier said Tuesday.
Binge On permits T-Mobile subscribers to stream video and audio over its cellular data network, without eating into their monthly data allowances.
Ahead of next week’s launch of a much-improved fourth-generation Apple TV, a trio of new content sources were added to the existing third-generation set-top boxes on Tuesday: CBS All Access, NBC and Made To Measure (M2M).
As first reported by MacRumors, the inclusion of CBS All Access marks the first time the network has provided a channel on the Apple TV aside from the dedicated NBC Sports and NBC News channels.
The Wall Street Journal’s story alleging Apple is gearing up to launch a web-based television service this fall with 25 cherry-picked channels for $30-$40 per month contains an important caveat: for now, Apple’s talks with programmers about a TV bundle don’t include NBCUniversal.
Be that as it may, a reliable blogger has provided credible evidence that NBC is planning to add its own channel to Apple’s recently discounted $69 set-top box.
