In addition to adding a channel for premium TV service Showtime in the U.S. and other markets today, Apple has also rolled out two new apps for markets abroad. Starting today, Apple TV users in Sweden will get access to SVT Play, an on-demand video service run by broadcaster Sveriges Television that already had an iOS app equivalent

Another service rolling out to Apple TV users abroad today is a channel for Norwegian public broadcaster NRK. The company said today that the app offers 40,000 programs on-demand free to all users. A screenshot of the new app from NRK is above (on the right).
