Starting today, Apple Music will be available on the Roku platform. Any Roku device, including streaming devices, Roku-powered TVs, speakers, and soundbars, will be able to play music from the service (such as Roku Streambar Pro).
Not only will this be beneficial to Apple Music users who already own Roku players, but it may also help Apple attract new members who may be turned off by competitors like Spotify. Newcomers can join up for Apple Music via the app, which is accessible on the Roku channel store. The service costs $10 per month after a one-month trial.
Roku streaming devices and Roku TV models, as well as Roku audio equipment like the Roku Streambar Pro, support the music streaming service as an app.
Apple Music offers 90 million songs as well as songs from a local music library that have been transferred to the cloud. 30,000 curated playlists, Apple Music Radio, music videos with time-synced lyrics, and exclusive Apple Music original shows and concerts are all included in the music subscription service.
With specialized apps for Apple TV set-top boxes, Amazon Fire TV devices, and PlayStation 5 consoles, the Apple Music app was already available on the big screen. The app is also available on some Samsung and LG Smart TVs.
If you have a Roku device, you can obtain a free one-month trial of Apple Music by signing up through the Roku channel shop. Otherwise, Apple Music is $9.99 per month, with a $14.99 per month family subscription for up to six members.
According to a research by Midia Research, Apple Music was the second most popular music streaming service in Q2 2021, with a 15% market share, trailing only Spotify with 31%. According to Hypothesis Group, Roku is the most popular TV streaming platform in the United States.
Subscribers have access to a music collection with over 90 million songs and 30,000 tailored playlists. They can also stream Apple Music Radio, see 4K music videos, and watch original shows and concerts.
Apple Music is coming to Roku three years after it first appeared on Fire TV, and nearly as long after its Android app received Chromecast compatibility. The majority of the main music streaming providers will now be available on Roku. Spotify, Amazon Music, and Tidal were among the services it previously provided.
