How to force restart my Apple TV?

If your Apple TV is not responding, and you can’t turn it off or on, you can try forcing it to restart.

To force restart your Apple TV, you should disconnect your Apple TV from the socket, wait five seconds, then reconnect it. Alternatively, you can press and hold both the Back (2nd-generation Siri Remote) or Menu (1st-generation Siri Remote) and TV buttons on the Siri Remote until the Apple TV status light blinks rapidly.
