New Apple TV Apps:
- The Criterion Channel (free) – Streaming access to all the Criterion Collection has to offer…and a little bit more. Check out our full coverage.

Updated Apple TV Apps:
- NHL (free) – It’s only bug fixes and performance enhancements, but the playoffs started yesterday so it seems appropriate. LET’S GO ANYONE BUT PITTSBURGH!
- Tablo (free) – This OTV DVR for cord-cutters has been updated with support for automatic commercial skipping and an initial setup process for ethernet connections.
- See ‘N Say Underwater Animals ($1.99) – Like the Fisher-Price See ‘n Say you had as a toddler, but with mini-movies and fun facts. I wonder if it’ll get out of sync like that barn one always did.
