Apple TV 4K Streamers Appear On Amazon Retail Portal
Alert Apple TV fans recently got the opportunity to purchase the latest versions of the popular over-the-top video streamer on Amazon.com, despite its absence from the giant e-commerce portal in recent months.
The move follows Apple recently adding the popular Amazon Prime Video app for over-the-top streaming to the media adapters’ app libraries. The Apple TV streamers were missing from Amazon’s lineup, in part, because they did not yet include the Amazon Prime Video service.
Apple had said at the launch of the Apple TV 4K devices last fall that Amazon Prime Video would be among the many apps and services carried on the device.

The latest Apple TV 4K adapters were displayed and available on Amazon in the 32 GB ($179) capacity, and listed but out of stock in 64 GBs ($199). The fourth generation non-4K 32 GB Apple TV media streamer was also listed at $149 but was showing as temporarily out of stock Thursday.
The Apple TV 4K adapters present streaming video in up to 4K 3840x2160p resolution along with Dolby Vision and HDR10 high dynamic range, from support apps/services, like Amazon Prime Video.
The 4th Generation Apple TV available for $149 outputs up to Full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution and has 32GB of onboard storage.
Naturally, the platform also supports Apple’s iTunes services offering a growing list of 4K streaming movies with HDR content, and where available, Apple upgrades movies and programs already existing in users’ libraries to 4K versions.
The Apple TV 4K devices are designed to connect to 4K Ultra HD TVs with HDR capability to deliver up to 4K/HDR content with richer colors, sharper image detail and a wide range of detail in dark shadows and bright whites.
The Apple TV 4K boxes are powered by an A10X Fusion chip, which is the same one used in the iPad Pro. This enables advanced console-quality game play with titles developed by supporting developers.
To present lower-resolution content on 4K TV screens, the set-top media streamers include a built-in high-performance 4K video scaler.
The Apple TV 4K boxes are equipped with Apple’s popular Siri voice-control technology. The interface makes it easy to discover and watch TV shows and movies from multiple apps in one place.
