Apple TV 4 adds Disney Channel, Disney XD and Watch ABC to universal search + Siri

Messages Image(2217315798)

Apple has added several new channels and cable internet services onto the new Apple TV universal search and Siri search today, following the addition of Fox and National Geographic earlier in the month. Today’s enhancements brings Watch ABC, Disney ChannelDisney Jr and Disney X.D into the mix allowing users to quickly search across these services in the Apple TV UI. As shown in the screenshot, Modern Family now lists ABC as a viewing option alongside Netflix, iTunes and Hulu. Selecting Watch ABC takes the user directly to the app with the show ready to watch.

Unfortunately, international Apple TV users continue to be left in the dark regarding ‘universal’ search. Outside of the US, a handful of countries get iTunes + Netflix integration in search results … the remainder only get iTunes.

Apple has been expanding the supported services list since the Apple TV’s launch in October. As well as the channel providers listed above, Apple has added Fox, National Geographic, FX Now, PBS and PBS Kids to the United States’ universal search in 2016.

The complete channel list is now up to 15 sources in total: iTunes, HBO GO, HBO NOW, Hulu, Netflix, PBS, PBS Kids, Showtime, Showtime Anytime, FOX Now, FX NOW, Nat Geo TV, Disney Channel, Disney X.D, Disney Jr and Watch ABC.

Although this is marketed primarily as an Apple TV feature, it is not wholly exclusive to the platform. iPhone users can use Siri on their phones to also see these universal search providers in action, when contextually appropriate.

Apple shows employees lighter side of Steve Jobs in wake of upcoming negative movies

Screenshot 2015-10-06 10.13.14

ABC published some out-takes from a video Apple provided it showing Steve Jobs in the run up to the iPhone launch and at other times later in his tenure at Apple that depict his lighter, more humanistic side. Apple has previously worked with ABC, providing Tim Cook airtime to discuss both Apple and Steve Jobs a year ago.

The move by Apple is likely in response to two negative movies that portray the Apple cofounder in an arguably negative light; these are hitting theaters this month. The release of these clips follow up on Apple executives posting positive essays about Jobs in recent days on Apple’s website for employees.

Steve Jobs’s own wife, Laurene Powell Jobs, even reportedly tried to stop the Sorkin movie from launching, but she never publicly confirmed these attempts. Former Apple colleagues such as Andy Hertzfeld have said that the movie “deviates from reality everywhere,” while the movie’s producers stress they “made a good movie.”

The Steve Jobs movie, based on Walter Isaacson’s authorized biography, goes on limited release in theaters on October 9th and general release on October 23rd.

Comcast unveils upcoming live TV streaming package for cord-cutters ahead of rumored Apple’s Web TV service

Comcast Stream iPad

While Apple’s rumored Web TV service is expected to launch with new hardware and software later this year, Comcast has shown its cards on what it describes as an “experiment” to offer live TV streaming to its Internet subscribers without cable packages. Stream, a $15/month Xfinity add-on, will allow Comcast Internet subscribers to view live and on-demand streaming television from “about a dozen networks” including HBO and other major broadcast networks.

Comcast says Stream will be available on “laptops, tablets and phones,” but subscribers will be restricted to their Xfinity WiFi at home to access the service from those devices.

That restriction makes streaming TV shows and movies when traveling not possible, instead mimicking the current restrictions that cable subscribers face with tablets and phones instead of TV sets.

A cloud-based DVR feature will be available, however, which Comcast says will let subscribers record up to 20 hours of content for viewing at home and away.

As Comcast describes Stream as experimental, the company is rolling out the feature in limited waves. Xfinity subscribers in Boston will be among the first to sign up for Stream by the end of summer with Chicago and Seattle promised next. Comcast says it plans to roll out Stream everywhere Xfinity is available early next year.

While Apple’s offering is expected to include roughly 25 channels for $30-$40 month, Stream promises live access to ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, FOX, The CW, Telemundo, and more for $15/month. Including live local programming has been said to be a goal for Apple’s own package.

Aside from a beta live TV streaming service, Comcast has also introduced a fast-but-expensive home Internet service option to Xfinity customers. Ars Technica reports that Comcast’s super high speed 2Gbps home Internet service will be officially priced at $299.95/month and include as much as $1,000 in fees for setup and activation, and yes, Stream will still be an additional $15/month if interested.
