Amazon issued an update to their iOS app that allows users with a number of updates. The biggest news is the ability to Airplay content from the app to an Apple TV. Previously, users could only send the audio to the Apple TV. With this update, users can wirelessly stream audio and video from an iOS device to an Apple TV.
The Amazon Instant Video app allows customers to watch videos purchased from Amazon on their iOS device. While all videos must be purchased through a web browser and not through the app, Amazon does allow free streaming of over 40,000 videos to their Amazon Prime customers without purchase or additional cost.Read more
On July 20th 2012, Amazon.com announced a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution to add popular TV shows, including Fringe and The West Wing to Amazon's Prime Instant Video catalog.
With more than 18,000 Prime Instant Videos, Amazon continues to add “fan-favorite” shows to their catalogue. This helps them maintain strong competition with their biggest rival, Netflix, and provides more options for those who wish to cut the cord from cable companies entirely.
