    Are there any cloud services available yet on ATV4? I'm looking for a way to upload video files to the cloud and stream/download them on my Apple TV. Obviously, there's always a way to download to my iPhone/iPad and airplay from there but I prefer a "real" ATV4 app.
    Cheers.

    Right now the only solution I was told to was to link my cloud service over WebDAV of course this only worked with less than a handful of apps, I wasn't able to get it working properly with infuse, the only app I've found that worked are FileExplorer or USB Disk Pro but I'm not a fan of either interface, I hope VLC can fix that problem, I heard that VLC will be available for the Apple TV 4 soon but I don't have an exact date. Hope I helped somewhat, here's a link for what to do if you have a Box account, I'm not sure if other cloud services support viewing over WebDAV

    Plex offers a feature called Cloud Sync for paid subscribers, it's $5 a month if you opt for a monthly subscription or $3.33 per month for an annual subscription. The also have a lifetime subscription, but I forget the price.

    Try the free version of Plex first, I suspect you might find the Cloud Sync feature unnecessary once you're streaming from your Mac/PC media library without the need for an iOS device or AirPlay. For home-use Plex comes in 2nd after Google's Chrome browser as my most-used software application. I subscribe to Plex Pass for some of the other features, I don't have a need for Cloud Sync.
