Apple TV adds Crackle, Watch ABC, and KORTV channels in addition to Bloomberg

In addition to Bloomberg joining the Apple TV channel lineup today, a handful of other channels were added as well.

Sony’s Crackle service offers a number of television shows and movies without any subscription cost.

The new Watch ABC channel features a number of hit TV shows from the broadcaster including the new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D series, but requires a subscription from a service provider including AT&T, Charter, Comcast, Google Fiber, Verizon FiOS, and others.

KORTV offers Korean-based content including paid video on-demand.

With all of these channels being added (and many requiring cable subscriptions), it should come as a relief to many that the next update to Apple TV offers a simplified interface for hiding channels in the main menu of the settings. Currently, hiding unused channels requires disabling channels in the parental settings.

    So many of these are useless to me without the added option to subscribe to each individually without a cable subscription. I refuse to pay for cable, and wish to live off Apple TV. HBO, ABC, Disney and the like need to give in and allow us to pay through iTunes for ala carte subscriptions.

    The cable cartel erects a paywall again. No love for the cord cutter. Really ABC?
