    So I know Bluetooth 4.0 on Apple TV is to connect the remote for the TV, however will that also support connecting a pair of wireless headphones to the new Apple TV for private listening ?
    would be cool to have this feature like you have on Roku3 today with plug-in jack on remote or with Shield remote as well.

    Any one aware of this ?

    This is what I am looking for as well.

    We have two Apple TV's and I will buy a third when it outputs Bluetooth audio.

    It looks like Bluetooth headphones will indeed be supported on the new Apple TV. There is mention of it in the tvOS Developer Library. See Known Issues: https://developer.apple.com/library...9.0/index.html#//apple_ref/doc/uid/TP40016575

    Def. good news. Would be neat too if you could connect headphones to the lightning port of the remote.

    Looking at known issues under Bluetooth and I notice....

    Bluetooth game controllers paired with a Mac are able to control the Apple TV Simulator via UIKit. The Game Controller framework is not supported in the Apple TV Simulator in this beta.

    Does this mean third party controllers will be supported? Maybe even PS3 controllers?
