News stations available include Bloomberg, CBS News, Cheddar, CNBC, CNN, and Fox News.

To get the feature to work, you'll need the accompanying apps for the news providers listed.

Apple's PyeongChang Olympics coverage is provided by NBC across both iOS devices and Apple TVs. Not long after adding a dedicated sports section to the Apple TV app, the company will now be rolling out a "News" section as well.

If you don't have the corresponding app on your iOS device or Apple TV, you'll be redirected to download it from the App Store. 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. For instance, simply say "Play CNN" to immediately jump to the live feed in the CNN application. Sports has not really been a huge focus in that context, although Apple did add a dedicated Sports tab to Apple TV in September, perhaps laying the groundwork for this and many more activities down the line. In the United States, the additions provide easy access to both text and video news, though only a handful of partners are now featured.

Check out a few screenshots below or visit the For You section in Apple News to see more. It appears to be live for users running the latest iOS 11.2.5 and tvOS 11.2.5 releases.
