This morning Apple added three new channels to the Apple TV – TED Talks, Young Hollywood, and Tastemade. I just finished checking my Apple TV and all three new channels were present. Of the three, I think that I will find the TED Talks channel will be the most useful to me. I looked over some of the recent presentations and see several I want to view. In summary the new channels provide:
- TED Talks – presentations on a variety of topics
- Young Hollywood – celebrity-focused programs
- Tastemade – food adventure, cooking programs and a few city guides
This seems another step in preparation for the rumored launch of a video streaming service and likely a newer model of Apple TV sometime this summer. On March 16 the Wall Street Journal reported that Apple would announce a TV subscription service with at least 25 channels and with competitive pricing. Of course, at this point all is just speculation.
