Apple TV’s universal search now supports Discovery and more

“Apple has again expanded the reach of Apple TV’s universal search feature, adding a handful of new content providers, including Discovery Communications and Filmstruck,” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Mac.

“Introduced with iOS 10, universal search makes finding content on your Apple TV easier than ever,” Bell reports. “In seconds, you can search for shows from all compatible providers, without having to open individual apps and perform multiple searches in each one.”

“Since universal search landed, Apple has been working to expand its reach — particularly in the U.S.,” Bell reports. “This week, the company added a handful of new providers, including those from Discovery Communications, like AHC GO, Destination America GO, and Discovery Life GO.”

MacDailyNews Take: We’re hoping that this is the year (October?) that we’ll see new hardware (4K capable!) and updates for Apple TV that make the device compelling again! We need a bunch of them for our TVs (mainly for accessing Sony’s PlayStation Vue service), but we’re holding out for new hardware, at least, hopefully to come in a few months.


  1. I’m sure it’s on Timmy’s To-Do list. But, the new Gender Transitioning Apple Watch Smart bands come first. They let you know when it’s more advantageous to be male or female by changing from blue to pink or vice versa. All done in the background based on what your brain tells you that day.
