Amazon Video (Finally!) Comes to Apple TV

The free Amazon Prime Video app for Apple TV is here and it's layout and design is similar to versions on other streaming devices, such as Roku.

At long last, Amazon's Prime Video application will be available today for the tvOS-powered Apple TV, as expected based on hints from the App Store. Search "Amazon Prime Video" in the Apple TV App Store to find it. The standoff led Amazon to stop selling the Apple TV on its retail site in 2015, as Recode noted.

With one controversy seemingly solved, Amazon now turns to Google, which announced on Tuesday that it would block its YouTube video app on Amazon devices because it does not sell Google hardware like Chromecast streaming dongles and Google Home smart speakers, per Investor's Business Daily.

3 dead, 15 hurt in New Mexico high school shooting
The school of about 900 students was cordoned off as authorities cleared the campus and teens were taken to another location. Thursday's shooting appears to be the most serious in a New Mexico school in years.

Meanwhile in Apple land, the addition of Prime Video should help bolster the Apple TV's content library until the company's billion dollar push into original programming bears fruit.

Rumors of the truce first emerged this past spring, when a report by BuzzFeed revealed that the two firms had come to an agreement that would let users watch Prime videos on their Apple TV devices. Google isn't happy that Amazon isn't listing Nest (a Google/Alphabet owned company) devices on its United States storefront, and had earlier dropped access for Amazon's Echo Show platform before announcing this week that it would remove access for Fire TV owners as well.

But, with 2017 coming to a close, many were left wondering when this would actually happen. "With these exciting updates, plus our growing collection of 4K HDR movies on iTunes, we continue to deliver an unparalleled entertainment experience to Apple customers", he continued.
