Apple TV owners based in Germany can now enjoy streaming both an NHL channel and a Vevo channel, according to the German language website Macerkopf. Both channels seem to have reached set-top boxes in Deutschland on Oct. 1, the website explains, and users need only boot up their Apple TV in order to access both NHL and Vevo. As a reminder, NHL and Vevo reached U.S. Apple TVs in October 2011 and August 2013, respectively. The former service allows NHL GameCenter subscribers to watch live National Hockey League games on the set-top box, while Vevo provides users with an on-demand music video library. More than 75,000 music videos are available to stream in high definition using Vevo. In the United States, Major League Soccer (MLS) and Disney Junior channels reached Apple TVs towards the end of last month, and ahead of this Apple launched, then pulled, then relaunched its Apple TV 6.0 software update. Apple TV 6.0 adds support for iTunes Radio, iCloud-powered AirPlay, Bluetooth 4.0, and more. Though a refreshed Apple TV is expected to launch in the coming months, the flurry of new content to have reached Apple's set-top box over the past year could rather seem indicative of a forthcoming "Apple HDTV" product. The anticipated Apple television has reportedly been in the works for some time, and earlier this year saw Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook and content boss Eddy Cue make a trip to Allen & Company’s Sun Valley Conference, at which the so-called “King of Cable” Liberty Media Corp. Chairman John Malone was present. We'll keep you updated with further information as we receive it.
