Aerial screen savers on your Apple TV

Enjoy breathtaking Aerials of locations shot all over the world and from space. Get location information with just a tap and switch to a different Aerial with a swipe — all on your Apple TV.


 

Start an Aerial screen saver

Your Apple TV displays a screen saver after it's idle for a certain number of minutes. You can start the screen saver at anytime. Just go to the top-left corner of the Home screen on your Apple TV and press the Menu button on your Apple TV Remote.

To change the number of minutes before a screen saver starts, go to Settings > General > Screen Saver and select Start After.

Aerial screen savers aren't available on Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation).

Find out where an Aerial was filmed

Ever wonder which city or location you’re watching in an Aerial screen saver? With tvOS 12, you can see the location of an Aerial.

While an Aerial is playing, just tap the Touch surface on your Apple TV Remote.

Switch to a different Aerial screen saver

While an Aerial is playing, you can switch between locations on your Apple TV. Just swipe right or left on the Touch surface of your Apple TV Remote.

If you're listening to music on your Apple TV while an Aerial is playing, tap the right or left side of the Touch surface to play the next or previous song.

You can't choose a specific Aerial to play on your Apple TV. But you can set how often new Aerials are downloaded. Just go to Settings > General > Screen Saver and select Download New Video.

The number of Aerials that you can download depends on how much storage is available on your Apple TV. To manage storage on your Apple TV, go to Settings > General > Manage Storage.
