As Apple’s TV app continues to be in beta within iOS 10.2 and tvOS 10.1, the service has gained some more apps over the last few weeks and ow it has gained a new cable provider for Single Sign-On.

Today, AT&T’s DirecTV is now an option to sign in via Single Sign-On. With the addition of DirecTV, it makes the provider the largest provider to support the feature thus far with over 20 million U.S. subscribers, besting Dish and Sling TV.

The addition of DirecTV isn’t a surprise though. When Single Sign-On was originally introduced, Apple touted “DirecTV, Dish Network, and more.” Still, the larger players such as Comcast and Charter/Time Warner aren’t on board yet.

Apple says Single Sign-On in addition to the new TV app will become available to the public in December, presumably alongside iOS 10.2 and tvOS 10.1 which are currently in beta.
