Apple has today introduced a new channel for its Apple TV set-top box, with National Geographic signing up with the just recently launched Apple Events channel which will play host to this year’s WWDC keynote occasion.
The new NatGeo TV channel makes it possible for owners of Apple Televisions to watch on-demand content such as documentaries of all kinds, with clips available totally free. Don’t get too excited though,
due to the fact that if you want to watch complete programs then you will certainly have to plug your cable television carrier’s details in before enjoying.
The addition of the new NatGeo TV channel is the current in a line of such channels to arrive on the Apple TV over the last year or so. Reports have long had Apple working to handle the cable television service
market by introducing its own subscription-based streaming service powered by the Apple TV, however yet absolutely nothing has materialized. With additions such as the brand-new National Geographic channel joining content
from the similarity HBO in addition to existing partners on top of the vast iTunes service provided by Apple itself, the Apple TV keeps going from strength to strength.
Even if Apple does not finally introduce some sort of streaming video service at next week’s WWDC, the arrival of a new Apple TV is relatively most likely specifically thinking about the decrease in price that the existing model saw recently. A brand-new, more effective set-top box may be on the horizon, with Apple rumored to have apps of sorts ready to launch along with it.
At this point we would not want to be brave enough to try and think what is next for the Apple TV or Apple’s fabled video streaming service, specifically given the current claims that Apple has actually offered up on
introducing its own television due to issues getting content partners lined up.
As WWDC draws ever nearer the wait to find out simply want Apple has in store grows much shorter and shorter. And as usual, we’ll be covering all the statements that will be made on the special day, which is June 8th, next Monday, so remain tuned to our protection.
