“Apple TV users will finally be able to stream Amazon Prime Video this year”
Apple kicked off its WWDC 2017 keynote by announcing upgrades to its four key operating systems – iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS, alongside a couple of hardware announcements. In addition, the company has also announced that it is finally bringing Amazon Prime Video to Apple TV and the TV app.
Apple and Amazon’s partnership will see the arrival of the latter’s video app to the Apple TV streaming box. Amazon Prime Video users will be able to stream TV shows and movies using the Apple TV device later this year. The app will let users stream Amazon original hits including Mozart in the Jungle, Bosch, The King in the High Castle, Catastrophe, and more.
Apple CEO Tim Cook didn’t provide the exact availability detail of Amazon Prime Video for tvOS, but he did mention that it will be released sometime later this year.
The Cupertino giant has also released the first beta of the new tvOS 11 operating system for Apple TV to developers. tvOS 11 comes with automatic light / dark appearance switching, Home screen syncing options, new background modes, and more.
