A majority of times, restarting devices solves the issues. The same is the case with Apple TV. Here is how you can restart Apple TV:

You can confront several Wi-Fi related issues with your Apple TV. Apple TV might not be connecting to Wi-Fi, or it might keep dropping the Wi-Fi connection.
If your Wi-Fi is very slow, then you need to go to your Apple TV’s settings and select Network from the options. Now, see if any IP address is mentioned. When you can see an IP address, but the WiFi signal is poor, then you should shift the wireless access point nearer to your Apple TV.

Delete those applications.
