Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming tvOS 17.5 to developers for testing purposes, with the beta coming a month after the release of tvOS 17.4.

Registered developers are able to download the tvOS 17.5 update by opting in to the beta through the Settings app on the Apple TV. A registered developer account is required.

tvOS software updates are often minor in scale compared to other operating system updates, focusing primarily on smaller improvements rather than outward-facing changes. We don't yet know what's included in tvOS 17.5.

Apple shares some information on tvOS releases in its tvOS support document, which is updated after each tvOS launch, but Apple does not provide notes during beta testing.

Though we don't always know what's new in tvOS betas, we let MacRumors readers know when new updates are available so those who are developers can download new software upon release.

Well, if you don’t want those apps then why even buy the Apple TV in the first place? Just buy a Roku or FireStick and be done with it.
Those things are now in the Apple TV app so they are redundant.

So far after this update to tvOS 17.5 beta the Viki app hasn't quit unexpectedly. So back to the stability it had before the RC.
