Thank you for your response I am sorry if I broke the rules it was not my intention. I am new to Apple TV and thought I might have misunderstood what I had heard about Amazon finally coming to Apple TV earlier this year. I will try to be patience and continue to watch all my previously purchased Amazon content on my old Roku until Amazon gets their act together. Again thank you for your help.

Not a problem, and you didn't break any rule. I was merely pointing out that if another user answered by providing speculation then that would be against the forum terms of use.


The announcement you were referring to was when Apple said Amazon would be releasing an app later this year. No release date was given and it's still November so all we can do is wait. In the meantime you can also use airplay to view content from the Amazon app via Apple TV if you own an IOS device.

It was announced that Amazon Prime would be coming to Apple TV this year. But no specific date was given.


As the year is not yet over, we can expect it even as far as December 31st unless Amazon releases a public statement about it earlier than that.


At this time, its all on Amazon's side.

Long time coming but Amazon Prime Video is now available on Apple TV under the “Prime Video” app that launched on December 6 2017.

Apple's set-top box is one of the last platforms to support the Amazon Prime Video app, which is now available on third, fourth, and fifth-generation Apple TV models.

Movies and TV shows in Amazon Prime Video can be added to your Watchlist, which is synced across all of your devices, and the Apple TV's Siri Remote can be used to search for Amazon content from within the app.


Universal Search is also supported, so Amazon Prime Video content will come up in systemwide searches on the Apple TV, and integration with Apple's dedicated TV app is included in countries where the TV app is supported, with access to Up Next syncing and content recommendations.


Integration with the TV app is nice, as is Universal Search, because both features let you access Amazon content without needing to use the Amazon Prime Video interface.


For the 4K Apple TV and supported television sets, supported Amazon Prime Video content plays in 4K HDR.

I have a 3rd Gen Apple TV set to update automatically, and the app appeared automatically.
