Roku 4 and apple tv

With the 4K support offered by the roku 4 I had expected the Apple tv on both roku ultra and 4's  if it didn't work on the 2 or 3 that's because they won't have 4K but sience Movies anywhere,HBO,vudu and most everything else is working with all the ROKU players back to the 2 it's just too bad we can't have it on all roku players more substantial subscription base for Apple tv+ if it were avaible on more devices and a show of good faith in the roku as the first device to get it!

Re: Roku 4 and apple tv

You have to ask Apple about it. They are the ones that determine which Roku devices are supported. There's nothing Roku can do about it. It's the same with all channels. Only the channel developer can control the devices and geographical locations that their channel will work with.

Re: Roku 4 and apple tv

I too have a Roku 2, Roku 3, and Roku 4, as well as a Roku TV.  The only device that does not have the Apple TV+ available is the 4...  probably some Apple support to 1080p, but not 4K without support to HDR is my theory.... that supported 4K devices may require HDR - right now, a key TV room in my house has TiVO bolt, Roku 4, and Sony 4K TV, receiver, and BR video player....  nothing that supports Apple TV+.  Well, Winter (Black Friday and Christmas) is coming!

Re: Roku 4 and apple tv

Hard to call your “service “ a service if you’re not on everything Disney + is on the Roku 4 has Disney but not apple!

 

It’s a bit broken anyway because on an apple device it shows I own dr who,futurerama and Star Trek discovery season 1-2 but the app only shows dr who in my tv library if I go to watch now I can find it and the splash screen content has is missing with the iTunes extras content.

 

Apple needs to fix the app and put it on everything Disney plus is on or don’t call it a @“service “ .
