Google pulls YouTube from Amazon devices, escalating spat

There's No Great Reason to Buy an Amazon Fire TV Anymore

YouTube cracks down on disturbing videos of children

It wasn't until relatively recently at WWDC 2017 when Apple and Amazon belatedly said they had reached an agreement to develop a dedicated tvOS app for the Apple TV.

"Amazon Prime Video is one of the most eagerly anticipated apps to come to Apple TV, so we're excited to bring all of that great content to customers", Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue said in a statement on Apple's website. This was resolved in November for Echo Show users, when Amazon began forwarding people using that device to a stripped-down third-party app that leveraged the YouTube website, instead of a native app. All you have to do is head over to the App Store on any Apple TV and then log in with your Amazon credentials. It's not just available on the new Apple TV 4K either, as it will also support previous generations of the set-top box. Google is miffed by the fact that it is losing ad revenue from Fire TV which was the best selling streaming device in United States and India. The beef between these two companies now runs much deeper than streaming video, which makes swift resolution hard to envision. But with the Apple and Amazon streaming rivalry coming to end, Apple TV hardware could eventually be available to buy on Amazon.

Amazon Prime Video is available now on Apple TV for free. Amazon later reintroduced YouTube to the device, but the voice commands it added violated the use terms and on Tuesday Google again removed the service. Apple has also stayed out of the cloud computing business entirely, allowing Google, Amazon, and Microsoft to offer their own cloud services to app developers.

"We've been trying to reach an agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services".

Roku's market-leading streaming players are sold through Amazon.

The video-streaming access fight has been brewing for some time. They say Amazon is not playing fair with Google.

Previously you could only play Prime Video on your Apple TV through a wireless connection to Airplay from an iPhone or iPad. They said that Google has been in talks with Amazon to ensure that both of its customers get access to each of their services irrespective of their platform.
