On our new Apple TV app, you can play a talk or opt to “watch later.” All talks that you save for future viewing are synced with your TED.com account, so you can watch them on your desktop or on your television screen.

A cure for those what-do-I-watch-now moments: starting today, TED is on Apple TV. In our beautifully designed new Apple TV channel, you can watch TED’s full library of talks (1900+ of them and counting) and our expanding collection of playlists (more than 200 of them, from “Architectural inspiration” to “Talks to watch when every conceivable bad thing has just happened to you”). When you finish a talk or playlist, another is instantly queued up for you, for proper binge-ability.

Perhaps the coolest feature: Apple TV now links with your TED.com profile, so you can queue up talks you want to watch later. Let’s say you see our TED Talk of the Day online while you’re at work, but you don’t have time to check it out. Hit the “Watch later” button (it looks like a little watch face), and it will be waiting for you on your Apple TV when you get home.

On our new Apple TV app, browse our 200+ playlists. We add new lists every week.

The TED programming was designed in-house to be a smooth and entertaining way to watch TED Talks on your HDTV. You can browse talks and playlists by title or topic (like “technology,” “design” or “happiness”) or by the kind of talks you’d like to watch (like “funny,” “jaw-dropping” or “beautiful”). All talks come with subtitles, some in as many as 105 languages.
