Apple has updated the Apple TV today with a new channel for Sports Illustrated's 120 SPORTS network. 120 SPORTS was launched last year on iPhone, iPad and other platforms as a streaming platform for major sports leagues, including the MLB, NHL, NBA, PGA TOUR, Nascar and leading college divisions. The digital-only network offers 76 hours of live content and more than 1,200 on-demand video clips each week.

The 120 SPORTS channel provides sports fans with a collection of recent in-game highlights and other video content through the built-in Catch-Up and Timeline modes. Catch-Up provides a curated stream of the latest videos pertaining to trending sports topics, while Timeline allows users to watch the live 120 SPORTS stream and videos in reverse chronological order.

“With this latest launch, we are happy to provide our fans with a new platform to experience 120 Sports,” said 120 Sports president Jason Coyle. “We will continue to explore even more ways to deliver up-to-the-minute sports news to our current fans and new audiences, when and where they want it.”

MacRumors can confirm that 120 SPORTS was added to the third-generation Apple TV, although the channel has yet to appear on the second-generation set-top box.

The new channel arrives just a few weeks after the Apple TV was refreshed with Tennis Channel Everywhere, providing access to live court streaming and other on-demand coverage. Australian viewers were also treated to a new channel for Cricket.com.au earlier this month. Apple TV's existing sports channels include WatchESPN, MLB.TV Premium, NFL Now, NHL GameCenter, MLS Live, WWE Network, Red Bull TV, Willow and UFC.TV.

No reason to complain about another app being available.

It's easy enough to hide if you don't want it.

It's no better or worse that hundreds of channels that are available via trad cable/sat.

What surprises me is that it seems like some people won't be happy until the AppleTV is literally a trad cable box.

Even tho i won't watch it I'm always glad to see them add to it.

Still waiting for the CW channel to be added. It was announced in May 2013 and is still a no show... :confused:

...and we still don't have any way to organize all these icons?

I realize this is kind of a "First-world Problem", but by now shouldn't we have a better method for organizing all these icons, beyond turning them off in the Settings, and using the clunky click-and-hold trick to nudge the icons around?

Shouldn't we be able to make folders or something, maybe with the iOS Remote app?

Whoop! Another channel for the United World of America!

Seriously though, what about the rest of the world? All these new channels are useless and hold no interest to the majority of the world. For example, the UK is a huge market so what about deals with BBC iPlayer or other major channels?

Question... Do these US only channels show up on your Apple TV automatically?

Take that up with BBC. It seems they don't want to support Apple TV.

Isn't that something you should take up with the BBC?
