Major network TV4 landed on the Apple TV in Sweden yesterday, becoming the first Scandinavian content provider to launch on Apple set-top box. Apple TV users in Sweden can now access TV4 Group’s TV4 Play service that gives viewers direct access to a wide range of TV4 content including live broadcasting and on-demand content.
And here it is, yet another channel to clutter your home screen. As hinted earlier by a WWE spokesperson at the Vegas press meet last month, WWE Network is now available on Apple TV and iOS devices. Most of the details were already revealed then, but for those who missed that post, here is a summary to catch up.
The Beatles have been all over the news last week, thanks to the 50 year milestone (Feb 9) of the iconic pop band’s first performance in The Ed Sullivan Show. Looks like Apple is celebrating and they’re doing it in a big, never-before way. They have launched a new channel on the Apple TV simply named, The Beatles.
Before you start rolling your eyes down this page, let me ask “Do you watch WWE matches?”. If you’re answer is ‘no’, there is no sensible reason to go beyond this point. On the other hand, if you like to watch men bashing heads on the ring and breaking necks with chairs, you can join our celebrations, because WWE shows are reported to be scheduled for an entry into the Apple TV.
