Well, sort of:
Apple on Wednesday updated one of my favorite and most used products—Apple TV. In a software update released today, Apple added a number of new “channels” to the including including HBO GO and WatchESPN.
According to Apple HBO GO gives users unlimited access to HBO programming, including bonus features and special behind-the-scenes extras. You will need an HBO subscription through your television provider.
I have to go through my cable company? No, sorry — not gonna do it.
All of these Apple TV channel/app thingies should be stand-alone and available without having to go through a third party.
