How do I use the Apple TV app?

The Apple TV app is compatible with 4th gen Apple TV devices due to the lack of an App Store for prior versions of the Apple TV. You can find it by searching Pluralsight while using Apple TV. If you have an older device, you can still stream to your TV by using AirPlay.

You will need to have a Pluralsight Skills subscription in order to watch video content, but there is no additional fee for using the app.

The Apple TV app only supports online streaming, and does sync with your account to see features like recently viewed bookmarks and searching our course catalog.
