Along with OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and iOS 8.3, Apple today released a new Apple TV firmware. According to the official release note, Apple TV Software Update 7.2 only includes “general performance and stability improvements.”
Announced at Apple’s Spring Forward event last month, HBO NOW standalone streaming service is now available exclusively on Apple TV. HBO NOW doesn’t require a cable subscription and costs $14.99 per month. If you sign up in April (no long-term commitment required) you’ll get a 30 day free trial.
Apple TV has just gained a new CNNgo channel featuring live streaming and on-demand content. CNNgo requires a subscription to a participating pay-TV partner for viewing live content and full shows, while the short clips can be watched without a cable subscription.
