tvOS 10.2 update requires AirPlay hardware verification, breaks third-party streaming apps

As a result, Apple hardware using native AirPlay routines are unaffected by the issue. It is unclear if this is an accident, or an intentional change made by Apple to block the third-party utilities. The block remains in the tvOS 10.2.1 beta. The second- and third-generation Apple TV are unaffected, as they have not been updated recently. – Mike Wuerthele, AppleInsider
