Amazon Prime Video launches on Apple TV

Amazon Prime Video app rolling out to Apple TV App Store

Though you'll need to be using a 3rd-generation Apple TV or later, you can now download the official tvOS app for Amazon Prime Video.

Prime members can now access thousands of titles through the Prime Video app on Apple TV 4K and previous generations of Apple TV, including Prime Original Series and Movies such as "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" and "The Big Sick", with additional titles coming to the service every month.

Amazon Prime Video is one of the most eagerly anticipated apps to come to Apple TV, so we're excited to bring all of that great content to customers.

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. Now, Amazon's Prime Video app is finally rolling out on the tvOS app store. Join our Cord Cutting Tech Support Facebook Group for help.

9to5Mac reports that the Amazon Prime Video app does not show up in Apple TV Search at present, but it is expected to do so when the rollout is completed.

There were lots of news breaks over the past few years suggesting this day was going to be arriving soon, but a pretty consistent back and forth between two of the world's largest and most successful companies got really complicated.

This is something of a boon for the Apple TV - having Amazon Prime alongside other popular streaming platforms such as Netflix and Hulu means it's more in line with the competition and more of an attractive streaming proposition to Amazon Prime subscribers.

iPhone X users will be happy to know screen support is also available today as well.

Amazon and Google compete in voice-activated smart speakers, streaming video devices and online video services. Originally, the iPhone maker said the app would hit Apple TV sometime in the summer. It's also important to note that the app comes with support for Apple TV's Universal Search feature, so the TV shows and movies that users searched for will show up on the Apple TV interface.
