tvOS 10 Apple TV HomeKit

Apple TV gained a new feature earlier this year called Live tune-in that lets you tell Siri what channel you want to watch and jump right in to the current stream. The feature is somewhat difficult to discover, but Apple maintains a list of “live channels” that work with Live tune-in on the fourth-gen Apple TV.

ABC News is the latest addition to Apple’s growing list, which means you can now say “Siri, watch ABC News live” and your Apple TV will open the live broadcast for you. The ABC News provides (multiple) free live news streams without requiring credentials for access. Other Live tune-in channels include CBS, CBS News, CNN Go, Cooking Channel, Disney Channel, Disney Jr, Disney X D, DIY, ESPN, Food Network, FXNOW, HGTV, and Travel Channel.
