Amazon Prime Video finally reaches Apple TV

Apple promised that the Amazon Prime Video app was coming to the Apple TV earlier in the year.

The 4K Apple TV costs £179 for a 32GB model, £199 for a version with 64GB of storage.

The new Prime Video app is now available to download for the Apple TV, you can find out more details about the app over at iTunes at the link below.
