Music On Your TV

The Apple TV is a great way to just have some background music going on in your home or office as you do focus on other things.

Old-School Radio Talk Shows On The TV

Sometimes you just can't help but love the traditional radio stations. Or maybe you want to listen to some podcasts or talk shows on your Apple TV.

Radio - Receiver

Radio stations and podcasts galore.

Radio - Receiver
Popular podcasts

For fans of the iOS app who want to continue listening on the big screen.

You can listen to more than 25,000 and podcasts and 30,000 radio stations from the comfort of a living room. The app is perfect for anyone new to podcasts or someone who knows exactly what they want to listen to. Along with viewing popular and local stations, you can browse by genre, location, and language. Or you can just search.

Why we love it

While it might not be the most visually pleasing app on the Apple TV, the power of Receiver really lies in its iCloud syncing capability with the iPhone/iPad app. That will allow you to view Favorite stations on any device.

  • Use the iPhone/iPod app.

Not for those who...

  • Are looking for a free podcast player.
  • Want something that is well-designed.

Watch Your Favorite Songs

What's the meaning behind your favorite song? Chances are it's revealed in the music video, so fire up your Apple TV and watch them in high definition.

Enjoy Concerts From Your Own Home

While going out to a concert is great, the tickets can get pricey and you probably won't be able to go to all of the shows you want to see (unless you're rich). Don't worry — just kick back on your couch and watch the concerts on your Apple TV instead.
