Single Sign-on News

At Apple’s recent “Hello Again” event, the company announced that Single Sign-on is coming to the Apple TV at last, and the feature is available in the most recent tvOS betas. Unfortunately, it works with only two major providers so far: DirecTV and Dish. Thankfully, my earlier prediction about Single Sign-on being based on TV networks was wrong — you’ll authenticate with your TV provider during setup or in the Apple TV’s Settings, under Accounts, and that will activate all apps you’re entitled to access. Even better news: this feature is also coming to iOS, per Apple Insider.
