Apple TV’s tvOS 10.1 update is now available, 9 to 5 Mac reported Monday.

The new version for the fourth generation Apple TV comes on the same day iOS 10.2 and watchOS 3.1.1 were released.

Here’s what’s new:

TV App

Apple’s new “TV” app, which recommends users new movies and TV series, is available with the update. The app is divided in sections, “Library,” “Watch Now,” “Store” and “Search.” The app allows users to go back to seeing films and TV shows where they left off.

Single Sign-On

The new update comes with the Single Sign-On feature. The function makes it easier for cable TV subscribers. It allows users to watch content across different apps without having to sign-in all the time. The feature is available for CenturyLink Prism, DirecTV, Dish, GVTC, GTA, Hawaiian Telcom, Hotwire, Metrocast, Service Electric and Sling TV.


The new update comes with a new sports Siri update. Users can now ask Siri for up-to-the-minute sports score and can jump to live broadcasts.

The update also comes with a new app called iBooks StoryTime, an app that reads out loud to children. Apple’s tvOS can be accessed through the settings app on the Apple TV.
