Apple has rolled out some new channel additions to the Apple TV set-top box this morning. Both FOX NOW and CNBC have joined the Apple TV lineup. Both channels appear to require a cable subscription to unlock the content within. However, some episodes and clips are available without providing subscription credentials.

The CNBC channel supports viewing live broadcasts from the business-focused station as well as viewing previously aired shows and content. The FOX NOW channel features popular shows from the network like American Idol, Glee, Family Guy, The Following, and more.

Specifically, FOX NOW will feature full episodes of returning FOX series the day after they air when authorized through supported TV provider subscriptions.

First season series episodes are available in full on an unlocked basis by all FOX NOW users.

For CNBC, video clips are available to non-cable subscribers, but on demand content and live streaming is restricted to subscribers of select TV providers including Comcast, AT&T, DirecTV, DISH, Verizon, and more.

In addition to today’s new channels, Apple TV is expected to gain FX NOW within the next 12 months, including The Simpsons catalog, as mentioned this week.
