Apple TV updated with new channels

Apple on Tuesday updated Apple TV with a number of new channels from around the world.

CNBC offers real-time streaming of its programming on Apple TV, as well as giving users on-demand video from its signature programs. You will need to authenticate with your cable or satellite provider in order to watch any of the CNBC programming.

Fox Now is available to authenticated cable and satellite users, offering full episodes of hit shows. This channel also offers a personalized home screen based on your user preferences.

TV 2 Sumo is available in Norway and gives users premium sports content like the English Premier League. You can also watch programming for kids, live channels and entire seasons of dramas, news and documentaries.

Esporte Interativo is Brazil’s most watched sports channel and Apple’s first channel in Latin America. This channel costs $4.99 for a monthly subscription.

I love my Apple TV and use it all the time. I watch many of the channels on the device itself and AirPlay content to it often. I do wish I didn’t have to authenticate with my cable provider though. I’d gladly pay a subscription for some of these channels if the option was available to me.
