Apple's updated tvOS brings new Siri capabilities and single sign-on to Apple TV

Apple at WWDC 2016 announced that it will bring new features to its Apple TV this fall with the updated tvOS like deeper integration of Siri, new single sign-in option and more.

With expanded Siri capabilities, Apple TV users can search across more apps such as YouTube, top-search or even tuning right into more live channels.The  new single sign-in option, Apple TV users can authenticate all the video channels from their pay-TV providers by simply signing in once to watch  all of their network TV apps.

Apple's Eddy Cue, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services said that Siri on Apple TV has changed the way users interact with TV. Cue stressed that future of TV is apps and revealed that Apple TV has over 6,000 apps and 1,300 video channels.

The new single sign-on for Pay-TV apps will be available to U.S customers on both Apple TV and iOS. Starting this fall users have to only sign in once on Apple TV to access their favorite video channels that are part of pay-TV subscription, so you don't have to sign-in individually for each app.
