iTunes Music On Any TV (Without A Home Server!)

For the first time, anyone can get their iTunes music to their TV without running a home server. It's easier than you think and you can get the added bonus of the best selling video player at the lowest price ever. Below I'll show you how with a video.

Most people's music collections are stuck on a PC far away from the TV and the best speakers in the house. If you're a geek you can buy a home server, set it up, cable it to your TV and leave it running 24 hours a day. It is expensive to buy, setup, and maintain (you'll need it running all the time) and even if you do all of this, you may not even have basic functionality like a remote control. Now there's a new way using Roku and MP3tunes.

Roku is an amazing video player that adds enormous capabilities to any TV. Hundreds of thousands of people are using this silent ham sandwich-size box to stream videos from Netflix, buy/rent video from Amazon and now play their iTunes music collection with the MP3tunes channel.

MP3tunes on Roku

MP3tunes has partnered with Roku to create a new free channel available on every Roku which will display their personal iTunes music collection. With a few clicks of the Roku remote, music can be blasting from any home entertainment system with synchronized cover art display. The channel defaults to auto-play in shuffle mode but can also be used to browse and play by artist, album or playlist.

Other music-to-your-TV solutions require a PC/home server to be setup with special software and left running 24 hours a day. The electricity alone can cost $50-$100 per year in addition to the cost of the machine. Roku uses the environmentally friendly MP3tunes cloud service. This web based system stores your iTunes music collection online so that's it's not only safe and secure but you can listen from anywhere - PCs, laptops, Apple and Android devices, and internet radios.

I use my Roku almost daily to play music and play on-demand videos. It is one of the most useful pieces of electronic gear in my house. I also purchased one for every employee of MP3tunes.

Roku and MP3tunes have teamed up to offer you an incredible bundle deal: you get an HD-compatible Roku (which connects wirelessly) plus an MP3tunes music locker (to store up to 50GBs of your music) all for about $69! But, you have to hurry because this is a limited time offer.

My vision with MP3tunes is to get your music collection to everywhere you would want to listen to it. With Roku, the MP3tunes service is extended to every TV.

P.S. Roku uses the MP3tunes API which is a free service that any portable, home or car device can use to connect to MP3tunes. Drop me an email if you have a device you would like to see connect to MP3tunes. iTunes is registered trademark of Apple Inc. MP3tunes is not part of Apple. Neither is Roku. We haven't talked to Apple about this new service, but we're pretty sure they wouldn't be that excited.
