    I've had the 4th gen Apple TV since last October and am experiencing a very annoying issue with TV channel apps. First, I authorize the apps on my computer and successfully sign in on the ATV. Then I can watch without problems for a few days to a week later. After that period I get an error message "no authz" when trying to watch programming. This happens for every single TV app and it's annoying when you have 10+ apps doing the same thing. It got to the point where I stopped using the ATV4 and I'm even considering selling it just because it's sitting here collecting dust. Has anyone experienced this issue and if so, do you have a solution for it? I called Apple support and they said there's nothing I can do but restore it and reinstall the apps. I've tried that numerous times..

    Support is correct. For the moment, the best trouble-shooting course of action is to delete and re-install the troublesome apps.

    Help may be on the way very soon though, when tvOS 10 is released later this year. Apple is instituting a feature called "single sign-on" that should solve this problem for you. So hang on.
