Can you still sign in with zero sign in if you are not on network?

    My uh, friend, logs in to his parents cable subscription for all his Apple TV channels so obviously his Apple TV won’t see the proper cable network through his home connection with the new zero login automatic setup. Will the new zero login prevent this from happening or will there still be a way to sign in to the cable subscriber for the channels?

    There will have to be a way to sign in. Not all people use the same cable and internet providers. For example, I use Directv for television and Frontier Fios for Internet.

    The offering is not even out yet. You want a hypothetical answer?

    Yup, not to mention all the growing alternative TV options now, like Direct TV Now, Sling, Hulu....

    To the OP: I doubt anything will change for most of the people in the US when it comes to ZSO on tvOS 12. I would bet that your friend will sign on to their apps the same way that they have been doing.

    SSO has been around for a while now and the big cable companies still don't participate. This is just a guess, but I don't think they will participate with ZSO either.
