Amazon and Apple may have reached a truce.
The tech giants, who are increasingly competing for customers’ time, eyeballs and money, are close to an agreement to bring an Amazon video app to Apple’s Apple TV set-top box, according to people familiar with the two companies.
Amazon employees expect the app to show up on Apple’s hardware in the third quarter of the year.
That move would allow Amazon Prime Video subscribers to easily watch TV shows and movies from the service using Apple TV.
This is great news, if and when it happens. We have a Prime membership, yet have never streamed movies from the account, because we prefer watching movies together on our wide-screen tv and the only way to get content off our laptops, iPhones, or iPads is with Airplay.
I’ve had mixed results streaming over Airplay. A native Apple TV Amazon video app would neatly solve the problem.
