Viewers can rely on AccuWeather's personalized, exclusive weather experience on Apple TV, in addition to the AccuWeather iOS app, for weather information and updates with Superior Accuracy.” In addition, AccuWeather says it will immediately release weather warnings to alert Apple TV consumers as information becomes available, with the aim of keeping users up-to-date at all times and ready for any potential weather hazards. AccuWeather has previously been accessible via web, Android and iOS devices, and the new shift to Apple TV will increase its market to include more worldwide locations.
