The Amazon Prime Video app could arrive on the Apple TV 4K as soon as next week. That's according to someone claiming to be an Amazon Video engineer on a Reddit thread.

The app isn't currently available on Apple's streaming box. A couple of years ago, Amazon stopped selling the device, claiming that it didn't want to confuse customers who might think they could use it to access the app.

But at last month's Apple TV 4K launch, Apple's CEO Tim Cook confirmed Amazon Prime Video would soon come to the Apple TV.

Prior to the announcement, the Apple TV reappeared for sale through Amazon. Though it was promptly pulled. Expect it to reappear once the Amazon app is available on Apple TV.

Amazon recently severed ties with the Weinstein Company, following a string of allegations of sexual assault levelled at its founder, Harvey Weinstein.

As part of the cull, Amazon Studios cancelled a show from 'Silver Linings Playbook' director David O. Russell. The show – produced by the Weinstein Company – would have starred Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore and Michael Shannon. It sounds an expensive cut to make – the show reportedly had a budget of $160 million for both seasons that Amazon had ordered.

Amazon also recently suspended its studio head, Roy Price, following the fallout from the Weinstein scandal. Price is alleged to have sexually harassed producer Isa Hackett.

Price was behind some of Amazon's biggest hits, including 'The Man in the High Castle' and 'Transparent'.
