Amazon Prime Video launches on Apple TV

Posted December 07, 2017

Amazon didn't "want to sell it to our customers, because they're going to be buying it thinking they can watch Prime Video and then they're going to be disappointed". The tvOS app is now available through 3rd Generation and later Apple TV models. All you have to do is install the app. The lack of an official Amazon Prime Video app on the Apple TV until now has often been attributed to Amazon and Apple's competing interests in the media player and streaming services market.

Cupertino's original refusal to publish the Prime Video app was surprising given the company had embraced it on iOS.

At the time of this writing, the app is not appearing in the "Featured" section of the Apple TV AppStore nor is it appearing in the "Shopping" category.

Although we were able to download it this morning, according to a report by 9to5Mac, the Amazon Prime Video app may not show up for all users in a tvOS app store search. Though plenty of other video service have been available on Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video has been missing until today. Starting tomorrow, Prime members in the United States can enjoy Thursday Night Football on the Apple TV app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

Starting today Apple says the Amazon Prime app will finally be available for Apple TV. This will allow users to stream Amazon original series and movies

Apple had announced the app was coming at WWDC in June, but it's taken a further six months to go live.

Now, we can expect Amazon to start selling Apple TV again as well.

On Tuesday, Google said it would block its YouTube video app on Amazon devices because the online retailer is not selling Google hardware, such as Chromecast streaming dongles, Google Home smart speakers and Nest smart home devices.

"Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website", a statement from Amazon said.
