Stream content using Home Sharing

You can stream music, movies, TV shows, photos, and other iTunes content from a computer or iOS device to your Apple TV. Both the device and Apple TV must be configured to use the same iTunes account.

Configure a computer. In iTunes, go to File > Home Sharing and choose Turn on Home Sharing. Enter your Apple ID and password, then click Turn on Home Sharing.

Note: In Windows 7 and Windows 8, iTunes menus are hidden by default. To show them temporarily, press the Alt key.

Configure an iOS device. Go to Settings > Videos or Settings > Music and turn on Home Sharing. Enter your Apple ID and password.

If you set up Apple TV and multiple devices with the same Apple ID, content from all the devices is available on your Apple TV.

Configure Apple TV. On Apple TV, in Settings Settings icon, go to Accounts > Home Sharing. Turn On Home Sharing, then enter your Apple ID and password.

Stream content on Apple TV. Once you’ve configured all your devices using the same Apple ID, highlight Computers Home Sharing on the Apple TV Home screen and press the Touch surface. Libraries from your shared devices appear, and you can view or play any content from any library.
