Its a shame really.. we are so nearly there.
Its so true that they favour other platforms and the AppleTV has been the lowest of the low for many years.
Almost on the other end of the scale.. we have the iOS / iPADOS app - this seems very well supported and is regularly updated - about once every couple of months or so.
So... once the TVOS app is sorted and its all rolled into one universal app (we can only hope common sense prevails here)... then from that point on we can hope that the TVOS app will get fresh updates as quickly as the iOS/iPADOS one (as its the same app).
This public release.. however... is taking way too long.
The build for the Irish app is 6.2.8 and was released on 24th August, it's been mainly bug fixes since I got the Apple TV this time last year with a lick of paint to the UI, not a single new feature. Whatever code branch this app is built has clearly been on maintenance mode since last year.
