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.
WWDC 2014 keynote kicks off in less that one hour and Apple will be streaming it live on the Apple TV via a temporary Apple Events channel that should have appeared on your Apple TV’s main menu earlier today. Tune in at 10 am PST/1 pm EST/7 pm CET.
Last-minute predictions from John Gruber: “An updated Apple TV seems like a possibility.”
For the first time since 2010 “Back to the Mac” event Apple will live stream its keynote on the web: the company has updated Apple Special Event page where the live stream from today’s iPad mini event will start at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Apple has also added a new “Apple Events” icon to the Apple TV home screen. For now, the new channel only offers some past Apple events but it invites users to tune in at 10:00 a.m. Pacific time to watch today’s event live. It’s the first time Apple TV users can watch Apple event live directly on the Apple TV.
Wondering how to watch live sport streaming on Apple TV? The answer is easy: XBMC, AirPlay, Mac/PC screen mirroring and, of course, native Apple TV sport apps. Finding football, baseball, basketball, soccer, tennis, UFC, WWF, or anything else on your Apple TV can feel like and impossible task to anyone one who sits down and sees the limited options in Apple iOS interface, with its limited content partnerships. Though it looks bleak there is a very bright cloud to this quandary and that is the never-ending combination of features we can through at this magical little box.
