Amazon today introduced a native macOS app for its Amazon Prime Video service, with the app now available from the Mac App Store.

Prime Video subscribers can stream content using the new app, or download content on Macs for offline viewing. All Amazon Prime content is available through the Mac app.

Picture-in-Picture and AirPlay are both supported features that work with Amazon's new app, and it supports in-app purchases for TV rentals and on-demand content as well as payment with an Amazon credit card that's already on file. Users can also take advantage of Amazon's Thursday Night Football and English Premier League where available.

There is a feature that will keep track of what users are watching and where they are in a TV series or movie so a show can be watched on one device and then picked up on another.

The Amazon Prime Video app is free to and it is compatible with macOS Big Sur 11.4 and later. An Amazon Prime subscription is required to use the video service. [Direct Link]

Earlier today, I got annoyed that the HBO Max app did not have macOS support and didn’t properly full screen apps.

So yeah, news but not big news. News non the less. I got the sense not everyone was so impressed

The remaining OSX / macOS devs are probably going to spend the rest of their career porting Photoshop and Final Cut Pro to Catalyst, is my best guess.

Can this do 23.976 fps & 4k HDR? Are there any deficiencies in the web player in that regard?

Hallelujah!! Finally!! Now it’s the time for Disney+ and I won’t need those two tabs taking up space in my browser.

Hopefully, it will come without any trackers for ads and data, like the FaceBook and Google ones, which Safari already blocks.

My only gripe is that I can't get native 4K/Dolby Vision/Atmos/HDR10 through the web browser for these streaming services. For that, you need the mobile apps....:p

DRM...argh.....
