Amazon today announced the Prime Video app is available on Apple TV 4K and previous generations of Apple TV in over 100 countries. Prime Video members now have even more ways to stream award-winning and critically-acclaimed titles including Amazon Original Movies, Prime Originals and Hollywood blockbusters and TV series and over 140 Channel subscriptions in the US and 95 in the UK, Germany and Austria. Starting tomorrow, customers can enjoy Thursday Night Football live on Apple TV 4K and Apple TV. Amazon’s library of 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) titles are available on Apple TV 4K. Finding content on Prime Video is remarkably easy for Apple TV viewers with the Apple TV App, Siri Remote and universal search in select countries.

“There is nothing that excites us more than delighting our customers, and we are thrilled for them to stream Prime Video on Apple TV,” said Mark Eamer, Vice President of Prime Video. “The app arrives just in time for the highly anticipated new season of The Grand Tour, which launches on December 8th,and Prime Video members streaming on the Apple TV 4K will have the exceptional viewing experience of 4K HDR.”

Yep I see it there on my ATV3.   Still requires a DNS to stream some stuff.

Will be interesting to see how Amazon Prime goes here.  I've downloaded it and had a look around - pretty light on content.  Certainly far behind Netflix or even Neon or Lightbox in terms of offerings.  Maybe that will improve but other than headlining with the Grand Tour, American Gods and The Man in the High Castle it all seems a bit second-rate and thin.  Also, its a really weird app on the Apple TV - they seem to have designed it to avoid all the usual Apple TV IA rules.  

 

Suspect I might not keep it beyond the free trial week but certainly interesting to check it out.

I think if you set up a US  bound DNS you should see lots more.  I use Amazon Prime via my Fire TV with DNS   and that's my main streamer service.   Way more  than NF, Lightbox .

Yup, am sure there will be more on the US Service but I'm talking about what is available here without doing that.  Its pretty bad c.f. NZ Netflix, Neon or Lightbox.
