Apple Music comes to Roku

Apple Music is the best streaming music service. Yes, it is much better than Spotify. This is fact. I know this to be true, as I have used both and found Apple’s offering to be superior. Apple Music isn’t limited to the company’s own devices like iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV either — it can also be accessed on Android and the web, for instance.

Today, Apple Music comes to yet another platform — Roku. Yes, whether you have a Roku media box or TV with Roku integrated, you can now access Apple Music with it. How cool is that?

“Starting today, Roku users can access over 90 million songs and 30,000 expert-curated playlists for any occasion, ad-free on the Apple Music app. In addition, Roku users with an Apple Music subscription can live stream today’s hits, classics, and country with the award-winning Apple Music Radio, as well as listen to songs, albums, and playlists from their own music library,” says Roku.


The company adds, “The Apple Music app also allows users to watch music videos in 4K on compatible devices and sing along to their favorite songs with time-synced lyrics. Subscribing users will also gain access to Apple Music original shows, concerts, and exclusives, as well as personalized recommendations.”

You can install Apple Music on your Roku device or compatible television starting today from the Roku channel store. Unlike Spotify, there is no ad-supported free tier, so you must pay at least $9.99 per month to enjoy it. However, according to Roku, users that sign up through a compatible device will get a free month.
