    I am no longer able to mirror iflix in my Apple TV. Anyone else having the same problems? I hope iflix did not intentionally blocked it.

    Iflix doesn’t support mirroring.

    Mm...Tidal.com expands to AppleTV (and Android TV). Available at the App store since December 20. Installed it on my ATV (4th gen) and my subscription works. Works great if your ATV is hooked up to a decent speaker set-up (or a soundbar at the very least).

    what sort of problems? I used mine last night with Apple TV & it worked fine. It was very buggy though during the holidays. some shows wouldn't play or would freeze, but it's been fine every since.

    It won't run and I get an error message. I tried reinstalling the all already. Will post a screenshot soon.

    In my experience, The Prime Video requires more speed / bandwidth than the Netflix App.That's just the way it is. I've been using both since it became available with Getfilx.

    It works when I restart the ATV. It works with all my other devices, Mac mini, MBPr, PC and Kindle Fire. It's only on ATV that I need to restart to make it work.

    That and there's no dedicated CDN (content delivery network) in PH unlike Netflix and YouTube (PLDT/Globe is cocky about their broadband speed because of this). Basically you need to get Amazon's content from offshore servers while you watch Trending YouTube videos on PLDT's WAN.

    Best PLDT fibr can do is 1080p on a weekday evening. 4K during morning/afternoons. Quality is much nicer though.

    Hi,

    Anybody knows a way to watch iFlix on ATV4? I think it used to be allowed to mirror the iPhone and then play iFlix, now, it seems not the case anymore. It closes every time.

    Thanks!

    I am having the same issue. I First thought it was because of the iPhone X but tested with iPad and get the same issue.

    That's not the problem. Amazon Prime Video works perfectly on my NVIDIA Shield TV.

    The app won't run. I get an error message. I reinstalled it several times already.

    A pleasant surprise re the 4K - it has good synergy with the interface of my Sony 4K tv and my iPhone X.

    Specifically, the tv remote can control the Apple TV quite well. When I click Sleep Now on the Apple device, it also turns the TV off. The iPhone turns both the Apple TV and the Sony on and off through the control center. Love it when gadgets work well with each other.

    The best part? Demonstrating all this to my wife, to further justify my purchases. (y)

    It's HDMI-CEC protocol. Chromecast + Google Home can do this too and it's kinda magical. "OK, Google, play <a music video>" and Chromecast will turn on your TV and play the video.

    You can actually just toss the SONY remote and use the ATV remote for better voice search and scrolling. Just press the TV icon on the remote to turn on and press and hold to turn off (sleep) Apple TV and TV at the same time.

    Last night I turned on my ATV 4K so that my wife and I could watch some shows but we ended up watching the Aerial screensaver for half an hour. That thing’s hypnotic haha.

    ^ Agreed! My favorite is the view of an airport from above.

    Same issue here, using Apple TV 4K, works fine on Mac and IPhone but not on Apple TV. I'm using Getflix SmartDNS to watch geo-restricted apps and I am accessing using USARegion and using a US Prime account.
