Two Solutions to Get Apple Music on Apple TV

'Q: Apple Music on Apple TV 3? Is it possible to get Apple Music on Apple TV 3? I can stream to it from my iMac, but it would be nice to launch Apple Music from the TV directly... Evgeniy Krechun asked on the famous Q&A website Ask Different.'

We can learn from the Apple website: If you subscribe to Apple Music, you can download songs, albums, and playlists for offline listening on Apple TV with the Music app. But it requires Apple TV (4th generation) or later. That's to say, Apple Music is not supported on the 3rd Generation Apple TV or earlier.

So can we get Apple Music on all models of Apple TV? Don't worry; we will have the issue of playing Apple Music on Apple TV in two solutions.

Solution 1. Sync Apple Music to Apple TV 4 through iCloud Music Library

Apple's latest Apple TV offers the Music app. With Music app, you can not only listen to all your own music collection through iCloud Music Library in the My Music section, but also access all the tracks made available through that service, including radio stations.

1 Open the Music app on Apple TV. Once you've subscribed to Apple Music, you need to log into your Apple TV using the same Apple ID as used for your Apple Music account in Settings > Accounts.

2 You can then enable the service on your Apple TV in Settings > Apps > Music, where you should turn on iCloud Music Library in order to access all your own music on the system.

3 Now you can find an artist, song, or album to play.

Solution 2. How to Play Apple Music on Apple TV 1/2/3

If you have an older Apple TV model, and you will find there is no Music app on it. If you want to play Apple Music files on this kind of Apple TV, what should you do? You can stream music collections held on other Apple devices around your home using the Home Sharing feature. Still, if you want to listen to Apple Music tracks, you need to stream them to your TV from a compatible device, such as an iPhone, iPad, or Mac using AirPlay.

All the solutions require an apple music subscription. If you'd like to cancel your subscription, any streaming music you've added to your library from the Apple Music catalog will no longer be playable. So is it possible to save Apple Music songs before your Apple Music subscription ends so that you can play Apple Music song on all models of Apple TV anytime?

With it, you can convert the downloaded Apple Music songs to MP3, AAC, AIFF, FALC and WAV with original output quality.
