    The apps makes the 4th gen in a different league amongst Apple TV revisions.

    Hi. I am currently using an MXQ android box however much to my dismay, video streaming apps like Netflix, iWantv and Hooq are not compatible with the device when they are the mere purpose why I purchased the product.

    I bought the device at Lazada hence no testing took place, hence charge to experience.

    With this, I am planning to get an Apple TV instead after the disappointing experience with my Android box.

    I wish to know if streaming apps like Netflix, iWant TV and Hooq are compatible and run in Apple TV?

    As I am planning to get one next month. Your inputs are greatly appreciated!

    If you get the 3rd gen, you will get netflix as a channel.

    If you get the 4th gen, you can install streaming apps.

    Thanks for the response.
    I was scouting on diff Authorized resellers to compatible apps in Apple TV app store PH however none of them can answer my inquiry :(

    To Apple TV 4th Gen owners, may I ask if iwanTV, HOOQ and iFlix are available in the Apple TV App Store PH, and compatible to Apple TV 4th gen?

    thanks a lot!

    With your list, only Netflx applies.

    But you can easily airplay whatever you are watching on HOOQ, iFlix and probably iWanTV from your iPhone onto the Apple TV.

    Anybody experiencing Netflix app shutdowns? When I first got the unit, I registered for the free 1month trial. I did not renew when it expired. After a couple of months, my sister subscribed to a 3 screen plan. I entered her details to my Apple TV but the app wont seem to let me watch in peace. It would usually shutdown after 10-15mins. I tried to delete/reinstall the app for nothing seems to work. I'm doing the long cut where I mirror by iPhone/iPad to be able to watch in the big screen.

    If it works fine on your phone, then it must be your Apple TV. Try updating your unit's tvOS.
