Installing on Apple TV 4

kevinh@quickplay.com Mar 14, 2016 01:56PM EDT


I'm trying to figure out how to install a tvOS ipa onto an AppleTV 4. The only way I can see so far is to download the .ipa file onto a Macbook and then install it on the device using the Apple Configurator. Is there was way to install it directly onto an AppleTV from AppBlade?

Hey Kevin,

To push apps to an AppleTV over the air, the TV would need to be enrolled in MDM. In the past the recommended way to enroll an AppleTV device in MDM was to connect it to Configurator and push the MDM configuration profile to the device (in AppBlade, create a Device Pool and download its associated .mobileconfig file).

It may be possible to enroll an AppleTV in AppBlade MDM using a browser on the TV, but we have not yet tested this so it's just a theory at this point -- we don't have an AppleTV 4 handy to test with at the moment, so please share anything you discover.
