Apple chief executive officer (CEO), Tim Cook earlier this year said that Amazon Prime Video will be available by the end of this year. Currently, Amazon Prime Video is only available on select TV models and on Amazon’s own Fire TV stick. It has been some time since the announcement and from then there has been no news about the app coming to the Apple TV. Today, a Reddit user claiming to be an Amazon employee said that the company is going to release the Prime Video app for Apple TV on October 26.
“Prime Video provides a wealth of great content, thousands of TV shows and movies, and some great original content like Transparent, Mozart in the Jungle, Man in the High Castle and so much more. We are so pleased to welcome Amazon to Apple TV,”
Tim Cook said in June.
The user had made a post two weeks ago on Reddit stating that the company had finished building the app for some time now, but due to there being “a lot of politics” between the companies the app got delayed. Interestingly, this rivalry of both the companies was witnessed in the past when Amazon stopped selling the Apple TV on its e-commerce platform to avoid confusion amongst customers.
If this report is believed to be true, then one of the biggest complaints that the customers have with the Apple TV will be negated. analytics firms have stated that as per their research Amazon Prime Video has a much larger catalogue than Netflix.
