Another great channel has made its way to the Apple TV. With National Geographic, users can view a number of shows and other content including “Wicked Tuna,” “The Big Picture with Kal Penn,” “Yukon Gold,” “Safari Live,” and more.
Like most other Apple TV channels, you’ll need to log-in with cable provider credentials to access most of the content. Without credentials, viewers can watch a limited amount of clips and other videos.
The channel is much like the Nat Geo TV app for the iPhone and iPad/iPad mini unveiled last fall. Shows are available to view on the app and Apple TV channel the day after airing on the network.
Apple is also expected to unveil the next-generation Apple TV at next week’s WWDC event in San Francisco. It is rumored to offer a true App Store, Siri support, and a faster A8 processor.
Just yesterday, a new report said the rumored Apple subscription TV service won’t be announced at the event. Because of money issues and technology, it could be later this year or even 2016 before that service arrives. As first reported in March, the service would offer 25 to 30 channels from big-name providers like ABC, CBS, Fox, and ESPN and cost subscribers $30 to $40 per month.
