After blocking Apple TV sales for over two years, the set top streaming box is available again on Amazon’s website. The change came about a week and a half after the Amazon Prime Video app was released for third generation and newer Apple TV models.
Amazon prohibited Apple TV sales on its site two years ago saying it would confuse customers who bought the device only to find they couldn’t watch Prime Video shows and movies. When Apple announced in June this year that Amazon Prime Video was finally coming to Apple TV, it looked like we’d finally see the device return to the online retailer’s site.
Apple TV showed up on Amazon for a short window in September, raising hopes that the Prime Video app was about to be released. The device quickly disappeared, however, and we didn’t get the app until early December.
With Prime Video available for Apple TV it looks like Amazon was ready to start up sales again, even though you can’t actually get one yet.
