Amazon Prime Video hits Apple TV

In the past, we've seen listings briefly appear, and we can't imagine it'll be too long before Amazon restores the Apple TV to its store. With this addition of the Amazon Prime Video app on the Apple TV, it ends a long standoff between Amazon and Apple.

Amazon Prime Video support was promised at Apple's WWDC conference in June. In addition to licensed movies and TV shows, Prime Video offers a lineup of original movies and series from Amazon Studios, as well as access to 140 channel subscriptions in the USA and 95 channels in the U.K., Germany and Austria. Join our Cord Cutting Tech Support Facebook Group for help. This suggests Cupertino had big plans for the Apple TV app in the coming year. In fact, Amazon still does not offer Apple streaming devices for purchase through its site - though that could change now that the Apple TV offers Prime Video.

First introduced in late 2016, the Apple TV app is available for iOS devices and Apple TV. Apple boasts that "Siri can now search 1.3 million TV episodes and movies on Apple TV". We're downloading the app now and will update with hands-on impressions.

The Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV is now available for download.

The tvOS 11.2 software update will allow Apple TV 4K customers to choose between having video converted to the best format their TV can support or outputting the video in its original frame rate and dynamic range.

The move comes amid growing tensions between Amazon and Google; just yesterday, Google revealed it is pulling YouTube from Amazon's Fire TV and Echo Show, after the firm refused to sell Google's competing devices.

The 4K Apple TV costs £179 for a 32GB model, £199 for a version with 64GB of storage. Now, with the new app, it will be far more convenient for users to enjoy their favorite shows and movies on the Prime Video.
