Apple TV Finally Snags Amazon Prime Video

Apple TV Finally Snags Amazon Prime Video

A tvOS (Apple TV's operating system) version of the video app is available on third-generation Apple TV devices or later, so you should be in the clear if you purchased one in the last five years or so. It works on Apple TV models from the 3rd generation and up.

On the Apple TV 4K, the party gets really hot as the app fully supports 4K UHD playback as well as HDR.

Also starting this week, the Apple TV app - a unified place for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV users to discover and start watching the best shows and movies - supports live sports, giving fans in the United States a simple and seamless way to keep track of their favorite teams and games in real time.

After years of waiting, Prime Video is available now for free. Just as well, it appears that the iOS Prime Video App has been updated to play nice with the iPhone X.




After installing the app, users are asked to log in to their Prime account either via the device or on the web. The standoff led Amazon to stop selling the Apple TV on its retail site in 2015, as Recode noted.

This is good news for Amazon and Apple customers who have had to forego a less than friendly relationship between the two companies. At the time, Amazon also confirmed the news via a tweet. A few months later, Apple again acknowledged the impending release, but gave no specific release date.

Starting Thursday, Prime Video subscribers can also watch Thursday Night Football live through the app. The app is rolling out in the U.S., the U.K., Canada and possibly more locations. In explaining the move, a Google rep cited Amazon's unwillingness to strike a business deal to sell the internet giant's Chromecast, Google Home and Nest devices. Roku makes set-top boxes and dongles and has a smart TV software platform that supports all the major streaming video services. "And they're going to return it", said Bezos at the 2016 Code Conference.
