Periscope, Watch Disney and NBC Apps Launch On the New Apple TV

Apple’s newly-released Apple TV is already getting a lot of support from TV networks and other publishers: Both ABC and NBC announced a number of new apps for the device Friday. The device’s new app store is also featuring video and entertainment apps from internet-native publishers like Periscope.

Twitter’s social live streaming service officially announced support for the new Apple TV with a tweet Friday.

NBC said Friday that it is launching four new apps on the device: NBC, USA Now, NBC Sports Live Extra, CNBC and NBC News apps will offer on-demand content from the respective networks, and the NBC Sports Live Extra and CNBC apps will even feature a live feed. However, some of the content will only be available to users who authenticate with their pay TV credentials.

ABC isn’t quite ready to release a new ABC Watch app for the device, but the broadcaster released three new apps for younger viewers:  WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney XD and WATCH Disney Junior all have been optimized for the new platform, and offer access to full episodes from these networks. Viewers who authenticate will be able to watch live feeds as well as exclusive content. ABC itself will continue to be available on the device with its existing app, which is slated for a relaunch in 2016.

Some of the other entertainment apps on Apple TV include Funny Or Die, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Showtime, NBA League Pass, MLB.TV Premium, CNN Go, PBS, PBS Kids, NHL Gamecenter, USA Now, YouTube, Plex as well as Apple’s own Apple Music subscription service and iTunes video store.
