Rock Out with Apple TV

The Apple TV isn’t just a great device to watch movies and TV — it’s also a fantastic hub for all your audio. This chapter kicks off with a quick look at the important topic of improving sound quality and then cruises through the most important audio apps on the Apple TV.

In The Music App, I talk about how you can buy music from Apple and play your previous purchases. And, in The iTunes Radio App, I look at how you can play featured stations created by Apple or make your own. Of course, you can also access music from The Computers App, even if its not from Apple, or you may want to learn how to Rip CDs for Apple TV. Plus, you can also listen to The (Internet) Radio App on your Apple TV.

With all the music covered, it’s time to talk about The Podcasts App. Finally, the chapter closes with a careful look at how to AirPlay Audio from Your Mac to an Apple TV.
