Use Display Accommodations on your Apple TV

Find out how to use vision aids on your Apple TV 4K or Apple TV HD, such as Colour Filters, Reduce White Point and more.

Set up Display Accommodations

In Settings > Accessibility > Display Accommodations, you'll see three main options: Colour Filters, Light Sensitivity and Reduce White Point.

Colour Filters

Colour Filters can help you differentiate between colours or to read onscreen text.

To help you differentiate between colours, there are four presets. After you've chosen one (except Greyscale), you can then select Intensity to adjust the filter's strength:

  • Greyscale
  • Red/Green Filter (for Protanopia)
  • Green/Red Filter (for Deuteranopia)
  • Blue/Yellow Filter (for Tritanopia)

To help you read onscreen text, select the Colour Tint option. Then select Intensity or Hue to make adjustments.

Light Sensitivity

Lower or increase the overall brightness.

Reduce White Point

Lower or increase the intensity of bright colours.

Use a shortcut to turn Display Accommodations on and off

Since Display Accommodations aren't necessarily needed at all times, you can quickly turn them on and off with a shortcut:

  1. Go to Settings > Accessibility > Accessibility Shortcut.
  2. Select any features that you want a shortcut for.
  3. Press the Menu  button on your Apple TV Remote to leave the Settings menu. To use the shortcut that you've created, quickly press Menu  three times on your remote.
