Amazon Prime Video Apple TV App Spotted Briefly Before Taken Down

Earlier this year it was suggested that Amazon Prime Video could be coming to the Apple TV in the form of its own app. Given that we’re sure nobody likes to buy a piece of hardware just to access a service, this is no doubt great news for Apple TV owners who are also Prime subscribers.

However last we heard, the app’s launch was delayed. The good news is that it appears that we could be getting pretty close. In a post on Reddit (via MacRumors), it seems that Apple might have let the cat out of the bag a bit early. The post on Reddit revealed that Apple might have started to advertise the Amazon Prime Video app in the App Store a bit earlier than anticipated because it has since been taken down.

According to the Redditor studio1burbank,“As said, my time/date is set to tomorrow. That is relevant because I saw the story at the top of the “Today” tab when I opened the App Store. That is how I obtained the link. Thus my guess is that the story is ready for launch on the App Store tomorrow, and sometime around midnight Eastern or PST, both the story and the updated app itself will go live.”

Of course there’s no guarantee that this will happen so do take it with a grain of salt, but we can only imagine that the promotion of the app is a sign that we could be getting close.
