    Amazon Prime comes to Apple TV - at last!

    After over nine months of rumourd, the Amazon Prime App has been released for Apple TV. It was always possible to use airplay to stream to an Apple TV from an iphone or ipad, but this is a native application.

    I have no doubt that this will be of little interest to users of other devices that already have access to Amazon Prime Video, but for those using Apple TV, it is good news. It runs on both the 4th and the latest $K versions (and possibly on earlier ones too.

    I guess a deal was done as Amazon are now selling the 4K version of the Apple TV.

    Why anyone bought Apple TV is beyond me, a high price for a priority ecosystem that offers less than the competition.

    Re: Amazon Prime comes to Apple TV - at last!

    I’ve never quite got why people think Apple products are ‘cool’ and ‘hip’ - whatever that means.

    Still, if that’s your perception, crack on! However, paragraph 2 of my original post probably applies!

    Re: Amazon Prime comes to Apple TV - at last!

    I get Amazon Prime video as part of my Prime package. I don’t use it a lot, although I may well do now!

    I can’t comment on Netflix - most of my TV viewing is from first 18 channels on Freesat.

    Re: Amazon Prime comes to Apple TV - at last!

    Yeah I have sky (was a cheap initial year - now not so much!) I like the music channels but honestly I watch very little TV. Might just leave it at that.
