  1. I would like to know how to get to a settings page for Apple TV app on my Visio RV or how to get to a sign in page. My only options are to try for free or add to watchlist. I already have an Apple TV plus account. I can’t figure out how to stream from the Apple TV app on my phone to the Visio tv (eventhough they are in the same network and have been paired).
