Apple TV owners can now tune in to Game of Thrones or follow their favorite sports teams. Apple announced today that it has now added HBO Go and WatchESPN to its list of content providers.
HBO Go and WatchESPN are some of the most popular iOS apps, so it makes sense that the company would want to add them on as content providers. The channels are only available to subscribers of participating television providers. Apple has also added Sky News, Crunchyroll and Qello, which offer live news, sports and current TV programming.
“We continue to offer Apple TV users great new programming options, combined with access to all of the incredible content they can purchase from the iTunes Store,” said Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services.
WatchESPN provides access to ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN3 and ESPN Buzzer Beater/Goal Line for those who receive ESPN’s networks as part of their video subscription from affiliated providers.
Besides streamed content, Apple TV users can also choose from more than 60,000 movies and 230,000 TV episodes, as well as music from the iTunes store.
