How to block automatic updates and prompts on non-jailbroken Apple TV 4

With the release of Ian Beer’s new exploit, some hope for a future Apple TV 4 jailbreak has appeared. The exploit will theoretically work on firmwares up to and including tvOS 11.1, but not 11.2 and higher. For this reason, I advised in my jailbreak guide that Apple TV 4 users who want to have a chance of jailbreaking manually restore now to tvOS 11.1, before it goes unsigned. You can use our guide on the topic to do so....

Amazon Prime Video begins rolling out to the tvOS app store

Apple CEO Tim Cook announced the forthcoming appearance of Amazon Prime Video to the Apple TV earlier this year, but the launch kept getting pushed back for unknown reasons. Now, Amazon's Prime Video app is finally rolling out on the tvOS app store. The Prime Video iOS app was recently updated to version 5.0 and the release notes state that subscribers can download a separate tvOS app on their Apple TV to watch Prime Video content on that device.

Although we were able to download it this morning, according to a report by 9to5Mac, the Amazon Prime Video app may not show up for all users in a tvOS app store search. If it doesn't show up there, you can find the new app by searching for "Amazon" in the tvOS app store, selecting the Amazon Shopping app, and finding the new Prime Video app in the "More by this Developer" section at the bottom of the page. In order to use the Prime Video app, you must have a third-generation Apple TV or newer device.

Cook first announced the launch of Amazon Prime Video for Apple's set-top box back at WWDC in June, and the first release was set for sometime this summer. But the summertime came and went and Apple TV users continued to go without Prime Video. Some suspected the launch would coincide with the iPhone X event in September, but no. Now, Amazon Prime Video joins a number of other big streaming services, including Netflix and Hulu, that have tvOS apps. Previously, any Amazon Prime Video content could only play on an Apple TV through AirPlay from another device.
