    I'm wondering if there is a way to load user accounts when booting the apple tv4. I want to be able to choose among two accounts when I start the apple tv. The two accounts will have different sets of apps. perhaps by jail breaking? Thank you

    I asked this a few weeks ago, apparently it is not an option (by default)

    The reasoning behind this is the Apple TV is not meant to be booted up for usage. It is always "on".

    It's not a computer that you boot and re-boot.

    You can switch accounts in the preferences.

    You can switch between iTunes accounts fine but any downloaded apps will remain available for all.
    The only things that will be account specific are iTunes Movies/TV shows, Music purchases and Apple Music.
    Gamecenter also needs to be logged out of and signed in separately between users.

    Maybe the term User Profiles like in NETFLIX would be helpful. There needs to be a global watch list based on my profile and much more.
