If that is the case, why would the Spectrum App work with AppleTV?
Programmed in a completely different language, quite possibly by different programmers. You can't compare apps on different platforms, even if they look identical. Apple TV runs on a version of the iPhone OS, while the Roku OS is a highly modified version of Linux, and all programming is done with something called BrightScript. There's no compatibility between the two, so a completely different app.
