Apple today seeded the fourth beta of tvOS 10.0.1 to developers for testing purposes, 10 days after releasing the third tvOS 10.0.1 beta and more than a month after releasing the tvOS 10 update. tvOS 10.0.1 has been in testing since September 21.

Designed for the fourth-generation Apple TV, the tvOS 10.0.1 beta can be obtained by connecting the Apple TV to a computer with a USB-C to USB-A cable and downloading and installing the software from a registered developer account via iTunes or Apple Configurator. Once a beta profile has been installed on the device through iTunes, new beta updates will be available over the air.

tvos10-0-1beta
No obvious outward-facing features were discovered in the first three tvOS 10.0.1 betas, so it's likely the update focuses on bug fixes and under-the-hood performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of the first version of tvOS 10.

Single sign-on, a feature that will allow Apple TV users to sign in once with their cable credentials to access all live cable content included in a cable subscription, does not appear to be included in this beta and will be introduced in the future.

tvOS 10 brings improved search, expanded Siri capabilities, a new dark mode, a Continuity option for using the iPhone for text input, automatic download of universal apps, easy access to live TV, and more.

I was having issues with my remote, my swipes wouldn't always work, I felt like I had to press buttons twice for it to register. I unplugged the apple tv for a few seconds and plugged it back in. that seemed to reset and fix everything for me. worth a try if you haven't already.
