    When i try to open the new tv app in the app store it tells me that i have restrictions turned on and therefore can’t. But it’s not turned on and i have never used any restrictions. Any advise to fix this?

    Yeah its weird. I don't have the app installed, but I can see the settings for it
    and when I go into the App Store it just tells me to open.
    Do a spotlight search for it and see if the app is found. If so, select it and see if it opens. If not, reboot the device to see if it appears or go to the device’s storage settings and then delete it. Afterwards, reinstall the app from the App Store.

    Go to the restrictions section in Settings and enable restrictions, then disable it again and see if it works.

    It didn’t. It’s as if the app is already installed but i just can’t open it. Really weird!

    Is your iOS device managed by your employer or school?

    I’m missing something. You stated, “when I try to open the new tv app in the App Store...”.

    In a later post, you stated, “ it’s as if the app is already installed...”.

    My question is this - Isn’t the app suppose to be installed first before you’re able to open or use it?

    I found it in the device’s storage settings and deleted it. Now everything works! Thank you!
