Late last year, ABC launched an Apple TV channel called Watch ABC, which not only has the broadcast network’s programming on demand, but in some cities you could also watch the live broadcast of the local affiliate.
At this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple unveiled iOS 8 and a plethora of new features that are designed to bring new life to their mobile platform. At the same time, though, they wanted to put a lot of focus on the synergy between their mobile software and the operating system geared towards their Macs. They call it Continuity, and while they had specific features that fell into the category, there are other features that could easily fall into that idea. One of them is Family Sharing, and Apple TV is looking to get into the sharing is caring mentality.
Apple has just added three new channels from the A&E Network to the Apple TV. This includes A&E, the History Channel and Lifetime. Although free previews will be offered to the users, they will require a cable subscription to view full content on these channels. Subscribers of DirecTV, Verizon FiOS and Cablevision Optimum can benefit from this new addition at the moment.
