SmugMug Photos on AppleTV
I would love to see SmugMug integrate photo streaming with Apple TV like Flickr and Mobile Me
Integrate SmugMug into the Apple TV.
Stream Smugmug photos to Apple TV
Now with iOS 4.2 and the new AppleTV, it is possible to "beam" photos from the iPhone and iPad photo album to a TV directly.
Please add the AirPlay functionality to the Smugmug iPad app so we do not have to download the photos first, switch to the photo viewer, and then view them via AirPlay.
This is something we’d love to do, however, Apple doesn’t currently have an API or an Apple TV App Store. Apple would have to agree to include “SmugMug” as one of the few available apps. We’re also planning on adding support for the upcoming Apple Photos app (since Aperture is no longer being updated) at some point in the future. If Apple does ever open an App Store for the Apple TV we’d love to add support!
Also, hop on over to Apple’s feedback form and let them know you’d like to have SmugMug on AppleTV! https://www.apple.com/feedback/appletv.html
Is a SmugMug Apple TV app being developed since Apple TV introduced tvOS last week? It is now only a matter of time, yes?
"Starting today, developers can access the tvOS SDK via a new Xcode beta to begin creating games and apps for the Apple TV." (http://www.macrumors.com/2015/09/09/apple-announces-fourth-gen-apple-tv/)

I'd like to see this feature too, as all of my photos that I want to see are already on smugmug. I followed the suggestion and sent the feedback to Apple, as I think they are the roadblock here.
would love this. smug mug please do it!
It's an absolute necessity as I see it as well. No progress yet!

They need to do it or I'll be moving my photo mgt elsewhere. Simple as that.
Have you approached Apple about an official offering? They are adding new content partners all of the time.

SmugMug Guru's. I would take most of these comments/recommendations and take them up a notch. I feel like 3rd part Apps are fine - but rarely have the polish they could have if you put the time and energy into them yourself. Please create mobile AND tablet versions of a SmugMug App for photos and video. Once these are done simply add the few lines of code to make them ChromeCast compliant. Next, please make an official Roku App. An AppleTV App would be awesome too - however, if the native App for mobile and tablet are working well then we can always AirPlay. And while you're at it - you might check into Xbox360/XboxOne/PS4 Apps! Absolutely LOVE your platform - just keep moving forward!

Please add chromecast ability as soon as Google opens it up to everyone, which should be very soon.
This is probably an Apple limitation than a SmugMug one. Roku lets anyone create a channel so you see 3rd party SmugMug channel on there. Apple TV only lets Apple approved channels so I doubt you'll see anything until they open it up like they've done with the Apple Apps and Mac Apps stores.

Just add Airplay and slideshow functionality to the app for iPhone/iPad and that is enough. And totally under the control of SmugMug (aside from Apple's blessing to have the app in the AppStore). Getting a SmugMug app on the AppleTV list of apps may be a bridge to far but this would work immediately.

It's absolutely ridiculous that my SmugMug images cannot be viewed on my AppleTV interface. PLEASE SMUGMUG, make it so! It's a total drag to have to reload my Smugmug photos to iPhoto!
Patrick Coleman commented
please add apple tv support - they have flikr available but no smuggy.

I agree that an Apple TV app for SmugMug is needed and the best idea. At the moment SmugView app works well for me w/ airplay.
I definitely would like to see this capability. Even checked if there is a simple sync between SM and Flckr (couldn't find one).
me too. i know it's an Apple thing. maybe I can do a workaround...
Would love to see smugmug integrate with Apple TV
Me too please, so annoying to see the Flickr logo but no SM access via my Apple TV.
