There is a very interesting feature called “Sign Sign-On” in iOS 10.2 and tvOS 10.1. It allows you to access TV content on tvOS as well as iOS apps with utmost convenience. You will need to use your credentials just once and be automatically signed in to all the supported apps on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV.

As of now, Single Sign-On feature is limited to only a few TV providers, like Dish, GVTC Communications, Hotwire, and Sling TV. Moreover, apps haven't yet been updated to support this new feature.
