If you’re like me, you probably like to skip the trouble of an one-week wait after each episode of your favorite TV show.

But as it turns out, Apple had much deeper plans. With the 6.2 update, Apple TV had gained the ability to show iTunes Extras on movie pages and the feature is now rolling out to all users.
The Vimeo channel on Apple TV received a huge overhaul today, just hours after Vimeo rolled out a major update to its own video-editing app on iOS, Cameo. The make over mostly involves a redesigned user interface, better video discovery features and a push on their video-on-demand contents.
