Apple Music on Roku
Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal and other music streaming apps are already available on the Roku platform. Apple struck a deal with Roku in late 2019 to bring the Apple TV app, including Apple TV+, to Roku devices and the launch of Apple Music is an extension of the partnership.
Apple and Roku are competitors in the field of TV platforms. Roku claims to be America's number one TV streaming platform as measured in hours streaming. Roku reported 61.3 million active accounts as of the end of Q1 2022.
Apple Music costs $10 per month after a 1-month free trial.
