    It's a great app, the one I used most for news on my ATV.

    Just what I'm thinking when I heard about Paris Attack: Why don't we have an app that collected all news source for us.
    Did you have France24 live feed in English?

    Next time I'm able to wrestle my Apple TV control away from my son I will download this.

    We do offer France24 English. You can 'favorite' the source to see more videos from them. We don't support live feeds right now, but it's definitely something we'd like to have in the future. Stay tuned!

    We currently provide more than 100 channels. There are more mainstream news outlets like CBS News, CNN, ABC News etc to the more 'niche' like The Young Turks and Vice News. You will get videos based on the sources you favorite.

    I downloaded it this morning and I was blown away. It's really great. I bumped Hulu and to put it in one of the top spots.

    Would be nice if there were a way to remove sources from 'My Headlines', like Newsy and Fox News. I've marked favorite sources in Settings, but that doesn't remove the sources I don't want.

    You can watch France24 in English, French and Arabic on YouTube, or live stream any of those via Airplay to your AppleTV IN addition to watching on you iPad or iPhone. What we need is a France24 AppleTV app.
