They haven't said anything either way on the subject, but we assume it will get the full experience. No reason not to really.

In the tvOS dev forums an Apple person replied to say it will be updated to match the retail version. They did not specify when it would be update though to get the App Store and other stock apps.

They have actually said on the developer forums that there will be an update to bring the dev kit devices up to parity with the release version. No word on when though. All us developers were assuming it would be before the public launch, but they're cutting it close :) so that assumption on the time frame may be incorrect. But yes it will become equivalent to the release version eventually via a software update, we have been told.

i've been wondering about the time frame too - my best guess is an o/s upgrade will be available friday afternoon, so probably about 20-30 hours from the time i post this.

I must have missed that thread, although admittedly I've not been on much lately. Still, good to know for certain.

looks like if you have a dev kit you can search for apps but not download them. getting close!
