A list of accessible apps for the Apple TV?

tvOS & Apple TV Apps

Maybe I am just not looking in the right spots on this site, but I was wondering if someone has created a list of what apps are accessible for the newest apple TV? We just got one, and would like to know what is out there, and accessible.

They do not have a category for AppleTV accessibility as far as I know. My suggestion? To start with, download whatever apps your AppleTV will allow you to do once you have signed in to the app store with your Apple ID and test their accessibility. At this point, it's just a matter of trial and error.

Jarrod and others:
While I agree, it would be great if AppleVis had a category for accessible AppleTV apps, this hasn't happened yet. In the mean time, I'd recommend a book by Jonathan Mosen called AppleTV Fourth Generation with VoiceOver. This book, which costs about $20 U.S., has a wealth of information for even experienced blind users of the AppleTV. In the back of the book, Jonathan provides a fairly extensive list of free apps for the AppleTV he has found to be accessible. This is the most comprehensive list of apps I have yet to find for this device. In addition to the list of apps, this book contains some great tips and tricks! I've been using my AppleTV for almost six months now and I definitely learned a thing or two. You can find a link to purchase the book at:
Hope that helps.

Does the use of the apple tv require an entire book? It's a pretty sparse OS, though, I can imagine that as it has features added the complexity wil increase.

I agree, there should be a catogry for apple TV apps. They are stand alone unlike apple watch apps which tend to be companions. This would also encourage developers to consider us in app development. IOS developers obviously use this site to get feedback and ideas as it is.

Just my opinion though. I'm already very grateful for this resource so it's not for me to go rocking the boat... Don't rock the boat baby.
