Are you an iPhone or iPad user? Do you feel irritation when you sign in dozens of several paid-TV apps with the same cable IDs? If yes, here is a great news for you! Apple has activated the Single Sign-On (SSO) feature for the users of Apple TV and iOS devices.
Single Sign-On is one of the most-awaited features for Apple devices this year. It is designed to let users get access their favorite TV content on tvOS as well as iOS apps with ultimate convenience. To enjoy this feature, users will need to enter their credentials they use with their TV provider just once, and it’ll manage all the supported apps you can access automatically on your iPhone, iPad or Apple TV.
At WWDC 2016 Event Apple held in June, Apple announced “Single Sign-On” feature for the first time. And it was expected to launch with the official release of tvOS in September. But now, it is available on devices running the tvOS 10.1 and iOS 10.2 developer and public betas. This feature is recently supported by only four major Apple TV providers named, Dish, Sling TV, GVTC Communications, and Hotwire. At this time, only Dish Network and Sling TV are accessible around the U.S., hence, Sling is the only TV service provider which enables you to sign up and start using right away.
Enable Single Sign-On on your iPhone or iPad and have a wonderful TV experience!
