Amazon Prime Video soon on Apple TV
AppleTV will soon welcome Amazon prime video, what will do one of rare compatible TV case with so many services of SVOD.
On Monday, Apple took advantage of the inaugurale conference of the WWDC 2017 to present iOS 11, from which watchOS and tvOS are drawn from, but contrary to the Apple Watch platform, that of Apple TV will not be the object of a major update. tvOS was nevertheless the object of an announcement, the first of the Special Event, concerning the arrival of an extremely awaited application.
Tim Cook, the CEO of apple, actually confirmed that Amazon Prime Video would land on Apple TV “later this year” without giving more precision.
It does not sound like much, but Apple TV is actually becoming one of the rare platforms giving access at the same time to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, CanalPlay and OCS, that is to say to the main non-specialized services of video on demand on subscription (SVOD). Digital decoders from other Internet access providers cannot say the same, only some of the third Android TV terminals such as Nvidia Shield TV are certified for each of these services.
The subscriber Amazon Premium can thus take advantage of original series such as Transparent, The Grand Tour, American Gods, The Man in the High Castle or Mozart in the Jungle on their 4th generation Apple TV. Until now, they had to own an Apple device and broadcast the video flow via AirPlay.
