Apple TV Media Player Beta Version Now Available

Good news, Apple TV users! Streambox Media Player is coming soon to Apple TV, and we're looking for users to beta test the app before launch.

Streambox Media Player for Apple TV is an app designed to play out 4K/HDR over IP video streams from the Streambox family of encoders or Streambox Cloud Services.

Users can use the Media Player app to play out video streams, support Cloud/Session-based workflows, and view live content from any location with minimal latency. While the app is designed to be optimized on the second-generation Apple TV, it can run on past generations of the hardware.

The Media Player app for Apple TV is currently in the beta phase. If you are interested in becoming a beta tester for our new Apple TV app, please contact us at!

Other app features include:

  • HD, 2K, UHD, 4K
  • 8, 10 & 12-bit
  • HDR, 4:4:4, 4:2:2, 4:2:0 color
  • AAC and PCM Audio
  • Cloud & Cloud-based Sessions workflow
  • 128-bit encryption
  • Supports 20 video channels

(Please note: UHD/4K and HDR support requires second-generation Apple TV 4K.)
