Not that additional Apple TV channels are a bad thing.
Apple quietly added several new channels and cable internet services onto the new Apple TV universal search and Siri search on Monday, following the addition of Fox and National Geographic earlier in the month. The new options bring Watch ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Jr and Disney X.D into the mix
Unfortunately, international Apple TV users continue to be left in the dark regarding ‘universal’ search. Outside of the US, a handful of countries get iTunes + Netflix integration in search results … the remainder only get iTunes.
The complete channel list is now up to 15 sources in total: iTunes, HBO GO, HBO NOW, Hulu, Netflix, PBS, PBS Kids, Showtime, Showtime Anytime, FOX Now, FX NOW, Nat Geo TV, Disney Channel, Disney X.D, Disney Jr and Watch ABC.
iPhone users can interact with the Apple TV’s Siri function, controlling the fourth-gen Apple TV from their smartphones and issuing commands when contextually appropriate.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become appropriate.
