The iPad is different than Apple TV. In fact, Apple blocks certain apps- HBO go, Showtime, amazon instant video, etc from AirPlay working on Apple TV. While other apps they allow it. It's an apple thing... I understand why- it competes with iTunes. But amazon isn't any different than Netflix and HBO go is such a small select group... They're just being sticklers.Again- it's on every single other streaming box- except ATV. You do the math.
