I am thinking about getting an Apple TV. I already have Netflix and Amazon Prime accounts, and I understand that there are apps on the Apple TV that will give access to those. How do I get access to broadcast, and cable channels on the apple TV? Are there apps for that? Keep in mind I want everything to be legal and on the up and up. Thanks for your help!

There are many Apple TV apps for streaming services (e.g. PlayStation Vue, YouTube TV, etc.) that will replicate the functionality of a traditional cable subscription. Your best bet would be to try doing a search in the App store to see which ones are available and what their capabilities are.
If you want actual TV from antenna or cable, you need a network tuner in addition to your Apple TV which accepts a signal and makes it available on your computer network.
I bought an HDHomerun a while back which allows for four simultaneous streams for unencrypted channels. This combined with the Channels app on my Apple TV 4K worked very well. Behaves like a TV with time shifting, and supports my bluetooth speaker.
