How can I watch on my Apple TV?

Users with the 4th generation Apple TV can download the GoDuke app from the App Store on their Apple TV device. Access to LIVE and premium content will require an BDN+ subscription from the desktop site.

The  app will not be available on the 2nd generation and 3rd generation Apple TV. Users with those devices can watch BDN+ content on their Apple TV devices using AirPlay via iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch or Mac.

YES! BDN+ uses adaptive html5 technology compatible with most mobile browsers, including iOS and Android operating systems.

To sign up to any of the packages available, simply select one of the pricing boxes on the relevant pages or click on the 'Sign Up' link under the VIDEO menu dropdown at the top right of any page or click Here.
