Some local file and offline cover art stuff got broken in the v1.0 release on iOS. The devs are aware of the issue.

It depends on how you are streaming Spotify to the TV. On my Mac, I use AirFoil and it streams it no problem with the cover art.

Hi Jranalder! 

 

I just tested, and cover art displays on Apple TV when streaming from Spotify on iPad or iPhone. 

 

To get this working, you might want to double check you have the latest versions of Apple TV, iOS and Spotify installed. Hope this helps!

Hi ! Something strange has happened to my cover arts for about 1 month. Some cover arts of my local files are not streamed from my IPad to my Apple TV. I can see them perfectly on my Ipad but the cover does not appear on my TV sceen. It happens only with about 50 % of my local files. Any Ideas ? The music is however heard perfectly with all files.

Not only my local file covers still don't work but the track following a local file don'work at all. Makes no sound. i have to restart it !
Knowing the Apple policy, I wonder if they do that on purpose. So I get often back to ITunes Match to have my music and covers normally on my Apple TV. Shame
