Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has added five applications to Apple TV. These apps include Disney, the Weather Channel, the Smithsonian Channel, and Vevo. Some of these apps are free, but the others offer on-demand programming.
Two of the apps are from Disney, which includes the Disney Channel and Disney XD. These apps can be used by pay TV subscribers whose providers have partnerships with Disney. If you have TV from Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, or Dish, then the Disney apps with linear programming will not work for you.
The Disney apps are the only ones that have live versions of the pay TV channels. The Vevo Apple TV app supports a live version of the service.
The Smithsonian Channel app has on-demand clips, just like the Weather Channel app.
