Google to Pull YouTube from Amazon Echo Show, Fire TV

Posted December 08, 2017

The Amazon Prime Video streaming app is now available for Apple TV.

Prime Video members can now use Apple TV to access Amazon original movies, Prime originals and Hollywood blockbusters and TV series and more than 140 channel subscriptions in the USA and 95 in the U.K., Germany and Austria. As of Wednesday, Apple TV owners are finally able to add Amazon's Prime Video to their devices - about six months after Apple chief executive Tim Cook promised the service was on its way.

This all seemingly relates to a dispute over what Google products Amazon stocks on its flagship selling-stuff website.

More routes are being opened", he told the IATA global media conference in Geneva, Switzerland. Overall revenues are seen rising 9.4% y-o-y to US$824 billion in 2018.

Technically, there are workarounds such as streaming the video on an iPad or iPhone, then streaming that to the Apple TV using AirPlay - but most consumers don't want to be bothered with workarounds. Most of the tech companies that manufacture these devices provide their own streaming services, which had intensified the competition.

Amazon stopped selling Apple TV and Google Chromecast devices in 2015, a year after it launched Fire TV. First of all, although we are not investment analysts by any means, it makes for interesting viewing to look at the comparative five-year market summaries for Amazon vs. Google.

FireTV is now sans YouTube, and while Chromecast can view Amazon Prime, it's not as easy to access as other channels. The controller gives you a headphone jack for private listening and hands-free queries with Google Assistant. "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website". 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. They want the content all in one place.

Apple and Amazon seem to have buried the hatchet, at least for the time being. Google is miffed by the fact that it is losing ad revenue from Fire TV which was the best selling streaming device in U.S. and India. Now they are not available direct from Amazon, although earlier this year the company did briefly list the latest version of the device for sale on its United States site (but it has since been removed).
