Amazon Prime Video now on Apple TV! Also ITV player and My5 player

Found 14th Dec 2017
After many years of competitive rivalry between Apple and Amazon you can now install the Amazon Prime Video app on your Apple TV 4 or newer! I also have Netflix but I have always paid for Amazon Prime too and it's about time I can use them on one device! It is only available on tvOS 11.1 or higher but instructions are below for updating your Apple TV device to the latest firmware if you want it now. Otherwise I’m sure it will be available in a month or so hopefully. The app has been available for a week now but I for one was not aware of this as I’m sure many others were not either. Seems to have gone a bit under the radar?

Instructions:
1) Register for the beta program and login with your apple ID: beta.apple.com/sp/betaprogram/
2) On your Apple TV device go to: Settings > System > Software Update > Get public beta updates
3) Download Amazon prime video app from TV app store

Enjoy

Can't get it to find beta on my apple tv. Is that because I have an old one?

Sorry bud I think it’s only for Apple TV 4 onwards which is a bit of a shame.

Update: confirmed by allotmentguy to work on Apple TV 3

it's definitely on the ATV 4, at least you should be on 11 not 10. Have you got an old beta profile installed?

So I guess the amazon devices will be getting youtube back!
Old news, beta information irrelevant, no savings.

What gen Apple TV is that? If it is Apple TV 3 or above you can follow the above instructions for the beta software which should solve the issue.
How is that a deal?
It isn't a deal.

Not having to buy a firestick
did Amazon have a spat over Youtube with Apple? I thought it was with Google? Anyway.....I watch a lot of youtube and have a fire tv box. Is it worth getting an apple box or are they pretty much the same except for the potential loss of youtube from Amazon? Also how do the games compare on the Apple tv box if I get one for my 10yr old? are they decent enough?

Google and Apple both fell out with Amazon because Amazon refused to sell their respective media boxes (Chromecast and Apple TV) due to them being rivals for the Amazon boxes.
