Sorry but no. The apple tv is just like the roku, no inputs just an output. They can't communicate with each other, but they can communuicate to third party, your tv. Where each can be hook up to different hdmi input. And live happily ever after.

Wow.   I have a the Logitech elite remote and I just don't feel like reprogramming everything for a few shows I can get on regular tv. Of course I can stream from my computer I guess.

Many (most? all?) of the channel apps available on Roku are also available for Apple tv and can be installed to it.  If you want to add The Roku Channel, this is available from the Apple store: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/roku-channel-movies-live-tv/id1523753286
