Only a few days after the release of iOS 11.2, Apple has released tvOS 11.2 for the fourth-gen Apple TV and the Apple TV 4K.

The most notable change is the addition of the Sports section to TV. The “Sports” tab joins the previous options of “Watch Now,” “Library,” “Store” and “Search.” It features quick links to live games and the ability to rewatch games that already occurred.

The new TV app feature list includes alerts for when a team is about to play, allowing users to begin streaming a game as soon as it starts. Supported leagues include Major League Baseball, the National Football League, the National Basketball League, college football, men’s college basketball and more.

Other changes include video display mode switching to match the frame rate and dynamic range of played content, and some user interface refinements.

The tvOS 11.2 update can be snagged either via automatic updates, or manually via the Settings app.

If you’ve tried the update and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
