The Apple TV is quickly becoming what Apple imagined for the device when it was first introduced in 2007. The company is adding new channels and services as quickly as it can negotiate with media companies. On Wednesday, Apple added support for ABC, Bloomberg, Crackle and Korean KORTV. With “Watch ABC,” customers will be able to take advantage of the same features they currently have on their iOS devices and will be able to stream ABC and other services from the company directly on their Apple TV.
The Apple TV now gives users access to a multitude of financial information with Bloomberg, and allows for free streaming of TV shows and movies with Crackle and the popular Korean channel, KORTV. These latest applications will be joining a number of other apps available on the Apple TV, including MLB TV, YouTube, Vimeo, Netflix, HBO GO, and Hulu Plus. Apple has been reported to be working with Time Warner Cable and the TV network The CW on bringing channels for the services to the Apple TV.
