Amazon brings Prime Video to Apple TV, falls out with Google

Apple TV Apple TV will finally get Amazon Prime Video
Mandy Jefferson | 07 December, 2017, 02:10

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. However Amazon's not done with the launches this week just yet. The update also adds support for the iPhone X and Universal Search. It works on Apple TV models from the 3rd generation and up. Apple and Amazon had a similarly tumultuous relationship, so it's unsurprising that getting Prime on the Apple TV took a long time to pull off. Now, we can also kick back and watch some of the hottest entertainment around with Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV.

After years of waiting, Prime Video is available now for free. Now, with the new app, it will be far more convenient for users to enjoy their favorite shows and movies on the Prime Video.

When buying a streaming device, the Apple TV was always a safe bet.

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. No release date was since mentioned by Apple.

Apple Pay Cash service launches in US
Apple Pay Cash is the company's answer to the likes of Square Cash , Venmo , or even Paypal to some extent. You will be able to send and receive funds from your contacts via a message with the help of Apple Pay.


Prime Video subscribers can manually browse through the programming that's available, or make use of the Siri Remote for voice-activated searching.

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

Prime Video members streaming on the Apple TV 4K will be able to access Amazon's lineup of 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) titles.

Almost six months after Amazon and Apple apparently settled their differences and announced the Prime Video app was coming to Apple TV, the actual app has finally been released. "And they're going to return it".
