Watching hayu on any of Apple's popular streaming set-top boxes is simple, fast and offers the good old-fashioned convenience of a dedicated remote control. The only thing standing between you and a sizeable library of top-tier TV is the set-up process. With our help, said process will be a short hurdle indeed, so let's get into it.
How to connect your Apple TV to your hayu account
After you've properly configured your Apple TV, as per the instructions that it comes with, the first step is to locate and download the official hayu app. From your Apple TV home screen, click the "App Store" option. Next, tap on the search function and type in "hayu". When it pops up in the results, tap "Get" to initiate the download and auto-install process.
When the app pops up on your home screen, that means it's installed and ready to go. Click into it and look for the "Sign In" option, which will allow you to enter your existing hayu account details. Don't have any? Use the "New Account" feature of the app to enter your personal details and a payment option to join the service.
Once you're logged in, there's a pairing process. Log onto the official hayu website (www.hayu.com) and click on "Account" in the upper-right corner. Next, go to "Settings" and click on the link called "Pair My TV App".
Enter the code shown on your device and you're all set! Apple TV will now deliver you non-stop hayu action.

What's the resolution for hayu on Apple TV?
720p is supported by the first two generations of Apple TV, so if you're using one of these slightly antiquated models that will be the maximum resolution you'll be able to get away with. However, Apple TV devices that are 3rd generation or higher support 1080p HD.
Be aware, though, that your viewing experience will be at the mercy of your Internet connection. You'll also need decent Internet speeds to stream in HD. As a guide, hayu requires an Internet connection speed of at least 1Mbps with a recommended speed of at least 3Mbps.
Subtitles and audio
Subtitles and captions for hayu on Apple TV are displayed in the lower half of the screen. To save or adjust your settings, play the TV show or movie for at least five minutes and your preferences will be set. To change your actual subtitles appearance settings, you need to log into your hayu account and change them through there.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
