After being teased earlier this year that Amazon Prime Video would be finding its way onto the Apple TV, the good news is that Apple TV users won’t have to wait anymore because Amazon has since announced that the Prime Video app is now available for the Apple TV, although you will require an Amazon Prime subscription to really take advantage of it.
According to Amazon, “Amazon today announced the Prime Video app is available on Apple TV 4K and previous generations of Apple TV in over 100 countries. Prime Video members now have even more ways to stream award-winning and critically-acclaimed titles including Amazon Original Movies, Prime Originals and Hollywood blockbusters and TV series and over 140 Channel subscriptions in the US and 95 in the UK, Germany and Austria.”
The app will also be accessible via the Apple TV’s “TV” app, which basically consolidates several video streaming services into a single app, so that users won’t have to jump around the different apps if they’d like to watch shows from different services. According to Eddy Cue, Apple’s senior vice president of Internet Software and Services, “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.”
