Amazon plans to release an app in Apple TV that will allow you to watch Amazon Prime videos on Apple TV. The app is expected to release in June at the WWDC. The two companies have been feuding over streaming videos. Amazon even stopped selling Apple TVs and Chromecasts in its store back in 2015. Do we see Apple TV returning to Amazon? See report from Ars Technica.
Starting today, you can start ordering your Apple TV. It will start shipping October 30. The 32 GB version costs $149 while the 64 GB version is $199. The new Apple TV will ship with a new remote with a mini touchpad. In addition, Apple TV also comes with a new interface and Siri the voice-enabled application that allows you to control the Apple TV using your own voice. To order, visit Apple’s website.
Interesting move by Amazon to kick out a couple of competing streaming media players. Chromecast and Apple TV are no longer being sold at Amazon.com. Clearly, Amazon wants to promote its own product, the Fire TV, as well as protect and promote its own Prime Video streaming service.
