CNBC and Fox Now on Apple TV (If You Subscribe)
Apple TV boasts two new additions to its content library, welcoming TV Everywhere apps for CNBC and Fox into its fold.
CNBC’s TV Everywhere app will bring live “Business Day” programming from the network, as well as on-demand access to shows like “American Greed” and “Restaurant Startup.” Though executives on the CNBC end suggest the importance of bringing the channel’s content to viewers “anytime, anywhere,” the app, like others in the TVE category, still requires a subscription through cable, satellite, and telco services in order to fully operate.
Fox Now also requires this kind of subscription for ability to view its videos on Apple TV. These include full episodes of shows like “New Girl,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” and “Glee” — available just one day after they air on television.
Comcast’s Xfinity, DirectTV, Dish, Cablevision’s Optimum TV, RCN, and Verizon FiOs are among the services that support subscription to TVE versions of CNBC and Fox.
CNBC and Fox join AOL Video, ABC News, Red Bull TV, Crackle, Yahoo, and more on Apple TV, making the on demand viewing service look increasingly more like a all-in-one for connected TV viewers’ needs (if you can call them “needs”).Tags: ABC News, AOL Video, apple tv, business day, CNBC, Comcast, Crackle, DirectTV, Dish, Fox, fox now, NBC Universal, optimum, RCN, red bull tv, TV Everywhere, verizon, Yahoo!
