    Does anyone know if our existing iPad and iPhone apps will automatically appear on the new Apple TV, or will we have to laboriously download each one from the app store again, with all the attendant verifying accounts that entails?

    I don't think anyone outside Apple currently knows what the App Store experience is going to be on the new Apple TV. All will be revealed in a day or three.

    Also note that existing apps won't magically appear on tvOS unless the developer has written a tvOS version and associated it with the existing iOS app (as opposed to selling it as a separate purchase).
