Does anyone know how I can turn on home sharing on my ipad air and my I phone

I am trying to connect them to my new Apple TV

When I try to turn it on

It says I need to subscribe to iCloud

iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.2

    Welcome to the Apple Community.


    You can't use home sharing between a mobile and the Apple TV and you don't need to use iCloud for home sharing anyway.


    It's AirPlay you need to use to share content from a mobile to the Apple TV.


    Basic AirPlay: Assuming both devices are on the same network and that AirPlay is not turned off on the Apple TV, then simply tap on the screen when you are watching content you wish to stream to your Apple TV, then tap the airplay icon that appears in the control bar, choose the Apple TV from the menu that appears.

    Mirroring: When displaying the content you wish to mirror on the iPad 2 (or better), iPad Mini, iPhone 4S (or better), swipe from the bottom of the screen, tap the AirPlay icon and choose your Apple TV from the list of devices (iOS 7 or better) or double tap the home button (quickly) and swipe the bottom row of apps to the right to reveal the playback controls, tap the AirPlay icon and select your Apple TV from the list of available devices (pre-iOS7)
