Unless you are a developer, you should stay away from the Apple TV developer beta as it is not easy to install. It requires the use of Xcode and connecting the Apple TV to a Mac. You also need a subscription to Apple Developer Center. If you are an enthusiast, you should wait for the public beta which can easily be installed by going to Apple TV settings.
