Despite its public spat with Google, Amazon has announced that the Prime Video app is now officially available on the Apple TV in over 100 countries. It’s not just available on the new Apple TV 4K either, as it will also support previous generations of the set-top box.
Prime Video has been available on fewer platforms than its competitor Netflix, although has been making moves in order to fix that gap. While it doesn’t seem that the streaming video service will support Google Cast streaming anytime soon, at least those in Apple’s ecosystem will be able to take advantage of the thousands of TV shows and movies that are available on the service.
In the US, UK, Germany and Austria, Prime Video subscribers can also enjoy some of their favourite TV channels, with over 140 channel subscriptions available in the US, and 95 in the other locales. Amazon’s support for HDR is also ideal for those with an Apple TV 4K, as the set-top box supports Dolby Vision.
“There is nothing that excites us more than delighting our customers, and we are thrilled for them to stream Prime Video on Apple TV,” says Mark Eamer, vice president of Prime Video.
“The app arrives just in time for the highly anticipated new season of The Grand Tour, which launches on December 8th, and Prime Video members streaming on the Apple TV 4K will have the exceptional viewing experience of 4K HDR.”
