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.
