The trick to doing audio description on Netflix is as follows.

1.  Start a show.

2.  Pause it by pressing and holding in the select button on your third gen 
Apple TV.

3.  Now, arrow up once and then go right once until you hear “audio.

4.  Now, go down until you hear “English audio description”.  Press select on 
that and you’re done.

Somehow, though, it doesn’t seem to stick so you might want to have a list 
handi of all the shows with audio description you want to access just in case.

Still a very happy Mac, Verizon Wireless iPhone6+ and Apple TV user!!!!!
