Apple TV 4K Stories November 24

Update: Spectrum subscribers now report that the app is slated to launch on December 13th.

With tvOS 12, Apple announced a new feature it calls “Zero Sign On,” which simplifies the login process for TV streaming applications. Apple originally said that Charter Spectrum would be the first TV provider to support the feature, with a new Charter Spectrum app for Apple TV and Zero Sign On launching before the end of the year.

As we approach the end of 2018, we still don’t have any confirmation about when these features will launch, but there’s evidence to suggest it will be sooner rather than later.

Bring on the 4K HDR movie binge watching. The new Apple TV 4K is out today and we’ve got our hands on Apple’s new streaming box.
