Apple TV Finally Returns to Amazon

Apple TV 4K sells out on Amazon within hours of being on sale

Amazon's Prime Video app was the most downloaded of any tvOS app ever in its first seven days. The update for Amazon Prime Video app is now live in the Apple App Store. In this short period of time, however, it's managed to rack up more downloads than other popular streaming apps, like Netflix and Hulu.

After waiting for two years to see the Apple TV 4K back on Amazon, something unexpected happened. Apple stopped selling both Apple TVs as well as Google Chromecasts.

If we talk more about Amazon's Prime Video app, the app was released for Apple TV's fourth generation and fifth generation earlier this month. "It had the most first-week downloads of any app in the history of tvOS".


Amazon removed Apple's streaming device, as well as Google's Chromecast streaming adapter, from its store in late 2015 amid increased competition in the video space.

"Globally, Amazon Prime Video saw its largest week of iOS downloads ever during the week of December 3rd through 9th, 2017 seeing well over 550,000 iOS downloads", App Annie told TechCrunch.

Amazon began selling the device after a feud with Apple for over two years. The CEO has announced this in the June month during company's Annual Developers Conference and also claimed that the app will be made available for this platform before the end of this current season.
