Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV has yet to happen. With just weeks to go in 2017, it’s beginning to look like this arrival won’t occur this year as Apple CEO Tim Cook once promised. A new Reddit post suggests the project isn’t dead yet, however.
As first highlighted by AppleInsider, two Reddit users on Wednesday claiming to be Amazon employees have said they’ve had access to the beta of Amazon Prime Video for the Apple TV. They also included the screenshot shown below.
AppleInsider confirms the Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV beta program has been ongoing since July in “one form or another.” However, there’s been little movement “as of late.”
Cook celebrated the arrival of Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June. At the time, he said the service would arrive “later this year.” At the same time, Cupertino’s entertainment box was expected to once again be offered through the online retailer.
For over two years, Amazon has banned the sale of Apple TV on Amazon.com. At the same time, Amazon has refused to add the company’s Prime video service to Apple’s set-top box. That was supposed to change soon after the June announcement.
We’re in the heart of the holiday shopping season and it makes zero sense why Amazon and Apple can’t get together on this. It’s a no-brainer bringing Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV and offering the Apple TV 4K on Amazon.com would be a win-win for both companies.
