In addition to the Apple Events channel for viewing the WWDC keynote returning last night, Apple TV has added a NatGeo TV station from the National Geographic Channel and Nat Geo Wild channel. Apple’s latest channel includes next day full episodes of shows and documentaries covering science, history, culture, and more.

The new NatGeo TV channel on Apple TV includes clips you can watch for free, but the app does require signing in with an active cable subscription to unlock the full experience including viewing full episodes the day after they air.

The new channel is organized by sections including Featured, Shows, Categories, and Settings. Categories are numerous and include sections like Adventure, Animals, History, People, Science, Technology, Travel, and more. Even without a cable subscription, Apple TV users can view digital exclusives and more content for free. The new channel looks to be on par with the NatGeo TV app released for iPhone and iPad last fall.

The new channel should appear automatically after some time, or you can restart your Apple TV from the Settings channel to manually refresh and add it. If you decide you want to “remove” the channel, catch up on your How-To tutorial for rearranging and personalizing your Apple TV channels.
