Amazon Prime Video For Apple TV With Universal Search Feature Rolls Out

Amazon Prime Video For Apple TV With Universal Search Feature Rolls Out

As you'd expect, it's much like the web, Roku and smart TV apps, letting you scroll and search films and TV series, select favorites, and more.

India Today Tech can confirm this via the latest version of Amazon Prime Video app on iOS (version 5.0), which details that the streaming service can be viewed on Apple TV (3rd generation and later) by downloading the standalone tvOS app.

You can find the Amazon Prime Video app on iTunes HERE.




The app and partnership was originally announced in June during Apple's annual developer conference.

Previously, Apple TV owners relied on a wireless AirPlay connection to play Prime Video content on their Apple TV device. Given the benefit to both Prime Video and Apple TV users, it's good to see they can agree on at least one thing. According to research firm Consumer Intelligence Research Partners, 63 percent of Amazon's customers are Prime members, and in the past 12 months, the total subscriber base has grown by 38 percent.

Separately, a user on Reddit also reported that by setting their iPhone's date and time forward to December 6th briefly caused the Amazon Prime Video story to appear in the App Store - but Apple seems to have since closed that loophole. And if you can't, then we don't want to sell it to our customers, because they're going to be buying it thinking they can watch Prime Video and then they're going to be disappointed.
