How to Watch TNT on Apple TV [Easy Guide]

Watch TNT on Apple TV

My cousin recently bought an Apple TV 4K to watch his favorite sports in high quality. Since it is new for him, he asked me for guidance in installing the TNT app on his device. I told him to visit the App Store to get the Watch TNT app on his Apple TV 4K. After the installation, he logged in with his TV provider and streamed live sports, series, and movies.

Remember, you can’t install the Watch TNT app on an older Apple TV because it works only with tvOS 13.0 and later. If you have an old model, install this app on an iPhone and use the Screen Mirroring feature to wirelessly stream it on Apple TV. Optionally, watch the TNT channel on Apple TV using Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and DirecTV Stream.
