Last year, Amazon appeared to have confirmed that they were developing a tvOS app for Prime Video, but the second-largest streaming service in the United States is still missing from the Apple TV. Speaking at Vox Media’s Code Conference yesterday, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said the company wants “acceptable business terms” before it can bring Prime Video to platforms like Apple TV.
Rheo is an interesting new tvOS app that curates videos from across the web. It is said to be “the fastest way for you to discover and enjoy the videos you want to watch.” Alan Cannistraro, founder of Copper Studios, the company behind the app, spent 12 years at Apple in both design and engineering roles of media products. He worked on the very beginnings of Apple TV, and even brainstormed with Steve Jobs about the future of media technology.
NBCUniversal announced that pay-TV customers can now watch shows from its Bravo, Syfy and E! on Apple TV 4 with the launch of three apps for tvOS: Bravo Now, E! Now and Syfy Now.
