Apple TV Finally Addresses Shortcoming, Adds Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video Lands on Apple TV in Canada, Adds iPhone X Support

Amazon's Prime Video application has debuted on Apple TV devices.

In a press release, Apple said Amazon Prime Video is now available in over 100 countries using its Apple TV device.

Starting today, Apple says the Amazon Prime app will finally be available for Apple TV.

However, the latest development has revealed that Apple TV will add the Prime video app. It wasn't until relatively recently at WWDC 2017 when Apple and Amazon belatedly said they had reached an agreement to develop a dedicated tvOS app for the Apple TV. It was still possible to play Prime Video content on an Apple TV, but it required that you stream through AirPlay from another Apple device. Now, we can also kick back and watch some of the hottest entertainment around with Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV.

The iOS app, which was updated to version 5.0 Wednesday, now supports iPhone X and Universal Search. For as long as Amazon Prime Video hasn't been available on Apple TV, Amazon has refused to offer Apple TV devices on its store.

Will Amazon start selling Apple TV again?

This is good news for Amazon and Apple customers who have had to forego a less than friendly relationship between the two companies.

Amazon had been the most high-profile streaming video service absent from Apple TV devices, and competitors like Netflix and Hulu have always been on the device. "And they're going to return it".

After years of waiting, Prime Video is available now for free.

The app is dropping just before Amazon's upcoming NFL Thursday Night matchup between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints, and also in time for the premiere of "The Grand Tour". Now that it has all changed today, let's see how things are going to pan out between Apple and Amazon.
