Now showing games from Harmonix, Beat Sports.
Nice to see one of Boston's leading game companies getting a piece of the action.
"harmonix games lets everyone interact with music, regardless of your musical background."
You can use iPhone or iPad to control your character in the game, which involves trying to dodge cars, trains, and barges as you cross various modes of transportation.
Never played this Crossy Road game. Looks like fun...
Crossy Road? iOS game coming to TV. Looks like Frogger.
Airbnb, Zillow also coming to Apple TV.
New Guitar Hero coming to Apple TV.
Gave some developers access to the OS, to develop their own apps. HBO, Hulu, "Galaxy on Fire" game.
Guitar Hero for Apple TV...hmmm...will Harmonix join them?
New operating system for TV -- tvOS.
Existing content on Apple TV is there, plus improved Apple Music.
To switch apps, can just ask Siri to "open music."
Can also ask Siri unrelated questions like Red Sox scores, weather. Info shows at bottom of screen, can swipe up for full screen, more info.
You can ask ordinary Siri-type questions while watching tv, and see answers at the bottom of the screen.
Using Siri to filter down search on cast, date, age rating.
Tell Siri you missed what was just said, Siri will go back and temporarily turn on captions.
Swiping across touch screen to browse Apple TV, or use Siri voice search.
Waiting to see if it interacts with cable or broadcast TV services...
Siri will search iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Showtime.
Cue wearing a snazzy red shirt, untucked as always.
Searches across multiple content apps. That's good. Xbox One has had that for awhile.
Remote has a Siri button, as well as a touch screen.
"Show me funny TV shows." That indicates that the speech system understands casual speech. Doesn't require using "exactly the right words."
Voice and touch controls work terribly on my Samsung TV. Bet Apple does it better.
Seems to have a little iPhone-like touch screen built in.
New remote shown in demo video.
Shows off the new Apple TV.
"We've been working really hard -- and really long -- to bring all of these together."
