UFC.TV offers access to a variety of Ultimate Fighting Championship content, including free and paid video. Users can subscribe to the service's Fight Pass premium offering with a 6-month membership priced at $54.99 or a 12-month membership at $99.99. Users can also access archived pay-per-view content, although some pay-per-view content is unavailable in many countries due to regional restrictions.

The Scene offers digital shorts from a variety of Condé Nast media brands and third-party partners, including ABC News, Epicurious, Forbes, GQ, PBS, The New Yorker, The Weather Channel, Vogue, and more. All content is available free of charge.

Fusion is a joint venture between Disney-ABC and Univision, offering a variety of content including news, pop culture, and lifestyle. Finally, Dailymotion offers access to the popular site's library of videos from premium brands and regular users alike.

All four channels are available now, with Apple calling out each of the new channels with a "New" flag on the main screen icons. Country restrictions may, however, limit where some of these new channels can be seen.

Good job I sold my ATVs and swapped them for Amazon Fire TVs a few weeks ago.

This dripping of American channels is useless to us in the UK.

Never looked back.

Looks like they are ramping up the content in readiness for a "Retina TV" to be launched in the next 12 months.

No, it actually doesn't look like that at all.

What does more channels available on the Apple TV, something that happens about once every month or two these days, have anything at all to do with Apple launching a so-called "Retina TV"? And why in the next 12 months?

Your logical fallacy is false cause (https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/false-cause) (along with false conclusion).

Amazon Fire TV does.
And does it well! I cut the cable cord two years ago, and I cut the iTunes cord last month. I really wish I didn't have to, but Apple has made it pretty clear they're not interested in the living room anymore, and Amazon appears to be doing everything right in this arena now.

Far be it from me to tell Apple what they should do, but this seems like a huge strategic misstep to me. I've been a registered iOS developer for years now, but the Amazon SDK (and consequently -- gasp -- the Android SDK) looks more promising for long-term projects that aren't tied to phones or tablets now.

I REALLY wish Apple hadn't missed the ball on this one, but at this point, it's obvious they have. All they needed to compete was a TV App Store, and they've had YEARS to get one together. Amazon and Google did it in much less time -- and they've done it very well, too.

Yeah this thing needs an App Store badly. I really wonder what's in store for Apple TV 3.0
Apple TV 3.0 came out more than two years ago. What's "in store" appears to be more icons we can hide.
