Is it possible to use multiple Apple TVs as Homekit hubs on the same network at the same time?

The reason I'm asking is that I have a Bluetooth accessory that doesn't reliably connect to the ATV4 I have been using as my hub so far. I have another ATV4 that is closer to the accessory, but I don't see the Homekit option under Accounts/iCloud.

Just following up in case someone has the same issue: Logging out of iCloud and back in on the second Apple TV solved the problem. Now both ATVs show as connected, and my accessory works much better. :)

That's interesting...does that mean the ATV4 is acting as a sort of range extender for Homekit capable devices?
