An Update to above comment. 

This is an intermittent issue. we are able to view the Simulators 1 out of 5 times. 

we also checked this issue by deleting old Simulators and Creating NewOne, Still getting the same issue.

Comment 4 Mohit Kheterpal 2016-01-29 18:58:45 UTC
I have checked this issue with XVS and observed that this issue is fixed i.e. user is able to see and deploy tvOS application on simulator.

Hence closing this issue.
