Apple TV gets Watch ABC, Crackle, and Bloomberg and more

Apple TV gets Watch ABC, Crackle, and Bloomberg and more

Apple has added several content channels to the Apple TV, including Watch ABC, Crackle, and Bloomberg. Crackle, a Sony service, lets you watch a number of TV shows and movies without a subscription. Watch ABC, meanwhile requires you to register your cable provider before you can watch full episodes. Currently, customers with AT&T U-verse, Charter, Comcast XFINITY, Cox, Google Fiber, Midcontinent Communications, Optimum, and Verizon FiOS can all be verified.

Bloomberg, in addition to its on demand video, is yet another move by the Apple TV into live content. Selecting Live TV from the rotating carousel of options or the Live TV tab will let you watch the program currently airing on the channel live. There is also a wide selection of on demand video as well.

Apple also added KORTV, a Korean content provider. This channel provides access to a number of Korean programs, and you can pay $5.99 for even more content.

We now also have some insight into how Apple TV apps are built. The developers behind the Bloomberg app said that they were given an SDK by Apple, which they then used to build an app for the Apple TV on top of Bloomberg’s backend infrastructure in about five weeks. You can read the whole article over at 9to5Mac.

The channels should appear on your Apple TV soon, and do not require a software update.

Nokia’s Lumia 525 upgrades its bestselling Windows Phone with more memory

Posted by on December 1, 2013 at 2:09 pm | Filled Under: Uncategorized| No comments

Nokia’s Lumia 525 popped up in a Chinese regulatory filing earlier this month, but now we have official information about this new budget Windows Phone 8 device. In lieu of fanfare or a Middle Eastern press event, it’s appeared via a YouTube video (embedded after the break) and a simple product page. Appearing as a successor to the popular Lumia 520, the 525 keeps the swappable covers (orange, yellow or white) like previous Lumia models and the polycarbonate style-jacking iPhone 5c, while doubling the amount of RAM inside to 1GB. Just like the earlier model, it has a 4-inch screen, the 5MP rear camera is still without flash, microSD storage expansion, and it’s powered by a dual-core Qualcomm S4 processor. It will arrive with Nokia’s usual Lumia apps, but with that extra memory it can run more of them at once.

There’s no release information yet on the page yet, while the website only lists Africa, Middle East and Asia Pacific. However, Nokia has said it will not be coming to the US or the UK. Fortunately, Engadget Chinese reports the 525 and 526 have been announced for China Unicom and China Mobile, respectively, at an off-contract price of 1,099 yuan ($180 US), shipping in December. This pricing is in line with the 520, aligning this as the pay-as-you-go WP8 option it appears to be, but we’ll keep an eye out for domestic carrier release info just to be sure.
