amazon prime video screen

You'll soon be able to watch Amazon Prime Video using your Apple TV set-top box.

The streaming service has so far been absent from Apple's streaming box, in what many analysts read as a high-level spat between the two tech giants. A couple of years ago, Amazon decided to stop selling the Apple TV from its website. It claimed this was to avoid any confusion as to which devices ran Amazon Prime Video.

Now it seems they've made up. Apple announced that the latest version of tvOS – the software that the Apple TV runs – will feature the Amazon Prime Video app.

Prime Video is available on lots of other devices, including the Roku Streaming Stick, and smart TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony and Panasonic.

Now Google is left as the only major manufacturer not to offer Prime Video through its streaming devices – the app is conspicuous by its absence from Google's Chromecast range of streaming devices.

The question is: Will Amazon start selling the Apple TV again? We'll have to wait and see.
