Syfy Now’s lineup includes drama “The Magicians,” thriller “12 Monkeys” and the network’s long-running reality show “Face Off.” The E! Now app features fan-favorite “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” and other unscripted fare including “Botched,” “#RichKids of Beverly Hills,” Caitlyn Jenner’s “I Am Cait” with and “WAGS” (available May 27). Episodes of E!’s “The Royals” will be available later this year.

Other NBCU networks available on Apple TV include NBC, USA, NBCSN and CNBC.

The launch is the latest “TV Everywhere” expansion by the Peacock, a strategy adopted by the pay-TV biz to encourage consumers to keep their television subscriptions amid an ongoing bloom of video content available across myriad Internet devices.
