How to connect Apple AirPods to Apple TV

0

Apple TV is one of our favorite streaming boxes, but that doesn’t mean everyone wants to hear you watch movies late at night. Luckily, it’s possible to plug in a pair of AirPods and move on without disturbing a soul.

If you’ve already paired your AirPods with an iPhone or other Apple product, they should already be set up to work with your Apple TV using your Apple ID, but you’ll still need to use them as an audio option instead of your TV’s speakers or select Soundbar.

Here’s how to do it.
