What you may have missed from Apple TV Airplay support article The Apple TV, like most Apple devices, supports Airplay, but it does not allow Apple TV owners to stream movies, music, or TV shows to a Mac.
This is a major issue for people who want to stream their favorite shows to the Mac or other Apple TV devices, but are unable to because of the restrictions of Airplay.
This post outlines how to fix the problem on Macs, including how to stream shows from your Apple TV without Airplay on your Mac.
What you should know about Airplay not being supported on Mac The problem affects Mac users who use Apple TV as a remote control.
AppleTV devices are not the only Apple devices that don’t support Airplay (see the Apple TV FAQ for details).
Many Windows devices also don’t have Airplay built-in, and there are a number of other Apple devices like the Mac Mini that don, too.
Apple has released a patch to fix Airplay issues on the Mac for users who have trouble streaming.
