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

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

CEO Jeff Bezos stopped selling them unless Amazon Prime Video was an option on the box. Some have already speculated that Amazon will start selling Apple TVs on its site again. This is great news for everyone, and should also help raise awareness that Amazon has a fantastic video library available for all Prime subscribers.

New Year is about to come and in the wake of it, the technology giant Apple has committed to fulfill the two promises to its loyal customers. Customers in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Austria will also be able to watch videos from subscription services (like HBO, Showtime or Eurosport in Europe) paid for on Amazon.

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.

Both Amazon Prime Video and YouTube are available on Roku, a streaming stick not manufactured by tech industry behemoths.

Finally, on Wednesday, Apple TV users got what they have been wanting for a long time. This means Apple TV users can now access the service by looking for Amazon Prime Video on their device's App Store, launching the app and signing in to their Amazon account for instant streaming. The app is rolling out in the U.S., the U.K., Canada and possibly more locations.

Amazon's streaming service has finally arrived on Apple's media player.

If you've been using Prime Video for iOS, then this should come as no surprise, but you won't be able to buy content through the app on your Apple TV.

Amazon announced the app's availability today (Dec. 6), and laid out all the salient points. So, it will be interesting to see if this also changes following the launch of the Prime Video app on Apple TV.
