CNBC, Fox Now added to US Apple TV lineup

updated 11:23 am EDT, Tue July 29, 2014

Bulk of content locked to cable subscriptions

Apple has added a pair of new app channels to the Apple TV, CNBC and Fox Now. The former is NBC's business network, while the latter offers access to shows like Glee, Family Guy, and The Following. In both cases, viewers must have a cable subscription to unlock the full range of content. Otherwise, people are limited to a much smaller selection of clips and episodes.

Entering cable info enables live streams and on-demand content for CNBC, and access to new episodes of Fox shows a day after broadcast. People without a cable subscription will have to wait a week after broadcast for new episodes to appear. Fox Now in general carries the last five to eight episodes of a show for 35 days.

The app shouldn't be confused with FXNow, which will appear on the Apple TV in the next year and be the first app to carry The Simpsons' back catalog.
