Major League Soccer now has a channel on the Apple TV, complete with free highlight videos from every team, as well as episodes of MLS 36 and MLS Insider. If you’re paying $14.99 a month for a MLS Live subscription, you can also get access to live streaming of MLS games on your Apple TV. Sadly, you’ll only be able to watch the Sounders if you’ve left the Seattle area, since MLS Live blacks out games from a local team.
[Updated to clarify MLS Live's restriction on watching local games.]
In addition, Disney Junior, Disney’s channel targeted at kids between 3 and 9 years old, now has a home in the Apple TV lineup. You’ll need an existing cable subscription in order to get access to Disney’s offerings, though.
If you’re planning on picking up a new Apple TV, you can now set it up with a single tap from an iOS 7 device. Apple’s set-top box will grab the wi-fi SSID and password from your iPhone or iPad and automatically set itself up on your home network.
