VEVO music channel could be on the Apple TV as early as this week

A report first surfaced suggesting VEVO was in development for the Apple TV a couple of weeks ago, but now it seems the deal is possibly done. A new report in the Wall Street Journal suggests that VEVO TV may appear as soon as this week on the Apple TV, along with apps for other platforms such as Samsung Smart TV and PS3.

The application will reportedly offer access to on-demand music videos, as well as a 24-hour a day channel of original content. Also on the cards for VEVO TV is a dedicated live music channel, which may launch later on this year. TV connected devices provides a new advertising revenue model for a service like VEVO, so what we may end up with is a pretty regular feeling music video channel, just like those we get on Cable TV. Would you watch VEVO music videos on your Apple TV?

VEVO music channel could be on the Apple TV as early as this week


"Would you watch VEVO music videos on your Apple TV?"

I already do, on my Roku. Seems like half the new stuff we get on Apple TV is stuff that Roku has had for ages. Last month it was HBO Go and Crunchyroll, this month it's VEVO, maybe next month it'll finally be Pandora?

With iTunes Radio coming, I doubt we are ever going to see Pandora on the AppleTV. Luckily, AirPlaying Pandora to my ATV works just as well, and has the added bonus of letting me thumbs up/down/skip from anywhere in the house.

Yes, I would. I hate the fact that MTV no longer shows music videos (nor does MTV2, VH1, CMT, no one!). I enjoy watching music videos, because I am interested to see how other people interpret songs. Also, I like to see the lyrical artistry brought to life; I feel like it brings another dimension to the song.
