Apple TV gets ABC News, PBS Kids, More

Apple pushed out more channels to Apple TV, giving users access to ABC News, PBS Kids, Willow TV, and AOL On on Tuesday. Like other channel updates, Apple quietly pushed the new content out to users without any need to run updaters or reboot.

The ABC News channel offers current news and clips from the network's news and information-related programming, plus content from nine major affiliates around the country. ABC brought entertainment programming to Apple TV late last year through its Watch ABC channel.

Unfortunately, much of the new content requires a cable subscription, so it doesn't do much to help viewers hoping to trim down their monthly bills by cutting the cable cord.
