The fourth-generation Apple TV Universal Search feature now supports Spike TV and Nickelodeon, including Nick Jr.
An improving TV app
The cross-platform TV app is available on the Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad.
The universal search feature allows users to search for content by title, genre, actor, and more across multiple apps and services using text input or voice search using the Siri Remote.
Apple Music subscribers can also use the feature to search for songs and albums. Users can also search movies and TV shows in iTunes.
It’s currently available in the United States and a handful of other countries. By a wide margin, users in the United States are able to take advantage the most content providers while searching.
Apple’s TV app has also gained support for a trio of new apps – Crackle, Filmstruck, and Freeform. Launched in October, the app is available on the Apple TV, iPhone, and iPad and works in tandem with the single sign-on feature.
To help unify the TV watching experience, the app will allow users to see all the shows and movies they are watching, find upcoming episodes, and get personalized recommendations on what to watch next. You can also view all of your iTunes videos. Probably the nicest feature is that you can start watching a show or movie directly through the app.
