Apple is on a role with their updates and allowing third parties to hook into their Apple TV device: back in June the company added HBO GO, WatchESPN and Sky News apps, last month Vevo TV, Disney Channels, Smithsonian and Weather Channel showed up on our little black devices, next it was Amazon with their update to watch Amazon Video on the Apple TV, and then the big 6.0 firmware update offering iTunes Radio, iTunes Music Store and AirPlay from iCloud. Yesterday Apple added yet more content with Major League Soccer and Disney Junior channels appearing now on Apple TV home screen.
You might remember the latest over-the-air content update for the second and third generation Apple TV, released a couple of days back. This introduced some new apps like VEVO, Disney Channel, Disney XD, The Whether channel and Smithsonian. On closer scrutiny, users have pointed out brand new channels in the refreshed WatchESPN app.
Apple has just released a big update to the second and third generation Apple TV. Apple TV software version 5.3 adds HBO GO and WatchESPN, which are now available directly on our little black boxes. In addition, three new content providers are also available today on Apple TV including Sky News, Crunchyroll and Qello offering live news, sports and current TV programming.
