Apple TV owners just got a couple new additions to the channel lineup. Soccer fans can now get access to the subscription-based MLS channel, providing the rest of the season’s matches going into the playoffs for $25, or $14.99 per month. The full season of Major League Soccer normally costs $59.95 for over 230 games, although local blackouts apply.
And, families now have another way to watch Disney XD programming. The channel is viewable by customers who normally get the channel on TV and can provide a username and password from their service provider. Disney XD original shows include Kickin’ It, Lab Rats, and Crash & Bernstein. Additional broadcasts include Kid vs. Kat, Zeke and Luther, Max Steel, and Ultimate Spider-Man.
Other new channels recently launched on Apple TV include: iTunes Radio, with 300 genre selection of free streaming music; Smithsonian Channel, with original programming about the planet, life and culture; Disney Channel broadcasting TV shows, movies and original productions such as Teen Beach Movie; The Weather Channel providing both local and national weather information; and Vevo, with 24/7 music videos and live streaming music events.
Apple TV sells for $99 and is available at most electronics retailers.
