    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Yes, there is. There are two methods of enrollment for the Apple TV:

    1. Apple Configurator Enrollment.
    2. ABM Enrollment.

    The Apple Configurator enrollment method does not require an ABM account.
    To enroll an Apple TV using Apple Configurator:

    • Navigate to Enroll > Platform – Specific > tv OS > Apple Configurator. Assign a user and click Save.
    • Create a Wi-Fi profile in Apple Configurator.
    • Create a Blueprint in Apple Configurator.
    • Connect the Apple TV to the Mac running Apple Configurator and apply the Blueprint.

    Please check out our help doc on enrolling Apple TV for more detailed steps.

    Cheers!

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    The pre-requisites to be met for enrolling Apple TV devices via ABM enrollment method are:

    1. The device should be running tvOS 10.2 or later.
    2. The device must have been purchased directly from Apple or Apple Authorized Resellers/carriers on or after March 1,2011.
    3. If the device was purchased from Apple, the purchaser must have used an enrolled and verified Apple Customer Number.
    4. If the device was purchased from Apple Authorized Reseller or carrier, the device must be linked to his DEP Reseller ID. The actual date of eligibility will be decided by the participating Apple Authorized Reseller/ carrier sales’ history.

    Please check out our help doc on ABM enrollment for more info.
