As you all may already know, the new Apple TV (fourth generation) finally came with an App Store and users have access to all content channels they want to install. In the old ones, it was Apple itself that controlled it all.
Now, Apple has published a support article that lists * all * Apple TV content providers including its second and third generations.
In each of them, Apple identifies whether the channel is available worldwide, only in the United States or in certain countries. Esporte Interativo is the only exclusive in Brazil, but we also have access to some others that are not available everywhere, such as ABC News, Vevo and YouTube itself. On the other hand, it is a pity that we are one of the few places that do not have access to the UFC channel.
In a related note, we recently reported that the CBS CEO stated that Apple had put its rumored new service on streaming video “in hold“. For today it was ESPN President John Skipper, speaking to the Wall Street Journal He also confirmed that he had conversations with Apple and that he believes in the potential of her solution.
According to Skipper, Apple is “frustrated” that it has so far failed to reach consensus with content providers / suppliers for this new service.

In another related note, the Re / code reported today that Ben Keighran designer who came from Chomp and worked deeply on the new Apple TV (and tvOS) is leaving the company to focus on a new project completely independently.
Keighran was not, however, at the high end of Apple. He responded to Bill Bachman, who manages Apple's media apps; he responds to Robert Kondrk, vice president of content at iTunes; and this one answers Eddy Cue, senior vice president of software and internet services.
The designer commented that the decision to leave Apple was "difficult".
