Apple has added support for searching Spike, Nickelodeon, and Nick. Jr. to the fourth-generation Apple TV’s Universal Search feature, allowing users to call up results from these channels in Siri or by typing queries into the built-in tvOS Search app. A new set of services have also been brought into the fold of Apple’s “TV” app, including Crackle, FilmStruck, and Freeform (the Disney/ABC channel formerly known as ABC Family). Like most of the content services available on the Apple TV, these newest additions are available in the U.S. only. Apple maintains a list on its web site of all of the content channels supported by the Apple TV Universal Search, as well as a separate list of apps supported by the “TV” app. [via AppleInsider]
