Apple TV adds CNBC and Fox Now channels


Apple added two new channels to Apple TV for customers in the U.S. on Tuesday, along with a few other additions for countries around the world.

Starting today, Apple TV users can access the new CNBC and Fox Now channels to watch on-demand video content from the company’s top programs like Cosmos & 24 on the Fox end, and uhhhh, American Greed and Restaurant Startups on CNBC.

The big feature of the CNBC channel is the ability to live stream it programming in real-time, as long as you already have a cable or satellite subscription.

Fox Now also requires a cable subscription to get full access to its on-demand content offerings, but some series such as 24, Gang Related, Cosmos, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Sleepy Hollow, and Master Chef Jr., can be viewed right away.

Apple also informed The Loop that it added a TV 2 Sumo channel in Norway, giving users access to sports content like the English Premier League, as well as kids’ shows, documentaries, news and dramas.¬†¬†Esporte Interativo has been added as the first channel in Latin America, providing¬†users access to Brazil’s most watched sports channel for a $4.99 monthly subscription.
