Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming tvOS 13.3 update to developers, one week after seeding the second beta and three weeks after releasing the tvOS 13.2 update.
Designed for the fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models, the new tvOS 13.3 developer beta can be downloaded onto the Apple TV via a profile that's installed using Xcode.
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.
The update does, however, include a useful new setting that's designed to let you change the main banner interface in the TV+ app from What to Watch to Up Next, which shows content from shows that you're already watching instead of show suggestions.
The option can be accessed by going to the Settings app, choosing Apps, and selecting the TV app. From there, select Home Screen and choose "Up Next" in the "Top Shelf" section.
While we don't often know full details about what's new in tvOS during the beta testing process, we let MacRumors readers know when new updates are available so those who are developers can download it upon release.

Now Apple needs to give us the power to filter out ads, aka suggested shows, which are littered across the AppleTV app itself. So tacky. The appletv has more ads than content we have access to. Heck, it’s worse than that. It has ads for channels you already subscribe to. We’re not android users.
Once upon a time, Apple mocked the payola crapware that ships on PCs. Where is the discerning taste today? Cut the ads or give us an option to do so for the AppleTV app. Or put the ads in a separate tab, call it “discover” like music.
Edit to add: We watched 2 shows last night with no lagging or pauses at all. Fingers crossed it's fixed for good.
when playing apple music it should also be configurabable if lyrics are on or not. mostly i want no lyrics.
