Apple TV Set To Get Amazon Prime Video App This Summer

Wochit Headline News - Thursday, 11 May 2017  (2 weeks ago)
It appears Apple and Amazon have called a truce. After years of neck and neck rivalry over video, the Amazon Prime video app will be coming to Apple TV, according to a Buzzfeed report. Apple's iOS mobile devices have long supported a stripped-down version of Amazon's video app that doesn't allow purchases. Competing set-top boxes from Roku support all the major streaming apps and allow for movie rentals and purchases directly through those apps. In 2015, Amazon stopped selling Apple TV and Google Chromecast boxes because Amazon didn't want its customers returning boxes after they discovered Prime Video streaming wasn't supported.
