I don't see this on our near-term roadmap. Iceboxing for now.

Is this still on ice or is Apple TV and Android TV support being considered now?

No current plan for AppleTV support. I've definitely seen folks run Flutter Apps on Android TV however, but it's not something we're currently testing/investing in.

Is this issue a duplicate of #15288?

Would really love to build OTT apps for tvOS and Android TV with Flutter, please consider adding support for this soon.

Probably the most difficult aspect to adding support for TV devices is adding D-Pad remote support which requires spatial navigation of interactive widgets currently rendered to screen (includes AppBar). In addition, it would require scroll into view functionality for lists when navigating through list items. Perhaps a make-shift work around for now is handling key press events with hardcoded next focus widgets, not 100% that would be possible.

In full disclosure, I'm coming from React Native development where all of this is already handled by the OS.

By the way, I've picked this item back up. I'm currently trying to get Flutter to build to tvOS so I have removed the guard rail platform support check in flutter_tool emulators.dart. so far I've built the xcodeproject to tvOS, but I still haven't been able to open the app. I'm now setting up my environment to compile the Flutter engine locally since we'll need to provide a new build target .framework for tvOS.

Any luck ott-web? We are looking to port tvOS to Flutter. We were able to wrap the Amazon FireTV very quickly. Now we need Apple TV.
