Thought I would let everyone know as BT seem pretty slow to do so (31.24 now out but the T4000 boxes will miss out on Amazon Prime and become second rate customers).
BT SOFTWARE UPDATE 31.24.0
This update brings the new player, Amazon Prime Video to BT T2100 & T2200 devices and bug fixes.
T4000 devices will receive the bug updates but Amazon Prime Video will launch in the (not so) near future.
Amazon Prime Video offers thousands of popular movies and TV shows on demand. Users can also buy/rent content and access subscription streaming services.
From the help pages
Amazon and BT have partnered together to bring you the best TV, Film and Entertainment streaming service available on BT TV.
Subscribing to Amazon Prime Video gives you access to exclusive Amazon content via your TV box, as well as on thousands of eligible devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers.How do I get it?
You'll need to either sign in or sign up to Amazon Prime, or Prime Video, to be able to watch or purchase content via the app on your BT TV box.
The Amazon Prime Video App can be found in the 'Players & Apps' section of the BT TV menu. Just press the blue Home button on your remote (or Youview button if you have an old remote) to get started.
Will parental control settings on BT TV work on the Amazon Prime Video App?
I have an extra BT TV box - can I watch Amazon Prime Video on both boxes?
Can Amazon Prime Video be streamed in HD or UHD?
Does watching Amazon Prime Video affect broadband usage allowance?
Uhd boxes will get it later in the summer, which means months away. Very poor service to its top tier subscribers.
I'm surprised that it matters to most T4000 customers. Surely the reason for having an Ultra box , mainly, is because you have a 4K TV & surely most smart TVs have Netflix & Amazon apps already.
Its good that Amazon Prime app is coming for anyone that has Amazon Prime or wants go get Amazon Prime. I dont have UHD box or a UHD(4k) TV and dont plan on getting a UHD(4K) TV for at lest another year or so but you would think that the Amazon prime app would have also come to the BT T4000 UHD(4K) boxers at the some time as the other BT bo
I dont as yet have Amazon Prime as I so far been happy with using Netflix as well as having BT TV.
I suppose it’s more the fact that these customers (4K) are likely to be paying the most per month to BT and thus are going to feel hard done by for not having the latest features in our boxes.
No. UHD is provided by BT at no extra cost. £15 a month is the top tier package which includes HD and UHD. The BBC iPlayer is providing and testing it for no extra at all.
