Apple launches Apple Music TV. Here’s how to watch.


Apple has launched Apple Music TV, a free 24-hour curated livestream of popular music videos that will also include “exclusive new music videos and premiers, special curated music video blocks, and live shows and events as well as chart countdowns and guests,” according to the announcement.

Apple Music TV will be available to U.S. residents only on the Apple Music app and the Apple TV app.

In iOS/iPad OS:

  • Launch the Music app
  • Tap the Browse tab
  • Tap the Apple Music TV intro article, or tap “Apple Music TV: Watch Now”
  • To return to the Browse tab, pull down on the window
  • Tap stop button to stop

On the Mac:

  • Launch the Music app
  • Tap the Browse tab (in the sidebar on the left)
  • Tap the Introducing Apple Music TV article
  • To exit, close the window

On Apple TV:

  • Press and hold the Apple TV remote’s Menu button to get to the top level of the interface
  • Tap Apple TV
  • Tap Watch Now tab
  • Scroll down to new Apple Music TV section
  • Tap one of the buttons (Apple Music, Watch, or Listen). They all seem to lead to the live interface.

I love the big screen experience, which you can get on your Mac (with a big screen attached) or via AirPlay. Note that explicit videos may be playing, so plan accordingly.
