Apple TV App (Service) and Roku

Jump to solution
Hey all, I recall hearing that Apple's Streaming service, and video app will be coming to Roku at some point.  I haven't heard any updates, and I just did a search to see if there were any.  All I found was the original article I read a few months back.  I was curious  If the service has launched on Roku yet.  I haven't done a search from the Roku store, as I'm not sure what exactly to search for at this point.  I do know that both my Apple TV(S) and iOS devices, have the updated TV App, and was curious if anyone here had any additional information on the Roku, and third party TV / streaming box support.

Thanks

Thanks Danny, I'll keep an eye out there, as well as Apple's news, which is where I found out about it initially.

Hi TannerD, Thanks for the heads up.  I installed the Chanel last night on both Roku Units and works perfectly,  Was able to log in using the QR code on screen, and my iPhone's camera app.

 

So far looks and acts identically to my physical Apple TV boxes.  However, it is nice to have more content in one device..  Also a heads up, have received the latest 9.2 update to both Roku units, and things have been working perfectly.  Have a great day!

This morning I successfully added Apple TV to my Roku Ultra (OS 9.1), however, it did not automatically appear on my Roku 4 (OS 9.2).

In fact, I can't even find it in the channel store on the Roku 4 -- is this app restricted to Ultra HD only?  My Roku 4 is connected to an HD receiver, but it is not Ultra HD. 

Thanks in advance for any advice on this.

Hi Bill,  I can't speak for Roku 4 owners, as I don't own a Roku 4.  I have a 2017, and 2018 Roku Ultra, which is the same hardware, but the newer one came with the JBL earbuds. Anyway for me, I found the AppleTV channel under new and notable in the channel store.  As long as you have OS 9.2, you should be OK.  I haven't heard any other requirements but that.  One thing you might check is to see if you have the latest 9.2 build in software update under SettingsSmiley FrustratedystemSmiley Frustratedoftware Update.  I had 2 different builds pull down.  The first only installed on the 2018 unit, the second one, installed on both.

The correct build number should be: 9.2.0 build 4106.  Hope this helps.

I saw from the Roku Support Web Site, that the Apple TV app is not available on the Roku 4 -- I'm a bit surprised by this.
