Amazon Wants 'Acceptable Business Terms' Before Bringing Prime Video to Apple TV

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos says the company wants 'acceptable business terms' before it will bring Prime Video to the Apple TV in an interview at Recode's Code Conference.

Bezos was asked why Amazon does not sell the Apple TV or make a Prime Video app for the platform.

We sell Roku, we sell Xbox, we sell PlayStation. We're happy to sell competitive products on Amazon and we do it all day. We sell Nest thermostats. When we sell those devices, we want our Prime Video player to be on the device and we want it to be on the device with acceptable business terms. We can always get the player on the device, the question is whether you can get it on with acceptable business terms. And if you can't, we don't want to sell it to our customers because they're going to be buying it thinking you can watch Prime Video and then they're going to be disappointed and then they're going to return it.

When questioned further by Nilay Patel, Bezos refused to say whether 'acceptable business terms' was in reference to Apple's 30% cut.

Last year, Amazon said it had an Apple TV app in development and you can currently download Amazon Video from the App Store for mobile devices.

If you don't already have Amazon Prime or Amazon Prime Video you can start a free trial here.
