Amazon Prime Video arrives on Apple TV at long last

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

You can download Prime Video from the App Store on your Apple TV. Even if you don't subscribe to Prime, Amazon Video might still be worth a look, as it offers the first episodes of Amazon Original TV shows for free, for all users. But the decision always came with a caveat-unlike other set-top streamers, like Roku or Fire TV, Apple TV couldn't stream Amazon Prime Video.

If the addition of Prime Video to Apple TV weren't reason enough to celebrate, the Amazon Prime iOS app was just updated to support the iPhone X and its troublesome display notch.

Starting Wednesday, Amazon Prime users will be able to more easily watch movies and TV shows directly on Apple TV, rather than using a workaround to mirror content from an iPhone or another Apple device via AirPlay.

The support for Apple TV comes with the 5.0 update to the Amazon Prime Video app. Amazon Prime Video has gone live for Apple TV, with just a few weeks to spare in Apple's promise that it would be here before the end of 2017. There's also a new Sports tab in the Apple TV app which is home to information about teams, leagues and on-going games.

Apple TV users have always been demanding the app, but the unstable relationship between the two companies delayed the process. The app works with third generation Apple TVs or newer.

The Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV is now available for download. As for Apple, this could open the doors for Amazon to once again start selling the Apple TV on its store, as pointed out by The Verge. "And they're going to return it", said Bezos at the 2016 Code Conference.

Non-Prime content, while searchable, cannot be bought through the app, but can be linked to your Amazon account for viewing through it.
