Apple TV is adding to its growing collection of apps! Today Apple announced that the WatchESPN app and HBO Go is being added to the lineup! The catch with both of these is that you have to have a subscription to an authorized provider (i.e. Comcast), and you have to have those channels in your package to be able to view the apps on Apple TV. For those that have those subscriptions, this will give an awesome additional feature with Apple TV. With WatchESPN you can watch live events, SportsCenter, and even over seasons sporting events like Cricket and Australian Rules Football. With HBO GO you get a great assortment of on demand content with HBO.
Here is the statement from Apple:
“HBO GO and WatchESPN are some of the most popular iOS apps and are sure to be huge hits on Apple TV,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services. “We continue to offer Apple TV users great new programming options, combined with access to all of the incredible content they can purchase from the iTunes Store.”
Apple keeps improving on to the best home television streaming box!
