The rumors are true! It’s official: Amazon Prime Video is coming to Apple TV! Chris Welch from The Verge reports on the big announcement.
Today at WWDC, it was announced that Amazon Prime Video will soon be available for Apple TV. The app will let users stream original hits like Transparent, Bosch, Mozart in the Jungle, Catastrophe, and more. Apple CEO Tim Cook said that Amazon Video for Apple TV will be released “later this year.”
That’s also when Apple plans to release more details about what’s next for tvOS; the Amazon announcement was the platform’s only mention on stage today. That’s an unusual departure, as Apple usually reveals at least a few new tvOS software features at its developer conference. In its own tweet announcing the news, Amazon said that it plans to integrate with the TV app on Apple TV.
