Drag to create folders

To create a folder, simply hold down the first shortcut you want to move and then drag it onto another shortcut. For example, you could drag Netflix onto Hulu.

iCloud Photo

This is a change from previous versions of Apple TV. The set-top box could only access Photo Stream photos in the past, and these would expire after a set period.
