How to Enable Single Sign-On in tvOS 10.1 on Apple TV

With Single Sign-On available in tvOS 10.1, you would be able to make the most of the TV content with more flair-without having to sign into each app individually.

When Apple announced tvOS 10 WWDC 2016, “Single Sign-On” was one of the most talked about features. After a long wait, it has arrived with tvOS 10.1.

What makes Single Sign-On such a handy feature is the ability to let you access TV content on tvOS apps with absolute freedom. Once you have logged into it, you will be automatically signed in to your entire supported apps installed on your Apple TV. (To Enable Single Sign-On on iPhone and iPad , check out this post.)
