Authorizing a computer for Apple TV is one of the best features we have seen in Apple products. If we want to listen to music from iTunes on our computer or we want to share the saved music with someone from our iTunes playlist. The authorization makes it possible. The authorization will only be applied on five computers at a time, and in this count, iPhones or iPads will not be counted.

Only Windows computers or Macs will be included. To authorize any 6 devices you need to deauthorize any single from a previously authorized device. If you have an iTunes account and you want to use it on the computer, then you are in the right place. Here at Freelancing with Ehsan, we will guide you on how to authorize the computer for Apple TV.

  • Now download and install the latest version of iTunes on your computer or Mac.
  • After installing open your application and click the account button from the upper header.
  • The dropdown will be open, click on sign-in, If you have installed iTunes freshly, If you were using iTunes before on your computer, then you don’t need to sign in again.
