Apple TV Updated with Revamped Channel for Upcoming iTunes Festival at SXSW 2014

In preparation for this week's iTunes Festival at South by Southwest (SXSW) 2014, Apple has expanded its Apple TV lineup to include a revamped iTunes Festival channel that allows users to live stream the concert's shows as well as view lineups and artist information.

The channel showcases artists who will be performing at the festival such as Kendrick Lamar, Coldplay, and Keith Urban, complete with artist bios and concert showtimes. Direct iTunes links to artist albums are featured as well, along with full details on opening acts.

Apple also updated its iTunes Festival app for iOS last week, which introduced a new design and a revamped icon. Apple announced last month that it would be expanding its iTunes Festival to the U.S. for the first time, as five shows will be held from March 11-15 at the Moody Theater in Austin, Texas as a part of the film and music-focused SXSW event.

Gotta say I am kind of disappointed with Apple's choice in bands. A lot of SXSW is independent up and comers (with some big names mixed in), while Apple chose to feature a lineup of mostly huge stars (no disrespect to any of the performers).

Dammit, I read the first three words and got excited, only to have the feeling taken away like a football in the hands of Lucy, with me being Charlie Brown.

Apple TV is useless and has no apps.
Apple TV is bloated - it has too much.

Which is it? iHaters get together and decide before you look bad!

Yeah, why on Earth would anyone think for themselves and decide what they want to watch. Everyone should be satisfied with only what Apple offers and someone calling himself "Papasprite" on Apple Fanboards wants you to watch.

Fall in Line


I think you may have missed my point but at least you got my drift, I think.

I'm not entirely sure what your point is. I mean you're obviously mad at something but I can only assume it's a bit of a proxy to your annoyance at the current state of the Apple TV, so I forgive you.
