Google TV's PrimeTime App Now Boasts Amazon Instant

Updated PrimeTime app streamlines content selection.

As Amazon continues to emphasize Kindle hardware, one neglected user base for Amazon Instant Video is Android users. Fortunately for Google TV owners, they are no longer bundled into that particular neglected group.

Once users have updated their Google TV PrimeTime app, not only will they find Amazon Instant Video, including Amazon Prime content, but content from Amazon Prime and other subscription services like Netflix and HBO Go will appear in the Free content section if the user is logged in as a subscriber.

Google TV had previously supported Amazon Instant, but only on LG models.

Unfortunately, a quick look at the PrimeTime page on Google Play reveals that many users are having trouble with the update, so users may be wise to hold off for now.
