Amazon's Prime is officially coming to Apple TV this year

Amazon's Prime is officially coming to Apple TV this year

Apple has confirmed that Amazon will launch an app for its Prime Video service for tvOS.

As the rumors foretold, it seems that Apple and Amazon have buried the hatchet.

Apple made the announcement on Monday at its annual WWDC developer conference in San Jose, Calif.

Cook also announced that the TV App for Apple TV, iPhone and iPad, which serves as a unified hub for separate apps that offer an array of movies and TV shows for streaming, now has 50 content partners integrated.

We didnt get a specific timeframe for the debut of the service - all Apple said is its coming later this year. With today's announcement, Apple TV users can be confident of having a much better home theater experience in the near future.

On the other hand, Amazon tweeted that its Prime Video will be available on Apple TV.

"You asked (a lot)". The standoff led Amazon to stop selling the Apple TV on its retail site in 2015, as Recode noted. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos previously stated that both companies couldn't find acceptable business terms to bring the e-commerce giant's video app on the tech giant's set-top-box.

Apple's developer extravaganza WWDC 2017 is now underway and the Cupertino giant kicked off the keynote address with the announcement of upgrades coming to Apple TV.
