That is to say, you are suggested to download Amazon Music as local files and keep them onto your computer. In this way, we can import those downloaded Amazon Music tracks to Apple TV for playback.

Since Amazon Music tracks are not protected by digital right management, you are allowed to downloaded your favorite songs as an Amazon Music membership or purchased them separately.
