Is there any plan to add airplay with the addition of the Apple TV app? With the Samsung TVs it was added at the same time.

Re: Apple TV App Now Available on Roku!

Will this app work on older roku devices?

I have a Roku2 XD from 2013.

I don't see the Apple TV app on the channel store on my device or on my iphone's roku app. But I did find it on the web and "installed" it there.  After performing the Update Now function on my roku device, I still don't see the app.

Re: Apple TV App Now Available on Roku!

I have the older Roku 2 xd.  So do I need to purchase a newer Roku in order to watch Apple TV on my normal TV?  I have loaded it on my laptop but cannot see it on my TV.  

If I do buy a newer Roku, will I lose all my favorite movies?
