Here’s a bit of good news for TV watchers everywhere: As first reported by
Mac Rumors, Apple has just added four new channels to the Apple TV’s offerings.
In certain markets, Apple TV owners can now use their set-top boxes to watch content from their local ABC affiliate—provided that the functionality is enabled for their specific geographical location. Financial channel
Bloomberg TV, Korean network KOR TV, and on-demand provider
Crackle also made their first appearance in the lineup on Wednesday.
The folks from Cupertino have been aggressively adding content to the Apple TV lately; the new channels
join a number of other entertainment options that have been added over the last year, including PBS, Disney, Vevo, HBO GO, and ESPN.
And that might not be all; speaking of Bloomberg, the financial giant
reported last July that Apple was trying to strike a deal with Time Warner to bring some of its programming to the Apple TV, while the CW has reportedly already
reached an agreement that will see its content added to the set-top box’s lineup at some point.
