apple tv app oct 16

Last week, we reported that Amazon Prime Video could finally be available on Apple TV later this year. Now it seems it could land sooner than we expected, with a rumoured announcement scheduled for next month.

According to Buzzfeed, Apple will make the announcement at WWDC (Worldwide Developers Conference) which starts on 5th June. That's just three weeks away.

If an announcement is forthcoming – and nothing is official yet – it could also mean the Apple TV is once again available to purchase from Amazon.

Amazon stopped selling the device back in 2015. The reason? It said it didn't want to confuse consumers, in case they thought it might be compatible with its Amazon Prime Video streaming service.

With the app available on Apple's streaming box of tricks, Amazon would have no excuse not to sell the device.

The deal would mean Amazon Prime Video customers could watch the likes of 'The Man in the High Castle' and 'The Grand Tour' on their TVs through the Apple TV, without having to buy a smart TV or Amazon Fire TV.
