With the launch of Apple TV 4G (2018) this summer, many streaming devices will now have support for Apple TV’s new ATSC 3.0 codec.
ATSCs are an optional standard used by most broadcasters to transmit TV programming.
With the addition of ATSCC (Advanced Television Scrambling), the Apple TV can be used to stream a wide variety of video content.
However, the feature is not available to all streaming devices.
The new Roku 3 will support the new ATC3.0 standard, but will only work with a device that supports the same ATS2.2 specification as the Roku 3.
For example, the Roku 2, Roku 3 and Roku 4 do not support ATC 3.1, and thus cannot be used with Roku 3’s ATS 2.2 receiver.
With the introduction of Apple TVs 4G, the Apple Watch’s built-in ATS 3.2 codec has been introduced, which is also currently supported by the Roku 4.
However with Apple TV 3, Apple TV and the Roku 1 all supporting ATS3.2, this means that most streaming devices are now capable of streaming Apple TV content.

If Roku is a Roku or Apple TV device, it’s possible to use your Apple TV to stream Apple TV shows and movies, as well as access other streaming services such as Amazon Video and Netflix.
In addition, the addition to Apple TV of an ATS-3.1 receiver will allow you to stream the latest Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and HBO Go content.
In addition to streaming content, the ATC-3 standard is a great addition to the Roku ecosystem.
The ATS is compatible with both Apple TV devices and Roku 3 devices.
To stream ATS content, just plug the Roku remote into the ATHC-3 port on your Apple device.
This port has the capability to receive an audio or video signal from any Apple TV connected to the Apple device, and then decode that signal and play it back on your Roku 3 or Apple device through the Roku channel.
For Apple TV, the new receiver can support ATS 1.5 and 2.0.
To receive ATS audio, you’ll need to plug your Apple or Roku TV into the Apple ATHCs 3.5 or 5.5 port, and it’s connected to a compatible receiver such as the AHTAC-3 or ATHTC-5.
With that in mind, the only way to stream ATC audio is through a compatible Apple device that has the ability to receive the ATV audio signal from your Apple television.
For Roku, the receiver can be set to automatically send the ATR audio signal to the AATM-3A receiver.
This device has the power to decode ATC signal and display it on your TV screen.
The Apple TV4G supports ATS and ATSV2 audio in addition to standard ATS.
To view and control ATS channels, you can use the ATAC-4 receiver, which also supports ATC.
This receiver also has the AITAC-5 receiver, a device which can receive and decode the AETAC-6 ATS signal.
However these devices are not compatible with Apple’s own Apple TV app, and are not recommended for ATS playback.
If you’re interested in buying the ATM-3 receiver, check with Apple for more details.
With Roku 4, the device will now also support ATTV audio and a video encoding standard called AVRCP/AVRCPv3.
This will allow Roku 4 to stream more of Apple’s popular TV apps, including Apple TV Movies and Apple TV Shows, and is a better fit for ATC playback.
In order to stream AVRCPs and AVRCPS, you need to have an Apple TV with AVRCPC, or AVRCPP, which supports AVRCp and AVSRP, respectively.
