Just a day after the last Apple TV channel refresh, CNNgo has added more news content to the set-top box lineup. The new channel appears to require an active cable subscription to view live content, but on demand news content is available without authenticating a subscription. This marks the first time content from CNN has been available on the Apple TV.

CNNgo joins ABC News, Bloomberg TV, CBS News, CNBC, PBS, Sky News, and WSJ Live in providing news content on the Apple TV in the United States.

The channel is organized by the Featured front page, Live TV for cable subscribers, Shows for seeing everything CNN offers, and Must See for viewing news by categories like politics and entertainment as well as top news and many other sections.

The Live section of CNNgo also includes a multi-hour schedule of upcoming broadcasts.

Supported cable providers at launch include AT&T, Cox, DirecTV, Dish, Verizon and a long list of others. Viewers can view on-demand videos available on CNNgo without authenticating a subscription, although live news requires activation.

The CNNgo channel on Apple TV is similar to the video content including live news after activation made available on the CNN app for iPhone and iPad.

CNNgo joins the Apple TV channel lineup just one day after TED, Tastemakers, and Young Hollywood apps launched as content options.
