Amazon Prime Video is Now on Apple TV

Amazon Prime Video is, at long last, available to stream on Apple TV.

Amazon announced Tuesday that the Prime Video app is available on Apple TV 4K set-tops — as well as third-generation models of Apple TV — in more than 100 countries.

Prime Video members streaming on the Apple TV 4K will be able to access Amazon’s lineup of 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) titles. In addition to licensed movies and TV shows, Prime Video offers a lineup of original movies and series from Amazon Studios, as well as access to 140 channel subscriptions in the U.S. and 95 channels in the U.K., Germany and Austria.

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced at the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference this past June that Amazon Prime Video would be coming to Apple TV later in 2017. The launch of Prime Video on Apple TV was first spotted by the Verge.

A dispute between Amazon and Apple has simmered for years. In October 2015, Amazon stopped selling Apple TVs (as well as Google’s Chromecast), with the company saying that “It’s important that the streaming media players we sell interact well with Prime Video in order to avoid customer confusion.” Now that Apple TV has lit up Prime Video, there’s the question of when Amazon might resume sales of the Apple set-tops.
