UITextView not Scrolling in tvOS

I have a

in my TV app, when i try to make it focusable then the UI is not making it focusable and i am unable to scroll it. I read some questions about it and some says that its a known issue and we should use storyboards. Actually i am using storyboards but still unable to get this to work. I have also tried to make it
and then finally also tried this line of code but none of them is working.

descriptionLbl.panGestureRecognizer.allowedTouchTypes = [NSNumber(integer: UITouchType.Direct.rawValue)]

I also tried to print
of the
and here is the log

Content Size (740.0, 914.0)
Bounds (25.0, 0.0, 740.0, 561.0)

Here is my code can some body help me

@IBOutlet weak var descriptionLbl: UITextView!
var currentModel : Model?

override func viewDidLoad() {

descriptionLbl.selectable = true
descriptionLbl.scrollEnabled = true
descriptionLbl.userInteractionEnabled = true

descriptionLbl.panGestureRecognizer.allowedTouchTypes = [NSNumber(integer: UITouchType.Direct.rawValue)]

descriptionLbl.text = (currentModel?.description)! + (currentModel?.description)! + (currentModel?.description)!
descriptionLbl?.contentInset = UIEdgeInsets(top: 0.0, left: -25.0, bottom: 0.0, right: 0.0);


i guess i should not be doing these many tricks but it is not working in any way. The focus is actually coming to
but it does not scroll. Any ideas?

I believe you want Indirect, not Direct touches. Here is how I set up my focusable, scrollable UITextView:

self.selectable = YES;
self.userInteractionEnabled = YES;
self.panGestureRecognizer.allowedTouchTypes = @[@(UITouchTypeIndirect)];
