Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.3 update to its public beta testing group, one day after seeding the first beta to developers and one week after releasing the tvOS 13.2 update.

Public beta testers can download the new update by going to the Settings app on the Apple TV and navigating to the Software Updates section under "System." "Get Public Beta Updates" will need to be toggled on, and once it is, the ‌‌Apple TV‌‌ will download the beta software.

Those who want to beta test the software can sign up to do so on Apple's beta testing website.

tvOS updates (aside from major releases) have historically been minor in scale, focusing on under-the-hood bug fixes and improvements rather than major outward-facing changes.

Apple provides little to no information on what's included in tvOS beta updates, so we may not discover any major changes after installing the software. There were no significant updates found in yesterday's tvOS 13.3 beta.

Do you mean the Up Next upper third has been restored (replacing the ads for paid content) ????
Yes indeed! It’s now an option in the TV app settings. You can choose top shelf or ads - easy choice for me!

I’m not sure why MacRumors is sleeping on this massive change. It warrants a front page update, IMO.

Where in the settings is this? I went thru all the settings last night after I updated, and I could not find it.

Top Shelf is back and it feels so good. Def. not a "yawn" update for me.

They should just make a seperate AppleTV+ app or make it a seperate app not linked to tvOS/iOS/macOS updates.

A13X in the new next AppleTV 4K... take my money now.. would solve the sometimes horrible performance of Arcade games... plus please add VP9 and Youtube HDR.
