76 Apple TV
It took a while but Amazon Prime Video is finally available via tvos, widening the choice of viewing content available to you
•Watch Amazon Prime Video •Record your Apple TV screen
When Amazon Prime Video was released for Apple TV in December, it broke records for the highest number of first-week downloads on tvos. But then it’s easy to see why. For, while the app requires an Amazon Prime subscription, it has lots of original content with top shows such as Transparent and Man In The High Castle. It also has the bonus of 4K HDR viewing for those with the right television set.
Here we look at how you can get to grips with it, starting with downloading the app to fourth or fifth generation devices (those with an updated third-gen Apple TV should see it automatically appear). We will also look at how Siri can make navigating the app a little easier – a godsend given that the clumsy UI has been attracting more than a little criticism.
