Starting December 8, Apple TV users around the world will be able to access the Amazon Prime Video application. This was reported by the company itself on its website. Thus, in less than a week, Apple users will be able to access thousands of titles through the Amazon Prime Video. This content will be available in 4K HDR on the latest version of Apple TV. However, it will also be viewable on older versions of the hardware.
Eddy Cue, senior vice president of software and Internet services at Apple, said that Amazon Primer Video is one of the applications most anticipated by Apple TV users, and referred to his excitement at bringing all this content to users.
The application will arrive at Apple TV in parallel with the premiere of the new season of “The Grand Tour”, which will be launched on the 8th of this month.
Amazon Primer Video will be available on Apple TV in about 100 countries, and users will also be able to discover their favorite Amazon shows and movies on their iPhone, iPad and, of course, Apple TV. Siri Remote will also work to find content within this app, which means, according to Apple itself, that Siri’s search library extends to some 1.3 million TV episodes and movies.
Support for live sports events
Apple also confirmed that the Apple TV application will begin offering live broadcast of sporting events in the United States. This, explains, is possible thanks to the fact that the ESPN and NBA applications for Apple TV, were developed by the NBA and Turner Sports, in both cases owners of the broadcasting rights of the most important sports events in the country, such as the basketball league and the Super Bowl.
