Organizing your apps on Apple TV is very similar to organizing your apps on any other Apple device. To do this:

  • Use the touchpad to identify the app you want to move or delete.

  • Press and hold the app using the touchpad, then drag it to a new location.

  • Tap the touchpad to finish.

  • If you want to delete the selected app, tap the Play/Pause button on your Apple TV remote. Then tap the touchpad to finish.


Pretty simple, eh? Now you can organize your Apple TV apps as beautifully as on your iPhone's Home screen.
