How do I access Amazon Prime videos with Apple TV box connected to my HDTV?

AppleTV 2

    You don't. Amazon does not allow airplay or mirroring of any kind due to copyright laws. If this is a feature you want, I would suggest sending some feedback to Amazon.

    Actually, you should send feedback to Apple instead of Amazon. Amazon would have an AppleTV app if Apple opened it's environment to developers. That's why Roku has 10x as many choices as AppleTV.  I have one of both - I got a Roku LT for about $40 to fill in Apple TV's gaps.

    Amazon currently block airplay functionality so in regards to the app the feedback should be directed towards them.

    It is true that AirPlay can block copy righted content it does NOT block content from the Amazon app.  I can play content just fine from it on ATV.   I do find AirPlay to be extremely buggy and failure prone though so I would not use it as a primary feature.  Amazon FireTV starts at $40.   If you really want to watch Amazon content I would just get that.

    Actually a year and a half ago when this thread was still active, Amazon content WAS blocked in Airplay. Amazon has since changed its policy (and the app).
