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.
I’m setting this request back to “Open” since tvOS now allows developers to create Apple TV apps. We’d love to add a SmugMug app for Apple TV but will have to balance it with our iOS, and Android development, as well as the feature requests for native OS apps.

When my friends are over for dinner and want to see some photos, my only choice is to use airplay and that is slow and poor resolution. I believe most of the code from the iOS version should move over. I think it's at least as important as your smartphone apps and perhaps even more so.
Yes to the AppleTV 4 app! Please!

I would love, love a SmugMug app for the new Spple TV (ATV4). Thanks!
There is nothing to balance - first step is to release app for ATV. Most of the code can be reused from iOS client so please focus on this and let us informed ....
Me Too. SmugMug on AppleTV please!

Please add my enthusiastic vote to build an interface between SmugMug and Apple TV.

When Apple threw in with Flickr, I started uploading to Flickr. Flickr was deeply integrated into Aperture and AppleTV. Since then, I've kept my SmugMug account intact, but it's dormant. I'd love to drop Flickr and come back to SmugMug, but there will need to be an AppleTV SmugMug "channel" similar to (better than) Flickr's.

Thanks for keeping this "dream" alive. I love Smug Mug. Its hands down the most elegant photo display and management system around. Its become the one place I can depend on to access, download and share photos quickly, and still feel like I can control who sees and does not see images.
I use Apple TV at home and at the studio with the family and clients. Right now I have to also use the Roku box, to see Smug Mug on a large screen TV.
It works ok but it would be so great to get down to "one box" with what I imagine will be a beautiful interface.
As always, you're customer service exceeds expectations

Are you accepting feature requests?
SmugMug do it, pull the trigger to be on the new Apple TV. We photographers out here that love SmugMug will help make you shine with our photography. I have been wanting SmugMug on Apple TV for a long time.
What do you need from us to help with this merger onto Apple TV?

I'm convinced that Apple opened up tvOS just for SmugMug to develop an app!
Please revisit this. Apple now has an API (tv os) and planned App Store with the release of the next generation of the Apple TV in November 2015. I think this would be a true benefit for others—in the way that Vimeo has an app for Apple TV for pro video users, photographers should have this ability with a SmugMug App and Photos capability on the Apple TV.
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!
