Apple adds nine more apps to universal search in Apple TV

Apple has beefed up its universal search feature in Apple TV, adding support for HGTV, A&E, Food Network, History, Lifetime, Cooking Channel, DIY, FYI and Travel Channel. That brings the total number of searchable apps to 31, all of which are listed on Apple’s website. Using Siri or Search in Apple TV will now provide results from all of those apps and iTunes when users go looking for a movie or TV show. Earlier this month Bravo, E!, Syfy and USA were also added to the search.

The search shows users everywhere a movie or show is available, whether they have the app installed or not. If users select a service provider and the app isn’t installed on their Apple TV, the device will prompt them to install it.
