Playing your iTunes library on your TV
If you have an AppleÂ TV, you can stream items (songs, movies, TV shows, and more) from your iTunes library to your TV. You can also sync your Apple TV with your iTunes library so that your iTunes content is automatically loaded onto your AppleÂ TV.
If yourÂ AppleÂ TV is synced with an iTunes library, it is already set up for streaming. You can also stream items from an iTunes library that isn’t synced with yourÂ AppleÂ TV.Â You can stream from up to five iTunes libraries, plus the library theÂ AppleÂ TV is synced with.
To set up your AppleÂ TV for streaming:
Make sure the computer you want to stream from is turned on, and iTunes is open.
Go to EditÂ > Preferences, choose Apple TV, and make sure â€œLook for Apple TVsâ€ is selected.
On your AppleÂ TV, choose SettingsÂ > ComputersÂ > â€œAdd Shared iTunes Library,â€ and then note the passcode displayed.
In iTunes, select the AppleÂ TV with â€œClick to set upâ€ next to it, and enter the passcode.
While content is being streamed, the computer must remain on (not in Sleep mode) and iTunes must remain open. If you stream content while AppleÂ TV is syncing, the sync pauses until streaming stops.
For more information, see the AppleÂ TV user’s guide at the AppleÂ TV Support website.
