While users in the US are today getting access to CBS Sports and USA Now on the Apple TV, Canadian users are being greeted today with two new channels from the big Canadian cable companies. Bell’s CraveTV and Rogers’ Shomi, two competitive on-demand TV services akin to Hulu in the US, are now accessible on Apple’s set-top box.

Bell made an official announcement today noting that the Apple TV app provides access to the entire CraveTV library for subscribers including popular shows HOMELAND, NURSE JACKIE, WEEDS, HAPPYISH, BOSCH, THE WIRE, SEINFELD, and more.

CraveTV is currently available to Bell subscribers for $4/month, while Rogers’ similar Shomi service is available for $8.99/month. Both of the services already offered iOS apps for iPhone and iPad on the App Store — Crave TV & Shomi.

While Canadian users don’t always get access to the same content at the same time as users in the US, they did gain CBS Sports today alongside the US.

Users in Germany and France are also reporting access to a new channel for TV network Arte (via .apfelpage.de):

Additionally, users in Australia are reporting the addition of FOX Sports and Hopster TV for kids has made its way to boxes in the United Kingdom.
