Amazon Prime Video App And Apple TV Finally Come Together

Amazon Prime Video Lands on Apple TV in Canada, Adds iPhone X Support

Apple also announced in a statement that Amazon Prime members in the United States can watch the NFL's "Thursday Night Football" and other live events on the Apple TV app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

Right now, as we're just a few weeks away from 2018, so most probably Amazon and Apple sure are cutting it close here. All you have to do is install the app.

Presently, if a user tries to buy a film or TV show via Amazon's iOS app, he or she is directed to Amazon's website. The launch has been a long time coming, with Apple CEO Tim Cook first announcing the partnership between the two tech giants at Apple's developer conference in June.

For Amazon, this provides another way for customers to access the company's growing streaming video catalog that is accessible via the $99/year or $10.99/month Prime membership program.

News of Apple and Amazon settling their differences comes as Alphabet (GOOGL)-owned Google is engaged with its own dispute with Amazon over streaming video.

Also starting this week, the Apple TV app - a unified place for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV users to discover and start watching the best shows and movies - supports live sports, giving fans in the USA a simple and seamless way to keep track of their favorite teams and games in real time. Prime Video requires tvOS 11.1 or higher, which can be downloaded in Settings System Software Update on your Apple TV. Summer came, but the app was nowhere to be found. Apple then issued an update saying the app's release was moved to September, but that didn't happen as well. "Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and Fire TV".

Google says Amazon is refusing to work with it on an official YouTube app for the platform and claims the current one provides users with a "broken experience".

It would, he explained, be disappointing for Amazon customers to purchase a product from its site only to find it didn't support Amazon's services.
