It may not be quite the major update Apple TV looks set to receive at WWDC (thanks to the expected Siri API), but if you’re a pay-TV fan of shows from NBCUniversal’s Bravo, Syfy and E! networks you’re in luck because Apple TV just launched three new apps letting you watch content from the stations.

Apple TV could become an Amazon Echo rival

Apple is planning to open Siri up to third-party developers and it appears that Apple TV could be the biggest benefactor from the expanded platform.

In order to better compete with Amazon’s Echo devices, Apple reportedly plans to update the Apple TV with more Siri features that will hopefully turn the device into the hub of everything.
