Apple continues adding new content sources to its recently-discounted $69 set-top box at a relentless pace, with news Tuesday that Apple TV owners can now enjoy content from TED Talks, Tastemade and Young Hollywood on their TV sets.
The three new channels were added to Apple’s set-top box in the United States. Just recently, the Apple TV gained UFC, The Scene, Fusion, Daily Motion and other content sources.
TED Talks is especially interesting.
Previously available in the form of audio and video podcasts on iTunes and on iPhones and iPads through the free iOS conference app in the App Store, TED Talks cover popular topics ranging from religion, science and technology to education and more.
A highly customized channel lets you browse content by category, access built-in playlists of Talks videos and more. The app also makes it easy to log in with your existing TED account to sync your viewing history across devices.
Tastemade is a premium food and travel channel with hundreds of episodes available for streaming. “The first 100 percent digital food and travel lifestyle network” also has a free iPhone and iPad app for enjoying its content on the go.
Young Hollywood, as the name suggests, is what you’ll tune in to get your daily dose of entertainment news, celebrities, gossips, exclusive interviews and popular shows like Pop Culture Underground and Amp’d Up.
If these channels don’t appear automatically on your Apple TV Home screen, just restart the device to complete the silent update process.
The Cupertino firm announced at its “Spring Forward” media event earlier this month that HBO’s online-only $15 per month video subscription service will be launching in April as an Apple TV exclusive during a three-month period.
