Altho amazon got around that with the kindle app by not letting you buy books from the app, have to buy them from the website instead Sent from the iMore App
This is just childish.
You can't even sign up / subscribe for Netflix or Hulu, etc within the aTV apps, you have to go to their website in a browser on a different device, so how would it be any different for Amazon? I doubt it has anything to do with a 30% cut since all other Amazon apps on iOS bypass this anyhow.
The only reason I see is that Amazon offers rentals and sales of content, which is direct competition to iTunes Store & Google Play, whereas Netflix and Hulu are subscription services. Same for Vudu. Which is likely why neither company wants Amazon Streaming on said devices. Sent from the iMore App
