I'd like to tell the time with my Apple TV, so I don't have to use a computer. But I can't seem to find a single clock app or screensaver for Apple TV. Anyone know if one exists?

I'm using an Apple TV 3, with Apple TV Software 6.0.


Sorry for the shameless plug, but I made the app just because Apple TV lacks the time: Screen Clock.


On the Apple TV models with apps and Siri (4th & 5th generations)…

Ask Siri

Simply ask Siri for the current time. Hold down the remote button to speak with Siri.

Progress bar

While watching a video in play, tap the touch surface once to see the time remaining to elapse to the end of that show/movie/clip.

Tap again the touch surface to alter the markers on the play progress bar to current time-of-day and estimated time when that show will be done playing if uninterrupted.

  • The second part of your answer doesn't seem to match the question. – nohillside Jan 27 '18 at 8:29
  • @patrix The Question asks to tell time. I showed how a second tap of touch surface shows the current time as you watch a show. Where is the mismatch? – Basil Bourque Jan 27 '18 at 8:37
  • I doubt that the OP wants to start a video just to be able to see the time :-) But ok, while watching one it might be helpful. – nohillside Jan 27 '18 at 8:45
