It's about time! Amazon Video has finally joined Apple TV

Once rented or bought, non-prime content will appear through the Apple TV app for viewing.

Starting Wednesday, Amazon Prime users will be able to more easily watch movies and TV shows directly on Apple TV, rather than using a workaround to mirror content from an iPhone or another Apple device via AirPlay.

The Amazon Prime Video app can be found by searching in the Apple TV app store.

Apple had announced the app was coming at WWDC in June, but it's taken a further six months to go live. In case you didn't know - Amazon stopped selling the Apple TV on its website mainly due to the fact that it had no presence of Amazon Prime Video at all on Apple's TV platform.

Live sports in the Apple TV app means fans in the U.S. can now follow their favorite teams to ensure those live games show up first in their Up Next queue.

Right now, as we're just a few weeks away from 2018, so most probably Amazon and Apple sure are cutting it close here. The launch of Prime Video on Apple TV was first spotted by the Verge.

The tvOS 11.2 software update will allow Apple TV 4K customers to choose between having video converted to the best format their TV can support or outputting the video in its original frame rate and dynamic range. Spanish blog Applesfera spotted the Prime Video app in the iOS App Store with promotional text written by App Store editors.

In retaliation, Amazon pulled the Apple TV set top box from sale, and it's still absent at the time of writing.

Apple and Amazon had been at loggerheads on the issue of Amazon Prime TV support earlier in the year, with Amazon going so far as to pull the Apple TV from its United States storefront, citing potential customer confusion as the reason why.
