Currently, Apple doesn’t offer much of a way to discover the over 900 apps currently available in the tvOS App Store, other than search (and, Siri doesn’t work in the App Store as yet). There are no Categories to browse, or Top Charts to view apps that Apple hasn’t deigned to feature. Hopefully, Apple will add these features very soon, as the current situation is sure to become frustrating to developers and users both.

The full list on SlideToPlay (via MacRumors) covers the top 200, as well as the breakdowns within different categories.
