Starting today, Apple is giving developers an opportunity to get the latest Apple TV hardware for free.
Apple announced the all-new Apple TV, which brings a revolutionary experience to the living room with apps built for the television and Siri listening to your commands. Alongside the first tvOS beta, Apple also launched the Apple TV Developer Kit program, which gives developers the chance to build and test their apps on the Apple TV before it becomes available to the public.
The Apple TV Developer Kit includes the all-new set-top-box, Apple TV Remote, Power Cord, Lightning to USB Cable, USB-A to USB-C Cable, and documentation. If you are a developer registered in the Apple Developer Program or Apple Developer Enterprise Program as of September 9, 2015, at 9 a.m. PDT, you can apply for yours until September 11 at noon.

The Apple TV Developer Kit program is limited to the following counties:
