Neither device will allow you to display the streaming service to your tv. Apple tv isn't supported at all. Mobil devices using the stream app are blocked from display to an external display. There are only 2 ways to get xf streaming to display on a tv: use the streaming website on a pc with a hdmi cable between the pc and tv, or use the streaming roku app and a compatible roku.
