    I am very close to purchasing the new Apple TV.

    However, just wanted to ask a question to a few of you that have already bought one.

    I have iTunes match ($20 a year), but not Apple Music. I liked the trial, but after 3 months, just wasn't using it enough to justify spending $10 a month.

    So, on my Apple TV 3, under "music", as long as I'm logged into with my iTunes account, I see ALL my music on my Apple TV 3.

    Now I see Apple Music is available on the Apple TV 4. Do I NEED to buy Apple Music in order to enjoy my music library that's in the cloud via iTunes Match?

    Or does the Apple TV 4, still allow me to JUST use iTunes Match to access my entire music library?

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes. I have Match but not Music. Once you turn on iCloud Music, your entire library is available on the ATV4 under "My Music"

    I can confirm what Rigby says. In my case I have Apple Music (but use it only for streaming) and iTunes match for my music collection and Apple TV see my iTunes match songs without issue.

    Yes, match works. I've noticed that with updates on my unit it shuts it off every so often and you simply have to turn it on. Its weird.
