It’s time to celebrate. Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV is no longer fiction. It’s now a reality after what many would consider a six-month delay.
Available through the Apple TV App Store, the Amazon Prime Video app allows Prime members to stream unlimited movies and TV shows. What you cannot do is purchase or rent non-Prime titles from the app. The Amazon Prime Video app for iOS also has this restriction. To view newly purchased or rented content from the app, you must first make your purchase via Amazon.com.
The impending arrival of Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV was first announced by Apple CEO Tim Cook in June. At the time, he would only say the service would arrive on the device “later this year.” The Apple TV 4K is largely expected to go on sale on Amazon.com following today’s move.
For over two years, Amazon has banned the sale of Apple TV on Amazon.com.
Here’s a brief look at Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV:
