I don't have Apple TV but I continue to receive emails about it; also I am constantly locked out of my Apple ID?

I know my password to the Apple ID but it is continually reset. Are the Airplay, AirDrop and Apple TV apps added to settings automatically? Because without being able to access my Apple ID I can't add the apps they only appear in settings. I have tried: Resetting network; Apple ID recovery; creating new Apple ID; purchased new phone; changed mobile carriers. I think it was caused by: I am not a technical person; I do read and try to follow instructions
