20 Dec 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Amazon launched globally on December 14 but availability was limited to Smart TVs from Samsung and LG as well as a few other devices. The app is now available internationally on Sony 2015 and 2016 Sony Android TVs.

Amazon Prime Video has followed in Netflix’s footsteps to become a global streaming service. Like Netflix, Amazon is producing original content but the service is not yet as widely available as the leader is.

Owners of Sony Android TVs from the 2015 and 2016 generations can now enjoy Amazon’s catalog on their TV without connecting any additional devices. The Amazon Prime Video app started rolling on yesterday on December 19, Sony has confirmed.

The app was already visible on Sony Android TVs in markets where Amazon was available prior to the global launch on December 14.

Sony tells FlatpanelsHD that the app will show up automatically on the home screen. There is no plan to introduce the app on non-Android TVs.

The app does not appear to be available from the Google Play Store on Android TV, which means that it does not show up on Android TVs from Philips and Bang & Olufsen and neither on Android TV boxes like Nvidia Shield. It is exclusive to Sony Android TVs. Follow the link to see which devices that are supported internationally here.
