Apple TV Adds Amazon Prime Video

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.

Amazon launched its Prime Video app Tuesday on Apple TV and Apple TV 4K. In fact, it was at WWDC 2017 in June that the company first told users to expect Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV.

"There is nothing that excites us more than delighting our customers, and we are thrilled for them to stream Prime Video on Apple TV", said Mark Eamer, Vthe VP of Prime Video.

Starting Wednesday, Amazon Prime users will be able to more easily watch movies and TV shows directly on Apple TV, rather than using a workaround to mirror content from an iPhone or another Apple device via AirPlay. Google outlined the reason for removal as Amazon's unwillingness to sell the former's products on its portal. You can then use Siri voice search to search for a film or TV show and the box will show a selection - you don't have to specify you want to watch it from Prime Video because Siri will search all app catalogues for your desired show.

While Apple, Google and Amazon all bicker with each other about how they deliver and distribute each other's products and services, other streaming platforms are also increasingly tetchy about the way the big three tech/web giants organise their respective platforms so to favour their own music and video services.

Alphabet's Google pulled support for its YouTube video service from Amazon.com's streaming-media devices, citing the internet retailer's failure to make Amazon Prime Video available through Google's gadgets and the recent halt of the sale of some Nest products on its website.

A statement from Amazon on Tuesday didn't address Google's claims.

YouTube might soon disappear from your Amazon streaming device. As you might know Nest is now a Google subsidiary.

Amazon said in a statement, "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website". The more Apple TVs the company gets into living rooms, the more people are likely to rent or buy movies and TV shows, or buy an app to play on their TV. But it's certainly not helping Amazon or its consumers for the company to limit its selection - particularly cutting out such popular competing products as Apple TV - without real justification. Google, meanwhile, said that "Amazon's implementation of YouTube on the Echo Show violates our terms of service". As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon.
