Apple TV Support
I would like to see support for managing Apple TV devices.
Can you tell us more about what you need to control on Apple TV devices? Are you talking about devices in conference rooms, or are you using them for kiosks?
Any update here?
I would like to have it for configuration and pushing of apps.
We have somewhere around 500-1000 apple tvs, basically one in almost every classroom. Speeding up provisioning as well as being to centrally manage and restart the tv's would be extremely helpful. Right now on site technicians are using Apple configurator, but that locks management to one device. Our MDM has even fewer capabilities.

We have around 100 AppleTvs on one site in classrooms and would love to be able to do the following;
- have them in Intune for asset listing
- manage the AppleTVs to prevent them updating their OS (and prevent them asking if the end user wants to update)
- force them to update at an appropriate time
- manage any certificates

We use Apple TVs in conference rooms. Single App Mode and all of our Apple devices come with DEP. That includes iPhones, iPads, macOS and Apple TV.
Being able to push applications from VPP, Single App Mode, push wifi profiles, and set Conference Room Display settings is what we do on AirWatch now. Trying to do same on InTune.

We have Apple DEP enabled on all Apple product, without the DEP profile for tvOS, we are stuck with this error when try to setup manually. : The configuration for your Apple TV could not be downloaded from "company name". Invalid Profile.
If setup with device, we got the following error:
Unable to set up. This Apple TV is remotely managed and unable to start setup.
Yes, this is for demo purpose in the conference. To connect to iOS devices to cast screen.
I would like to see installed apps, os level and device information.
Would love to see the ability to manage Apple TV devices and push VPP apps. Use case deployment of Apple TV devices into meeting rooms with a single app mode app to restrict the device to single app.

Hello, I see that there was no answer here. So is there any support for Apple TV management from Intune? What can be managed from Intune?
Ryan Westbrook commented
We also need it in an EDU environment to force a standard home screen layout profile that blocks the previews on the default view that are sometimes inappropriate for a classroom.
In SCCM / Intune Hybrid i can configure an "inactive" DEP profile and get an Apple TV through the configuration. After we migrated to Intune only, they stuck in DEP enrollment with "cant load configuration profile". I have to enroll that devices!

H! Our interest in managing Apple TV devices is strictly in the kiosk role. To that end, what advice or thoughts can you offer?
Yes please. We would like to manage our devices to push software updates and lock them down.

Cathy, this is wery much used in schools for managing their ATVs. They want to push apps and restrict apps. Also to reset the devices after the students chanqe codes etc.
We may be moving from Mobile Iron to Intune and we also require management of Apple TV devices. Push config/profiles, updates, wireless profiles, and remote wipe for theft mitigation. Mostly for conference rooms.
if JAMF supports tvOS and you have macs you have to have JAMF anyway right?

Any updates on this? Right now I have 2 MDMs and would love to have just 1 - but without the ability to manage tvOS I will be sticking with JAMF.
wi-fi profiles, app deployment, general management (updates, etc.)... this should already be in intune.

My company has a use case where we need to be able to push certificates for Wi-Fi profiles to our Apple TV OS devices.
We really need this as well, not for conference rooms, but for kiosks. We have a mobile app deployed through Intune, which has a backup service running that backups data to the TvOS whenever the user is in range, then users of the application can pull files from the TvOS down to their iPad. We really need a way to push the application to BYOD enrolled TvOS devices because we have locations all over the world.
Enable enrolment of Apple TV. To be able to push wifi profiles. manage updates and reboot.
