At Mixcloud we love reshaping the way people around the world listen to long-form music and speech radio. So we’re excited to reveal that we’ve expanded our service by launching our bespoke app on Apple’s new Apple TV.
With our 13 million monthly listeners, we thought it was high time we lined up alongside online media giants such as Netflix, Vimeo and YouTube, by getting our hand into the mainstream TV market, ahead of SoundCloud, Spotify and Deezer.
It’s all about giving you the best and most comfortable ways to listen to and enjoy your favourite Mixcloud shows, Podcasts and DJ mixes, which you can now access from the comfort of your living room.
Mat Clayton, Co-founder of Mixcloud: “We’re excited to be on the new Apple TV platform as it launches. The living room is a big opportunity for Mixcloud. We launched our Sonos app in beta earlier this year and Apple TV is the next part of our strategy to go big in the home. We’ve got a great catalogue of shows to entertain people at home both alone and with friends, and we’ve built the product to be simple and intuitive with a more lean back experience than our other apps.”
People are consuming music in a wide variety of ways, and we want to give you – the consumer – the flexibility to enjoy streaming audio from your TV, as well as our mobile apps, and the more traditional web browser.
There are millions of hours of quality audio on Mixcloud to suit any occasion – from dinner party to chill out, from politics, science, technology, food, to full-on partying – and you can search at leisure straight from the comfort of your couch.
Feedback from users of our Apple TV app has so far has been great, one Twitter user said: “@T888_SCB: New @mixcloud app on the Apple TV is sick. Can listen to all my favourite @DJRUSSKE Mixes”
