Apple TV: What's On

I had some time and looked at the Apple TV apps and took some notes on what was free, required subscriptions, or required a TV broadcast provider. I did not sign up for all the services but checked if they required one to identify their broadcast provider. Some apps provided limited content without a subscription. Of course, this is subject to change.

‘Apps’ that require a TV broadcast service provider (such as Time Warner, at&t U-Vers, etc):
  • A&E (Not available to at&t U-verse customers)
  • ABC (Watch ABC)
  • ABC News
  • CNBC
  • CNN go
  • Disney Channel
  • Disney Junior
  • Disney XD
  • ESPN
  • FX NOW
  • FYI (Not available to at&t U-verse customers)
  • HBO GO
  • History (Not available to at&t U-verse customers)
  • Lifetime (Not available to at&t U-verse customers)
  • NBA
  • NBC Sports
  • Showtime Anytime
  • USA Now

If the above ‘apps’ are important to you, you can not ‘cut the cord.’ You need to continue to subscribe to a broadcast provider - it’s possible that some of the content is not available with your subscribed package.
Some activation URLs did not function.
