Apple TV's content lineup is expanding yet again today with two new channels for Major League Soccer and Disney Junior. For soccer fans, the new MLS app promises on-demand video highlights, game analysis, fantasy soccer advice, player profiles, league standings, and full episodes of MLS 36 and MLS Insider. And if you've got an MLS Live subscription, you'll be able to stream both live and archived regular season matches in their entirety. (Standard blackout rules apply, of course.) Plans start at $14.99 and can be purchased directly from Apple TV using your iTunes billing info.

As you'd expect, Disney Junior offers programming aimed at younger viewers and joins Disney's other channels that were added to Apple TV alongside Vevo and other new apps last month. Apple recently updated the Apple TV with support for AirPlay streaming from the cloud, and iPhones running iOS 7 can now set up the box with just a tap. As for new hardware, rumors indicate we may see the next revision of Apple TV sometime next month — Apple is also expected to unveil new iPads and iPods in the near future.
