Use Kodi on Apple TV




Tired of your Android friends telling you how their streamer is better because they can watch Kodi. Guess what, you can also easily install the latest version of Kodi media player along with any addons right on your Apple TV. Roku Owners can't but they have better porn channels.

This method works with any past generation Apple TV. Not sure if Apple changed anything yet on their new 4K model. 

Full Step-By-Step Instructions on how to install Kodi on any Generation Apple TV 




Watch IPTV M3U Playlists on Apple TV





Yes, you can enjoy using m3u playlists on your Apple TV.  There are thousands of Free live IPTV channels you can watch from all over the world using m3u streams. Once you download a m3u player from the iTunes store, it will let you easily watch these streams which can contain anything from free movies to free live cable TV channels.

A popular m3u player that works on Apple TV and other iOS devices is TV Streams. It is free for 5 Channels with ads, or you can pay a one time fee of $2.99 to turn off the ads and play unlimited channels.




Here is another alternative completely free m3u player for Apple TV






Both these apps work great with Pastebin where you can find m3u playlists. Be sure to read this article to learn how to find more m3u lists and even build your own custom playlists.




Cast and SideLoad Apps On Apple TV


You won't be able to get the same apps on an Apple TV that you can easily find on Android Media players, this does not mean you can't watch them.  You can, because just like Chromecast, Apple gives their users the same ability to easily cast content that can be found  and watched on an Apple iPhone or iPad using AirPlay from a web browser or other apps.

Android devices can also benefit from this by casting their favorite TV app right on over to an Apple TV and watch this content on their television.

This is not as easy on Android as it is from an iPhone or iPad because Apple likes to keep everything behind their walled garden. But it is still possible using a cool little work around and Apple's popular AirPlay function.

You will need the help of an app called double twist which lets you stream music and videos to your Apple TV from an Android phone or tablet. It only costs a couple of dollars and it is a one time fee.





Once installed, the double twist app can effectively send shows, movies and songs right to your Apple TV. This can let you use popular streaming apps on Android like Terrarium TV and watch the same content right on your Apple TV.
