    I have the actual file on my macbook, but how do I transfer it over to the ATV so that I can install the profile?

    I think it needs to be done using Apple Configurator either wireless or usb depending on your model, the process should remain the same from previous versions which I think would be documented online

    Go to settings on the Apple TV and then to software updates. There is a toggle to receive beta updates.

    Edit: I think you may need to be registered online to receive the beta updates though. I can't remember if I needed to do anything separate for it. Not that I bother with beta releases anymore.

    Under settings>general>Profiles there's an option to add profiles using a url so you could always copy the profile url and do it that way. I dont have the option switch for beta updates on my stock model so cant advise that way

    So what exactly worked? Before, just enabling beta updates worked. Now it doesn't seem to. and I don't have anything in settings labeled profiles.

    Does multi user support extend to icloud photos?

    I can imagine each user having access to their photo library. It would be great if that is true.

    Although I believe they would have mentioned it in the keynote.

    I'm sure the public beta will be coming today or tomorrow.

    I have added the tvOS 13 beta profile successfully and restarted but it just shows nothing under software update although beta updates is selected it remains on tvOS 12.4.
    What might be the reason for that? Anything else I need to do?

    Turning of beta updates made it work for me. Had 12.4 installed and it said everything was up-to-date. Turned off beta updates and he said tvOS 13 was available.

    I intalled iOS13 and don't like it. It's possible to rollback to 12.4 or just impossible? I tried delete the beta profile and reset and update but i get an error like "the device can0t download th uodate now, try again later"

    Can confirm that this over the air installation does work by using the pasted link method. I really like the new layout and it doesnt feel like a beta at all. I have paired my PS4 controller, which was simple, and works perfectly with games.

    Anyway, due to these significant changes I am considering upgrading my HD box to the 4K box.

    If you have a 4th gen apple tv, it can be downgraded by restoring it over USB in iTunes. The Apple TV 4K cannot be downgraded at all.

    does it work with iTunes and the new Apps as I have more than one system and wouldn't normally update my main iTunes library until close to the GM release

    Can the auto previews/trailers on the home screen be turned off?

    Please say yes, please say yes, please say yes!

    I found that using the new beta Apple Configurator was the fastest to get the profile loaded.
    Device pair to computer and Apple TV were already set
    ( not sure if you still need to register Apple TV as a dev device now )

    Apple Configurator should replace old profile but you can always manually delete from Apple tv with the remote

    Using a iPhone using and apple remote app to get file URL into into Apple tv did not work ( May have gotten and used the wrong file ? )

    Um for some reason Configurator crashes whenever I plug in the Apple TV. That's odd.
