Apple continues to add new channels to the Apple TV set-top box. The company has added NBC, CBS All-Access, and Made to Measure (M2M) channels. (The fourth generation Apple TV will go on sale Monday, Oct. 26.)
The NBC channel allows you to watch full episodes of NBC shows on the Apple TV, though cable authentication is required for some features. The CBS channel offers access to the CBS All Access subscription service for US$5.99 per month. With it you can view current primetime shows, daytime and late-night CBS programming, and episodes from the network's library.
Made to Measure is a video service focused on fashion. It features short videos that WME/IMG, a talent agency conglomerate, has created for the channel, featuring interviews and mini-documentaries about folks in the fashion industry.
In July Showtime's streaming channel was added to the set-top box line-up. In June Apple added the NatGeo TV station from the National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild channel. In May the Apple TV added CBS Sports and USA Now. In April the line-up expanded with NBC Sports Live Extra to the Apple TV line-up. In March, Apple added Young Hollywood, Tastemade, TED, and CNNGo channels.
