Two Ways to Get Apple TV's Beautiful Screensavers on Android TV [Update: Undersea Videos Now Added]

Google's Android TV is currently one of the best Platforms to watch TV on, it boasts more than 5,000 Apps that are catered for Android TV. After all, what good is an Operating System without great Apps to use (ahem Microsoft)?

Amazon recently came to an agreement with Google to feature their Apps in the Android TV Play Store and support Google Cast, they did this shortly after Google revoked their YouTube App from all Amazon Devices - YouTube still hasn't provided an App for Amazon Devices that aren't displayed in a Browser. This shows how important Apps are for TV Platforms.

Today I'm showcasing an App that I love - ever since Apple announced their new Generation Apple TV's I've been in awe, not because of their TV and Movie Services but, their Screensavers.

That's right, they have Beautiful Screensavers which shows Footage from an Aerial Drone flying over Cities all around the World. The latest Screensavers from Apple shows the view of Countries from Space.

Update 20/04/20

I have just added Apple's new Undersea Videos that are extremely beautiful to look at, preview them down below.

Once you see the Screensavers, you will want them. Luckily the Screensaver is available for Android TV, I did try sideloading it to my 4k Fire TV Stick but it failed to override Amazon's own Screensaver.

Daniel Cachapa has figured out that Apple has essentially made these Videos freely available on the Internet, so he decided to package an App that will make use of Apple's oversight. I for one am glad he did this, now you can enjoy Apple's Screensavers on any Android TV Device, this includes Sony's latest Televisions with Android TV built-in, the Nexus Player, Xiaomi Mi Box S and Nvidia Shield TV.

NVIDIA Shield TV

An alternative to Aerial Dream

The Aerial Dream App isn't the only way to enjoy Apple's beautiful Screensavers on your Android TV, some of you may prefer not to have Aerial Dream taking up your precious Bandwidth whilst streaming Apple's High-Quality Videos.

You can preview and Download the Videos that you want from the table below, then use an App called 'Photo Gallery and Screensaver' to turn the Videos into a Screensaver. You will have to store the Videos somewhere which could take up lots of space, I recommend using a USB Drive or a Map a Network Share if you have an Nvidia Shield.

This alternative doesn't seem to work with the HDR videos, I'm hoping the developer can add HDR support in the future.
