The app will let you create custom playlists of video content from MLB, NHL, NBA, PGA, and other leagues, and after an initial setup will give you a “highly personalized” feed of content. Among the content is news and analysis from the Yahoo editorial team, and you’ll also find video highlights and live streams including the MLB Free Game of the Day.

At launch, you can watch the most recent news and highlights from MLB, NHL, NBA, PGA and some of the top soccer leagues from around the world. 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.

The Yahoo Sports app for Apple TV 4 is available on the App Store now. And Yahoo says it’s planning on releasing additional “features for the Yahoo Sports app on Apple TV 4 in the coming months.”
