Amazon Prime Video launches on the Apple TV App Store

But the decision always came with a caveat-unlike other set-top streamers, like Roku or Fire TV, Apple TV couldn't stream Amazon Prime Video.

The Seattle-based web giant's popular streaming app made its debut on Apple's living room fixture on Wednesday, signaling a thaw in the testy relationship between the tech giants.

Announced back at WWDC 2017, Amazon's Prime Video app for Apple TV 4 is now rolling out.

The launch comes just in time for the second season of Amazon's flagship original programme, The Grand Tour, which will launch on Amazon Prime Video on Friday.

Starting Thursday, Prime Video subscribers can also watch Thursday Night Football live through the app.

Amazon still has streaming battles to fight, however, with Google announcing this week that it will pull YouTube support from Amazon's Fire TV platform entirely from 1 January 2018. It was still possible to play Prime Video content on an Apple TV, but it required that you stream through AirPlay from another Apple device.

9to5Mac points out that the app might not be visible to all users in Apple TV Search, so the best way to find it is to search for "Amazon" on the tvOS App Store.

Sign in with your Amazon account and begin exploring Amazon's. Starting tomorrow, Prime members in the U.S. can enjoy Thursday Night Football on the Apple TV app for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV.

After years of waiting, Prime Video is available now for free.

The vain excuse, which puts little faith in the ability of customers to research products before spending money on them, echoes the warning that sparked a feud with Google, when Amazon said it stopped selling the Chromecast to "avoid customer confusion".

"We are so pleased to welcome Amazon to Apple TV", Cook said on stage in June.
