Wednesday 6 December 2017 | 17:31 CET | News

Apple is expanding further with its own video services and announced the addition of live sports to its Apple TV app in the US. The Apple TV app is available to iPhone, iPad and Apple TV users to store and watch content they've purchased from iTunes as well as access other video providers. Apple is now offering sports apps from ESPN and the NBA so customers in the US can watch live sports over its app. More sports services will be added in future, Apple said.

A new 'Sports' tab has also been added to the Apple TV app, so fans can see the teams, leagues and sporting events currently playing or coming up soon, along with the time remaining and current scores. They can also receive on-screen notifications when a game is about to start, and when their favorite teams are in a close game.
