Installing Amazon Prime Video on your Apple TV
Head to the App Store on your Apple TV and pop “Amazon Prime” into the search box. You should see the Amazon Prime Video app right at the top of the results.
Click the app and then select Get on the next screen.
Once you install the app, you’ll need to register your Apple TV to use it. You can either sign into your Amazon account on Apple TV or go online and enter a code that will display.
After you install the app and register your device, you’re ready to go!
Using the Amazon Prime Video app
You can get started and watch a movie or television show right away. You’ll see the clean menu at the top where you can Search for a show if you like. Otherwise, browse through the sections for Originals, Movies, TV, or Kids.
The Video Library area holds all of those movies and TV shows that you purchase, so you can watch those at any time.
The Watchlist is that handy section that keeps all of the movies and TV shows you have added to it to watch later. You may have added them on your iOS device or the Amazon website. So, just access those shows here. To delete one, just select it and hold; it will then disappear from your Watchlist.
If you come across another show you would like to add to your Watchlist, you can do this easily. Click the movie or TV show and then select + Watchlist. Alternatively, you can do it right as you’re browsing videos by selecting and holding the show.
Reviewing the app settings
The Amazon Prime Video Settings area is an informative section. You can get details on renting or buying videos, how you can provide feedback, and setting up parental controls. If you need to deregister your Apple TV for some reason, you can do it from the Settings as well.
You can click to go directly to one of those mentioned sections or click the Prime Video square and use the navigation at the top to move between them.
