Apple TV will have a new sports option available with the addition of Yahoo Sports. While this is hardly a substitute for a full live sports channel the app will provide users with clips and information from across the major sports leagues and keep users informed about the latest news. Yahoo famously streamed an NFL game live last year but failed to be the home of online NFL streaming for Thursday Nights, losing out to Twitter.
Having an app in place on Apple’s growing platform is only natural as Yahoo continues to remake its image following its decision to drop the Yahoo Screen concept. Should we expect to see more singular purpose apps from Yahoo in the future, Yahoo News, Yahoo Originals etc?
