Originally announced in June as “coming soon,” the Amazon Prime Video app is now available on Apple TV.
The new app allows Amazon Prime members to stream a variety of movies and TV shows, including Prime Originals like The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, and many more directly on their Apple TV devices (requires Apple TV 3rd generation or later).
The app is pretty well hidden for now, with no promotion from Apple just yet, but it’s there. It can be found simply by searching the Apple TV App Store. So, download it before the rush!
Currently, there is no sign of Apple TV units for sale via Amazon.com, as some has suspected might be the case.
MacDailyNews Take: Finally!!!
And just in the nick of time, too:
Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV beta testing continues, release date still unknown – December 1, 2017
Where is the Apple TV’s Amazon Prime Video app? – November 2, 2017
Is this for 4th generation only? It seems that things like FilmStruck, Amazon Prime and others are not here for thoise of us with 3rd generation AppleTV. I got my 3rd Generation in 2015 and feel left out.
The App Store isn’t available on Apple TV 3rd generation or earlier. The App Store is a feature of the fourth generation Apple TV and later, but the app requires Apple TV 3rd generation or later, so Apple will likely push the new app to your 3rd gen. Apple TV.
Actually, it IS available for AppleTV 3rd generation via software update. Update to the latest version and it should show up on your screen.
Downloaded it this morning and all seems to be good. Apple TV 3
It’s available for Apple TV 3rd gen, but apple pushes those apps to the system directly. There is no App Store, I still have one 3rd gen in my basement and it is on there. Unless it’s a mistake, it seems like it’s available for 3rd gen as wel.
Day late and a dollar short.
Can someone tell me if there’s a family share option for movies/shows, and how it works?
Meanwhile Eddie Cue is working on Planet of the Apps The Sequel with The Beater Dre and Jimmy Iovine.
I can’t get it to work on the 4th Gen Apple TV. I just get an internet connection error message. Bad code from Amazon.
Hey MDN: Just fun time for The Grand Tour!!! Loving the app so far!
