Apple TV Apps List - Find Out Which Apps Are Free and Which Cost Money

Over the past few years, Apple has been slowly but steadily adding new apps to the Apple TV's home screen. While a good handful of the apps are free, a large number require users to either have an existing cable subscription, or to pay a monthly subscription fee in order to access the app’s primary content. However, unlike the app listings in the Apple App Store, Apple TV apps have no visible labels differentiating the free apps from those requiring cable service or a monthly subscription fee. The following list of Apple TV apps sorts through each app’s price model, and helps you easily figure out which apps are free and which require some form of subscription fee or online activation.
