Apple's latest Apple TV is integrating with iHeartMedia's iHeartRadio to add even more more music capabilities, including Apple Music, as Apple seeks to try and own the living room.
The announcement was made Tuesday morning by iHeartMedia, which seeks to add distribution partners for its service.
Included in the iHeartRadio Apple TV app will be all the same features seen on mobile devices, including access to thousands of Live Stations, Custom Stations, as well as podcasts.
Formerly Clear Channel Communications, iHeartMedia was taken private in 2008 by Bain Capital, and Thomas H. Lee Partners as part of a 2008 leveraged buyout.
In addition, both registered and unregistered users of iHeartRadio can play Live and Custom Radio, view recommendations, save favorite stations and access the service's latest feature -- My Favorites Radio -- which combines a user's favorite stations and artists into one station.In recent weeks, Apple has been adding more apps to its Apple TV set-top box, which was unveiled in September 2015 as part of the Cupertino, Calif.-based company's efforts to control entertainment in the living room.
The integration with Apple TV comes on top of iHeartRadio's announcement Monday that it would integrate with the Play-Fi app and speaker, allowing Play-Fi owners to hear iHeartRadio on the streaming speaker system.
