While not as extensive as the Sports interface, the News section in the TV app allows users to instantly access live streaming news content from several different networks.

The Olympics coverage section is found within the "For You" tab of Apple News. Apple has partnered with NBC, the network that is covering the Pyeongchang, South Korea Olympics, to bring real-time news updates about the event through its Apple News app. Both Google's and Apple's news hits speak to how those in the business of tech but outside the traditional business of media are looking to get their own share of audience around the Olympics, which is one of the most-watched sporting events in the world. This new section is in partnership with NBC, however, the app will show coverage from a whole range of sources, as well as content created by the Apple News editor. However, Apple did say that certain clips from the different events will be available for direct viewing within the Apple News app. Once you've installed the app for each network you're interested in, you'll be able to quickly navigate between them using Siri's voice control functionality. Users can even add events they want to follow or watch to their planner.
