ABC News, for the true news junkie
ABC, like CBS and NBC, is one of the "Big 3" news outlets. This app offers breaking and daily news coverage on Apple TV.
Local news from Anywhere. ABC News - Breaking US & World is going to look pretty similar to some of the other mainstream news apps out there, but that's okay, that means you'll quickly be able to navigate. What makes it different? Tons of local stories. Select the places you want to get local news from. So finally it doesn't matter where you live. If you try and watch ABC using your cable provider you will only get your own local channels. The ABC News app for Apple TV lets you pick from Georgia, to Houston, to Phoenix. You name it.
