Amazon Music joins other streaming services on Apple TV

If your Apple Music subscription has expired, there's some good news: Starting today, you can stream Amazon Music to Apple TV and Apple TV 4K.

Subscribers can listen to 40 million songs available on Amazon and access their favorite artists, playlists, and purchased songs, according to the Amazon blog post.

The arrival of the app is not surprising since Apple Music was launched on Fire TV in March. But it shows that the two previously hostile companies are now more eager to work together.

The other, less obvious advantage that Amazon Music brings to the Apple App Store is that the competition among streaming apps is increasing, especially with Apple's own Apple Music service.

Why would Apple want to tighten competition for its own service?

Spotify recently said that Apple's ownership of both the platform and its own service is anticompetitive behavior that has led the US government to investigate the situation.

With Amazon Music on board, Apple can now claim that there is another rival for music streaming services on Apple TV, which strengthens its defense if the test continues to progress.

With that in mind, you can now download the Amazon Music app from the Apple TV App Store in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and Brazil if you're more excited about streaming your Amazon Music library than Apple's strategies, Canada, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Mexico, Japan and India.
