Lost Remote reports on ABC News’ Apple TV launch this morning, which in addition to a variety of national and global news content, offers some local news flavor.
The new Apple TV product, which launched this morning at 10amET, offers a local news section, which showcases top video-on-demand clips from some of the country’s biggest markets. At launch, content from eight ABC-owned stations — including WABC in New York, KABC in Los Angeles, WLS in Chicago, WPVI in Philadelphia, KGO in San Francisco, KTRK in Houston, WTVD in Raleigh and KFSN in Fresno — can be found under the local tab. Content from WISN, Hearst’s ABC affiliate in Milwaukee, will also be offered.
“The local experience is something that we’re very eager to launch and then expand upon,” Doug Vance, ABC News VP of Product Strategy, said.
