The Pangu Team has done it again.

The group of Chinese developers behind some of the most well-known iOS jailbreaking programs has released the first tool designed specifically to bypass the tvOS 9.0 and tvOS 9.0.1 for the Apple TV 4.

Jailbreaking allows Apple TV owners to watch TV shows and movies that are normally unavailable through iTunes. People who jailbreak their devices usually do so to have access to other channels and online streaming services such as ESPN, NBA, CBS, ABC, MTV, PBS, Pandora, Hulu and Amazon.

The newest jailbreak tool, Pangu 1.0 version, can be downloaded from the group's website.
