Apple and Amazon had been clashing on the issue of Amazon Prime TV support for many years, with Amazon going so far as to pull the Apple TV from its US storefront in 2016, citing potential customer confusion as to the reason why. Now, in 2018, the launch of Amazon Prime Video on the Apple TV has proved to be convenient, where subscribers can watch original programming such as The Grand Tour.
However, Amazon still has streaming battles to fight, with Google announcing in 2017 that it would pull YouTube support from Amazon’s Fire TV platform entirely from 1 January 2018. Google isn’t happy that Amazon isn’t listing Nest (a Google/Alphabet owned company) devices on its US storefront, and had earlier dropped access for Amazon’s Echo Show platform before announcing that it would remove access for Fire TV owners as well.

You can watch Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV in over 100 countries worldwide, including Canada.
A number of factors influence what resolution you can stream Amazon Prime Video in on Apple TV. First off, it’s important to note that the first two generations of Apple TV do not support Amazon Prime Video. For Apple TV 4K, you can stream in SD, HD and UHD/HDR, while 3rd generation Apple TV’s support SD and HD.
Just because the Apple TV is capable of streaming at a particular resolution doesn’t mean it always will. You’ll need a sufficiently fast Internet connection to stream at HD and UHD/HDR.
