TV app begins appearing on Apple TVs running tvOS beta in U.S., Canada

The TV app aimed at streamlining the Apple TV’s content discovery experience has begun appearing in the latest tvOS beta for some users in the U.S. and Canada. For those seeing the update, the Apple TV remote’s TV button now takes users to the TV app rather than the home screen. It’s still unclear whether the app’s appearance on Canadian Apple TVs is intentional, as Apple has previously said the feature would be U.S.-only. The app is clearly still a work in progress, with the most recent update cleaning up issues with fonts and menus displaying improperly, although the “Get Started” button on the welcome screen doesn’t yet do anything. The Canadian version also seems to lack access to features, with the “Store” screen showing no content and the app itself of course only providing access to iTunes movies and TV shows since other participating content apps are not available outside of the U.S.
