How to Add or Switch Between Multiple Accounts on Your Apple TV

 

Since the new Apple TV is meant for rooms — family rooms, classrooms, meeting rooms—it needs to support more than one person. That means it needs to support more than one Apple ID (iTunes/App Store account) at a time.

Here’s how to add multiple accounts to your Apple TV:

Adding Multiple Accounts to Apple TV

Before you can use multiple accounts, you need to log into any and all additional accounts you want available.

STEP 1: From your Home screen, go to Settings.

STEP 2: Click on Accounts.

STEP 3: Click on iTunes and App Store.

STEP 4: Click on Add new Apple ID.

STEP 5: Enter the additional Apple ID username.

STEP 6: Click on Continue.

STEP 7: Enter the additional Apple ID password.

STEP 8: Click on Sign In.

If you already have multiple accounts, and would like to switch to another account on your Apple TV, follow the steps below:

While you have multiple accounts you can only use one account at a time. That means switching!

STEP 1: From your Home screen, go to Settings.

STEP 2: Click on Accounts.

STEP 3: Click on iTunes and App Store.

STEP 4: Click on the account you want to use.

You’ll now be able to download or re-download any apps or content available on that account.
