Apple today added several new apps to the Apple TV, including the previously reported Vevo music video channel. Other new additions include a dedicated app for The Weather Channel, an app for the Smithsonian Channel, as well as two Disney television apps: Disney Channel and Disney XD.

Vevo has issued a press release announcing its arrival on the Apple TV, noting that it brings access to the site’s library of 75,000 music videos.

Apple TV users are sure to recognize the intuitive and efficient design. VEVO viewers are able to quickly browse videos by featured artists including all of the latest premieres. VEVO includes multiple modes of discovery – you can watch on-demand videos from any genre or simply select any video that piques your interest. If you have something particular in mind, perform a search and we will surface what you’re looking for right at your fingertips.

The Weather Channel app offers current conditions and forecasts for a variety of locations, as well as access to featured stories and Weather Channel shows.

The Smithsonian Channel offers on-demand access to streams of full episodes from the television channel, while the Disney Channel and Disney XD apps offer live and on-demand access with authentication through select television providers. Currently supported providers for the Disney apps include AT&T U-verse, Charter, Comcast, Cox, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, and Verizon FiOS.

Does the Disney XD channel consist of Miley Cyrus twerking?
The only remaining services the Apple TV needs are Amazon Prime Instant Video and maybe an app store.

And STILL no Time Warner

Tim Cook needs to be fired

Not just for letting Roku beat them to it, but because of the big **** up that he allowed to happen today. Moron let Samsung beat them to the market with a SmartWatch.

He’s got to go for his incompetence. He is killing Apple!

There seriously should not be this much rage over a TV content deal.

I wish there was a way to hide unused/unwanted apps. I will never watch Disney, especially since I don’t have a cable subscription to log in for it.

You can hide them if you activate parental controls under general settings

I really like how we’ve seen new Apple TV Apps in the past couples months but it would be so much better if there was an App Store were you could download the apps you want and developers could be constantly updating them.
Apple is getting quick with these Apple TV updates. If only I watched TV.

Seriously though, it’s great to see. I’ve always thought that cheap little box powered by great software is the way to go, as opposed to making an all-in-one television set. Those rumors have seemed to die down quite a bit, though.

So I take it that the Weather and Smithsonian channels do not need a cable subscription?
Seeing More Attention going to Apple TV has been great. Still wish it was open to application developers…..

Hopefully this update fixes my constant AppleTV errors with Netflix in the past couple weeks. Getting tired of having to go to the MacMini to watch from web :/ .

This is great! I wish the companies who already stream online would join in (CNN as an example). All I need is Discovery/NatGeo and I’m sold.
Apple has got to be working on opening up the AppleTV to user-installable apps.

Then again, if they really were, they would have held onto these apps and announced them at the next media event.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her
    ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic
    but I had to tell someone!
