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.
