The feature is similar to the Sports section launched previous year in which you can sift through a selection of news outlets to watch such as CNN, CNBC, Fox News, Cheddar, and Bloomberg.

MacRumors reports that aside from the usual news updates, the new section also features a planner that people can use to figure the specific schedule of events.

Once you have those apps on your device, you can ask Siri to "Watch Bloomberg" so that you don't even have to open up the TV app in the first place.

On iOS devices and Apple TVs, U.S. networks CBS News, CNN, Fox News, Cheddar, CNBC, and Bloomberg now appear under a new News section of the TV app's Watch Now tab, currently following a dedicated collection of PyeongChang 2018 banners. The live feeds are immediately recognizable thanks to a "Live" flag on the video thumbnail.

To get the feature to work, you'll need the accompanying apps for the news providers listed.

It is not clear why Apple has chosen to put its Olympics coverage in "For You". Slowly but surely, the Apple TV app is becoming a comprehensive hub for live TV.

Apple itself has been making several moves to beef up its own content plays, aiming to have more exclusivity and ownership of what it provides on its own video and music services as a way of differentiating them and potentially making them more attractive for consumers to pay to use.
