How do I get Plex content to show up in the Top Shelf?

The Apple TV allows apps to highlight content in the Top Shelf area if enabled.

Enabling the Top Shelf

Allowing Plex content to appear in the Top Shelf is easy:

  1. Navigate to Settings in the app
  2. Enable the Top Shelf preference

Requirements (or "Why doesn't content show up?")

In order for content to appear, there are a few requirements:

  • The setting must be enabled (see above)
  • The Plex app must be in the first row of apps on your home screen
  • If you are a member of a Plex Home, then either:
    1. You must have the Automatically Sign In preference enabled OR
    2. You must not have a PIN set for your Home member
  • Your router must not have DNS Rebind Protection enabled

Tip!: Our Secure Servers guide has information related to DNS Rebind Protection.
