Amazon Prime Video Launches on Xbox, Xbox One in Canada
Amazon Prime subscribers in Canada have access to Prime Video, the company’s streaming video service, which also includes original series for viewing and more. Starting today, support for Amazon Prime Video has been added for Xbox and Xbox One family of devices in Canada—including the Xbox One X coming on November 7. This means yet another place where you can start watching Prime Video in your living room.
The company says the Amazon Prime Video app is now available for download via the Xbox Store. Prime Video includes various titles in 4K UHD, whereas with Netflix you need to pay extra for this high quality video tier. Videos can also be downloaded for offline viewing.
Amazon Prime Video launched in Canada last year, and support for Apple TV is supposed to arrive this year. When asked when support was coming, a spokesperson said there were currently no updates on when Prime Video will be launching on Apple TV.
