Apple is continuing to relentlessly add new content sources to the already crowded Apple TV Home screen with Tuesday’s addition of Hallmark Card’s Feeln and A&E’s FYI network channels, as first reported by MacRumors editor Eric Slivka.
The $99 media-streaming device now includes on-demand shows and features on “contemporary lifestyle” topics from the FYI network as well as those by the streaming family movie channel Feeln, which has a nice selection of “family friendly movies, documentaries and short films”.
The FYI channel (formerly The Biography Channel) is pictured top of post. According to the description, FYI features “lifestyle programming, with a mix of reality, culinary, home renovation and makeover series.”
Although FYI offers some content free of charge, you must authenticate with a cable provider (Bright House, DirecTV, Dish, Optimum, Time Warner Cable, Verizon Fios and a bunch of local providers) in order to gain full access to streaming on-demand shows like House vs. House, Midnight Feast and Unlivable.

Feeln offers family movies, as well as documentaries, original shorts, Hallmark originals and even Hollywood movies such as Annie, Babe, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Free Willy and Grease. The network offers a $4.99 per month subscription ($47.99 per year) available in-app. A one-week free trial is available.
The new channels should have been automatically added to your Apple TV’s Home screen. If not, reboot your device or choose Software Update in Settings.
And should your Home screen become a little overwhelming, you can hide unwanted app icons easily.
