Apple has released the first version of tvOS 14.3 developer beta for Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K. The update is now available in Apple Developer Center, as well as over-the-air for devices that were already enrolled in the beta testing program.
tvOS 14.3 developer beta
The new beta was released alongside iOS 14.3 beta and watchOS 7.2 beta. The installation process for tvOS developer betas is not the easiest so we recommend that you wait for the public beta, which requires just one click to download and install on Apple TV. As it is a developer beta, there might be stability and bugs which could ruin your experience.
Apple usually rolls out the public beta build a few days after the developer beta is released.
