Categories first appeared for new Apple TV users in the U.S. in early November, but now it’s finally available in Canada.

The addition of Categories is essential for users of tvOS to make app discovery better on the new streaming device, which is pegged to have nearly 2,700 apps, according to recent data from AppFigures.

    Maybe it’s just me, but even though I have 140 apps on my iPhone, all I use on the Apple TV is the Music app, Plex, and Netflix.

    There could be 100,000 more apps available and I’m pretty sure I’d still use those three apps.

    I use a lot more than that but I use a US iTunes account and have access to a buddy’s Xfinity account….
