On Tuesday, Apple TV added two new channels to the mix. FOX NOW and CNBC are now available on the company’s “hobby” device. Both channels require a cable subscription to unlock full content. However, both offer a limited number of videos without a subscription. CNBC features a live stream of the financial channel, plus on-demand clips from news segments. Full episodes from the "Prime" original series are also available. FOX NOW includes on-demand access to a number of series including "24: Live Another Day," "Glee," and more. The FOX NOW channel shouldn't be confused with FX NOW. That channel, which will arrive on the Apple TV sometime in the coming months, will offer all 522 episodes of “The Simpsons” and other extra content. Also on Tuesday, the Apple TV also added TV2 Sumo, the online version of channel TV2 in Norway. The channel is only available in that country.
