Looking for live TV on the Apple TV? Receiving live television broadcasts depends entirely on individual apps. Some networks provide access to live streaming in their tvOS apps, and others do not. In most cases, live streaming requires signing in with cable / satellite / FiOS credentials.
Some apps provide live TV access without a cable subscription, such as news channel NHK World.
Apple has begun to consolidate live streaming access under an Apple TV feature called Live Tune-In. Live broadcasts can be watched immediately by asking Siri to watch a channel. Networks initially available included the following:
- Disney Channel
- Disney Junior
- Disney XD
- NBC Sports Live Extra
- Watch ESPN
