Apple TV adds Major League Soccer, Disney Junior

A couple of new channels have been added to the Apple TV - you can now watch Major League Soccer (MLS) games and highlights, as well as content from Disney Junior - Disney's network aimed at younger viewers.

All viewers of the MLS channel get free on-demand video highlights, analysis, fantasy soccer advice and player profiles. Full episodes of MLS 36 and MLS Insider are also provided, along with videos created by individual MLS clubs. You'll need an MLS Live subscription - $14.99 per month - for live streaming and archived games.

Disney Junior is squarely aimed at the preschool and elementary school set, with programming for kids ages 3-9. Kids can watch episodes of Handy Manny, Octonauts, Special Agent Oso and more. As with other Disney channels, access is restricted to cable and dish subscribers who can verify their identity using a verification system that launches before the channel is unlocked.

Are either of these channels interesting for you? Would you prefer to see something else? Let me know in the comments.
