  2. Select the ‘Discover’ option.

  18. Select the name of your Apple TV in the configurator app.
  19. Press and hold to drag the Configuration Profile from the desktop to the Apple TV icon in the app.

Finally, the Apple TV will be configured for the tvOS 14. Thus, you’ll now be able to install the beta version just like any other update. In case, you’ve already set up your TV, all you need to do is download the profile, launch Apple Configurator, and bring the profile to the Apple TV.

Installing the tvOS Beta Restore Image Over USB-C
You can use a USB-C cable to download the restore image on your 4th generation Apple TV, and the steps to do the same are:
