Apple News Launches Coverage of 2018 Winter Olympics

Apple today has further expanded its TV application on iOS and tvOS.

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.

Windsor's unemployment rate sees significant drop
In Ontario, which increased its minimum wage in January, employment fell during the month, due to losses in part-time work. The jobs survey shows Victoria remains among the lowest in the country with only Quebec City at a lower rate.

If you're an avid Apple TV user, the tech company has some good news for you.

People can use the TV app to watch live news from outlets like CBS News, CNN, Fox News, CNBC, and Bloomberg on iPhones, iPads and the Apple TV streaming device. Apple will prompt you to install the apps and will use your Single Sign-On login credentials to set up each app for all your chosen new sources for you seamlessly.

Penguins come back to spoil Fleury's long-awaited return
Fleury made 24 saves in that game, and he remains one of the NHL's top goalies with a 15-4-2 mark and 1.84 goals-against average. The Pittsburgh Penguins have broken out of their season long slumber and are looking like the defending Stanley Cup champions.

It's important to note that Apple's TV app is aggregating this content from the agencies' own apps, though, so you'll need to have those installed in order to access their news content within Apple's own entertainment app. For instance, simply say "Play CNN" to immediately jump to the live feed in the CNN application. The feature launched with Sports integration back in November, but only now are we adding support for News.

On the main "Watch Now" tab, if you scroll past your "Up Next" queue and the top recommendations, there's a new "News" section.

TRACKING: Winter Storm Thursday Night through Friday
A second wave of snow will push through late Friday into early Saturday with southern Iowa being the main target of this wave. More than 6 inches is forecasted to fall overnight Thursday, leading into the Friday morning commute.

If you're running the most recent versions of iOS and tvOS, the feature should now be live.
