Apple adds Apple TV apps from Yahoo and PBS

On December 2, 2013


Over the past few months Apple has quietly been adding more and more apps to their Apple TV, Yahoo and PBS are the latest to join the party.

Yahoo brings their new Yahoo Screen app to the Apple TV offering access to the vast library of video content offered on yahoo, as they state on their Tumblr site:

Yahoo Screen on Apple TV helps you quickly find all the great video Yahoo has to offer — Saturday Night Live, The Colbert Report, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, live news and events, music and original Yahoo programs — so you can enjoy on your big screen.


The PBS app on the other hand offers full-length episodes of some of the most popular shows from PBS such as “American Masters,” “Frontline,” and “Masterpiece.” According to PBS they will strive towards adding shows within 24 hours of airing on TV. Much like other PBS video apps, the Apple TV will also feature web-original videos and series created by PBS Digital Studios, in other words these will not be shown on local television.

It will be interesting to see what channels Apple will add in the future, is there a channel you would like to see on the device? Leave us a comment below.
