[] Houston, Texas - Holiday Bells, the favorite Christmas handbells app for iPhone and iPad, is now available for Apple TV. Holiday Bells has been on iOS since 2008, offering users "a fun and interactive Christmas musical experience" by playing their favorite holiday songs on the handbells. The app has now been brought to the big screen on the Apple TV. Holiday Bells for TV features these 19 classic Christmas songs:

* 12 Days of Christmas
* Angels We Have Heard On High
* Auld Lang Syne
* Away In A Manger
* Deck The Halls
* God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
* Good King Wenceslas
* I Saw Three Ships
* Jingle Bells

* O Holy Night
* Oh Christmas Tree
* Oh Come All Ye Faithful
* Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem
* Silent Night
* The First Noel
* Up On The Housetop
* We Three Kings Of Orient Are
* We Wish You A Merry Christmas

The app is very easy to use on the Apple TV. Scroll the song list to choose a song to play, then shake the remote to ring the bells. Or press PLAY on the Siri Remote and the app will automatically play the song for you. Pressing PLAY from the song list screen will auto-play all the songs in random order.

Holiday Bells for TV features new, professionally recorded handbell sounds. "I wanted to update the bells so they would sound good on the larger speakers of a TV or home audio system," says app developer Kira Hamilton. "I met with Keith Chuvala of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, and we recorded the new bell sounds using the Gloria Dei Celebration Ringers' handbell set. So the sounds you hear in Holiday Bells for TV are real handbells."

With beautiful full-screen HD graphics, and the added bonus of softly falling snow in the background, Holiday Bells is as much a delight to look at as it is to play and listen to.

Pricing and Availability:
Holiday Bells for TV is available for $2.99 (USD) from the Apple TV App Store. More info, screenshots, and lyrics to all of the Christmas songs can be found at Holiday Bells's official website.
