Amazon Prime Video is now available on Apple TV

Amazon Prime Video

Both Apple and Amazon have made official announcements this morning about the launch, which brings Prime Video to Apple TV for users in over 100 countries.

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the forthcoming appearance of Amazon Prime Video to the Apple TV earlier this year, but the launch kept getting pushed back for unknown reasons.

(Dow Jones) Amazon.com said on Wednesday that its Prime Video app is now available for Amazon customers to download on Apple's Apple TV streaming devices.

The Amazon Prime Video app requires a subscription to the service to operate, and works with Apple's inbuilt universal search for the 4th Generation and 4K versions of the Apple TV set top box.

Amazon Prime Video allows subscribers to watch movies and TV shows, including The Grand Tour, The Man in the High Castle, and Suits. Join our Cord Cutting Tech Support Facebook Group for help.

At the time of this writing, the app is not appearing in the "Featured" section of the Apple TV AppStore nor is it appearing in the "Shopping" category.

Apple had announced the app was coming at WWDC in June, but it's taken a further six months to go live.

The support for Apple TV comes with the 5.0 update to the Amazon Prime Video app. This means Siri can now search for over 1.3 million episodes and movies on Apple TV. Customers in the U.S., U.K., Germany and Austria will also be able to watch videos from subscription services (like HBO, Showtime or Eurosport in Europe) paid for on Amazon.

As promised at Apple's last keynote, the Amazon Prime Video app is now available on Apple TV.

Other big Amazon TV show exclusives include Mr Robot, Transgender and the excellent Vikings will also returns for a brand new season very soon.
