That Apple TV one of the main competitors in the field of set-top boxes contemporary, no one will doubt that; undeniable, on the other hand, that Ma's alternative to the ?international? future of the television watching experience still has some important gaps did anyone speak in 4K?
One of these gaps, however, may find its end in the near future: according to information from the Recode, Apple and Amazon are close to reaching a ?truce? and, until the next quarter, the online sales giant will start offering its service streaming Amazon Prime Video for Apple TV.
It's nothing new for anyone that Apple and Amazon compete in a number of segments and haven't been in the best of shape lately; both giants seem, however, to have reached an agreement for Amazon Prime Video to reach Ma's gadget. Apparently, such a negotiation would be taking place "at the highest level of the two companies", that is, it is not crazy to think that Tim Cook and Jeff Bezos (CEOs of the respective companies) in person (s) would be talking to the agreement between both parties.
So far, Apple TV users who want to watch exclusive series like "Transparent" or ?The Man In The High Castle? they needed to resort to the little intuitive and far from the ideal AirPlay method, mirroring the screen of some other Ma device, like a Mac or iPhone. With the supposed arrival of the Amazon Prime Video app set-top box, the users of the gadget make life much easier through a native interface and even possible integration with Siri.
Amazon Prime Video, as you recall, is already available in Brazil for US $ 6 per month (with a promotional price of US $ 3 in the first six months).
And, is it a good addition to the Apple TV catalog or does it make a lot of difference?
