Channels 2.0 is a nice upgrade over the original version of the live TV tuning app that was released shortly after the 4th generation AppleTV hit the market last year. This new version offers a full channel grid in addition to the ability to pause and rewind live television thanks to a built in buffering feature.

This puts the app in line with the iPhone / iPad version we looked at recently (that review is in the master playlist linked above).

You will need an HDHomerun television tuner for this to work.
