Amazon Prime Video Features On Apple TV

In a statement, a Google representative said it's taking the action because the YouTube apps on Amazon products aren't made by Google, like the YouTube app on the iPhone is, and the retail giant doesn't sell some Google products, such as Chromecast and Google Home.

It's nice to see two would-be rivals partnering up for the greater good of the consumer. Amazon Prime Video will be available on the current generation of Apple TVs, which support 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR), as well as previous generations in over 100 countries.

Amazon retorted that Google is setting a "disappointing precedent" by imposing a no-go zone around what's otherwise "an open website" on every device in the universe that doesn't carry the Amazon brand. They say Amazon is not playing fair with Google. For now, it's a bit hard to find in traditional Apple TV search. Currently, Apple's original content consists of shows such as Carpool Karaoke and the inane reality TV competition Planet of the Apps, which pales in comparison to the kind of award-winning programming Netflix and Amazon have been developing, such as Stranger Things and Transparent.

Apple TV owners will have access to Amazon Original Movies and Prime Originals such as The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Tick along with the upcoming premieres of Jean-Claude Van Johnson on December 15 and Phillip K. Dick's Electric Dreams on January 12.

Amazon Prime Video finally arrives on Apple TV, but don't hold your breath for Chromecast support.

With 15 minutes to go, Tottenham and Eriksen wasted a golden opportunity to get themselves back into the game . Their fast start was soon rewarded with the opening goal inside 12 minutes.

As streaming becomes more and more prevalent, more and more options to stream content become available. If that happens, Fire TV owners can still watch on a phone, tablet or personal computer.

Yesterday, Apple sent out a press release announcing that the drought was over: Amazon Prime Video would now roll out on Apple TV.

Having a Prime Membership will also give you access to Prime Music, let you buy concert tickets on Prime Live Events, have unlimited reading on a selection book through Prime Reading as well as unlimited One-Day Delivery on items purchased on Amazon. Amazon joined Apple TV on Wednesday. You can always get the player on the device. It also has YouTube, but not Google Play.

Apple TV 4K isn't the best for United Kingdom sports fans either. There's room for both Amazon and Apple to thrive, especially since video is just one facet of Amazon Prime. The basic device is $149; a version with 4K and HDR costs $30 more.
