Amazon Video Might Be Coming To The Apple TV After All

After announcing that Amazon would stop offered a Apple TV, it looks like a association competence be operative on a tvOS app for Apple’s new device after all. Dan Bostonweeks got an email from Amazon observant that a engineering group is now operative on an Apple TV app.

As a reminder, there is already a approach to take advantage of Amazon’s catalog if we have an Apple TV. The iOS app supports AirPlay, vouchsafing we send a video to your TV directly from your iPhone or iPad.

But AirPlay isn’t as gentle as carrying a local app. In particular, a Apple TV lets we hunt for a film regulating Siri and see if this film is accessible on iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, etc. Amazon wants to take advantage of this one hunt experience.

Amazon isn’t opposite a thought of building an Amazon TV app for non-Amazon devices. There is an Amazon Video app on Roku, Xbox and PlayStation devices. But a Apple TV also competes directly with Amazon’s possess device, a Fire TV.

The many expected unfolding is that a Amazon Video app wasn’t prepared for a Apple TV launch. Amazon told Dan Bostonweeks that a app should be prepared “within a few weeks.”

Another unfolding is that it was a good forgive to boost Fire TV sales before Black Friday and a holiday season. The Apple TV and Google Chromecast were private from Amazon listings “in sequence to equivocate patron confusion” as we can use Amazon Video with these services.

So it’s misleading either a Apple TV will be accessible on Amazon once a association releases a Amazon Video app. For instance, Amazon doesn’t sell a iPad directly as it competes with a Fire tablets. But if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber and have been watchful before removing a new Apple TV, this rumored Amazon Video creates a Apple TV some-more appealing.
