    I'm hoping this means we'll have a dedicated AppleTV app for Amazon streaming. This is what happened with HBOgo if I recall correctly.

    I downloaded the update and tried it. I'm only getting Airplay audio.

    It looks like the update hasn't been pushed out yet.

    Instant Video is listed under updates, but instead of an update button, there's an open button.

    Say what?!? *facepalm*. You get the Open button after the update has been installed.... My update went perfectly fine.

    PS just streamed Saturday night fever from iPhone 5 to an AppleTV with the Amazon instant app. Yes it does indeed work.

    ^^^Same. I watched about 10 episodes of Heroes from it to my AppleTV. Worked flawlessly.

    I have the same problem with the update on the iPad1. Perhaps it is not enabled on that device?

    Only audio for me too... just for the (updated and correct version) Amazon app. Getting the mirroring screen. iPhone 4s and ATV3.

    This happened to me too... amazon app and one other. Restarted my iPhone and then was able to update... for all the good it did. May have had something to do with the update rush before tomorrow's release?

    Let me return that face-palm right back at you. :rolleyes:

    Thanks, a restart worked.

    Initially both my iPad and iPhone kept redownloading the old version, and hence the AppStore kept listing the app under updates. Restarted both and finally saw the new version and successfully downloaded it.

    ETA: The app is saying there's an update available, even after I updated. Something is wrong somewhere.

    E-mailed Amazon support - apparently the video AirPlay only works with iOS 6 and above. As the iPad1 only can only run up to iOS 5.1.1, we are S.O.L.

    Well, it's working for me today! Either the app didn't update or I completely missed the fact I needed to hit the AirPlay icon within the Amazon app as well as the one on the swipe bar. I swear I didn't see that icon yesterday.

    Looks like you're right. I still like my trusty iPad 1. It's a shame that OS updates and app updates are leaving it behind.
