Apple Adds New Channels to Apple TV
Okay, so we're still waiting for a long-overdue Apple TV hardware update. But even as our impatience runs thin, Apple is doing its best to hold our interest with the addition of several new channels to its set-top box.
On Tuesday morning, millions of Apple TV owners discovered four new additions to the streaming line-up available on the $99 Apple TV. New to the platform are ABC News, PBS Kids, AOL On, and Willow.
Presumably, the biggest addition of the day - or at least the most interesting one - is AOL On, a network that delivers close to one million videos to Apple TV. Although most of the clips are fairly brisk (they're short vids from various AOL properties like Huffington Post, TechCrunch, etc.) there are some more elaborate chunks of content from other heavy-hitting content partners, like the folks at ESPN and even The New York Times.
Apple TV, however, didn't break any molds today with the addition of AOL On. Roku, Microsoft's Xbox 360, and Amazon Fire TV are among the many competing streaming platforms to already offer the channel.
