It has taken and in fact we announced it months ago. Apple TV users were waiting for it, but finally it is a reality. Amazon Prime Video arrives at the small set top box of Apple to complete the offer that allows access from the black box of the Cupertino to various video services on demand.
And is that Apple TV is going through an intense week, and very close to Christmas. If a few days ago the owners of a fourth and fifth generation Apple TV saw how TVOS was updated to version 11.2, now they see how Amazon Prime Video, perhaps the great rival of Netflix in streaming video, comes to its platform.
It’s been months of waiting, but you can already access the Amazon Prime Video application from the Apple TV. This way, if you are an Amazon Prime subscriber, you will have access to your video streaming channel from the device itself without having to use any other device.
A release that also occurs in parallel to the premiere of one of the most anticipated productions within the Jeff Bezos channel: the second season of The Grand Tour. The application offers an aesthetic similar to that we can find in other platforms although in this case has the particularity that is integrated with Siri.
Amazon Prime Video on the Apple TV offers support for content in 4K resolution with HDR and what is no less important, offers support for 5.1 sound that you can take advantage of if you have a home theater system or a sound bar.
In this way Amazon Prime Video completes a catalog in which we already had options such as Netflix, HBO or Hulu . Amazon Prime Video is now available in the tvOS app store in more than 100 countries.
