Israel’s largest mobile carrier, Cellcom, has announced that it is the first in the country to bring a multi-channel TV service to Apple TV at no extra charge.

“We had a mission to change the TV market,” Cellcom Chief Executive Nir Sztern told a news conference. “This move enables clients to disconnect from the set-top box. We need to bring broadcast over IP (Internet protocol).”
