Apple expands use of iPhone and Siri on Apple TV

Apple is trying to juice popularity for Apple TV by making it more accessible from your other devices.

Consumers can now use their iPhone for a more advanced remote control, with tools like playback, touch for navigation and an accelerometer for gamers, said Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, at the company's worldwide developer conference on Monday in San Francisco.

Additionally, Apple's voice-controlled Siri software now has more capabilities in relation to the TV. Cue gave the example of telling Siri to show clips of Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry's three-pointers. YouTube opened up on the television.

There's also a feature called live tune-in that allows you to go to a specific channel, like ESPN2, with a Siri command.
