Trending: An ‘awesome year’? Gates Foundation CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann has a radical view on 2017

It took awhile, but Amazon Prime Video is finally live on Apple TV.

Amazon’s streaming video service is now accessible via Apple TV. The integration, first announced by Apple CEO Tim Cook at the company’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June, ends a long dispute between the two tech giants.

Apple TV lets customers stream content from services like HBO Go, Netflix, and around 50 other partners, but Amazon and Apple couldn’t reach an agreement. The standoff led Amazon to stop selling the Apple TV on its retail site in 2015, as Recode noted.

But now Apple TV users — 3rd generation or later — will have a way to watch Amazon content. The Amazon Prime Video iOS app was also updated today to include support for the iPhone X and universal search.

“We are so pleased to welcome Amazon to Apple TV,” Cook said on stage in June.

For Amazon, this provides another way for customers to access the company’s growing streaming video catalog that is accessible via the $99/year or $10.99/month ($8.99 for just video streaming) Prime membership program. It could also lead to Amazon selling the Apple TV again.

Amazon Prime Video is still not available on Google’s Chromecast device; Amazon also does not sell Chromecast on its site. Amazon and Google are engaged in a separate tiff over the YouTube app on Amazon’s Echo Show device.
