How To Video
An easy way to stream Spotify and Amazon Video to your Apple TVCNET's Dan Graziano shows you how to use AirPlay to stream your favorite apps.
The new Apple tv doesn't include either Spotify or Amazon video, but there is still a way you can get them on your tv. First you need to make sure airplay is enabled. The apple TV must also be connected to the same network as your MAC or IOS device. On your MAC, open the web browser and head to Amazon's video page. Then select the airplay logo in the top corner of your MAC's menu bar. It should be next to the wi-fi icon. After choosing your Apple TV device, your computer will then be mirrored to your TV. Now just go ahead and play the Amazon video and just be sure to make it full screen. This can also be done on your iOS device. Simply open the Amazon video app, play the show or movie you would like to watch [MUSIC] Then catch the airplane logo and select your Apple TV. The method is pretty much the same for Spotify. Either mirror your computer screen to the Apple TV and open Spotify. To open your iOS device, open the Spotify app, select the song you want to play. Click where it says devices available. Choose more devices and select your Apple TV. Both of these methods can also be used on older Apple TV models. For more tips and tricks like this one, be sure to check out howto.cnet.com.
