Apple's best streamer yet now comes with Amazon Prime Video

YouTube cracks down on disturbing videos of children

In a statement, Google said, "Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make (its) Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of (our sister company) Nest's latest products".

Amazon Prime Video is an iOS app that enables you to watch content from your Amazon subscription on your iPad or iPhone.

The lack of Dolby 5.1 support is an immediate disappointment for owners of the Apple TV 4K unit, which is capable of delivering 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision and 5.1 sound. This enabled Amazon Prime users to watch movies and videos on Apple TV directly, instead of mirroring content from any Apple device through AirPlay.

The decision to block YouTube is retaliation for Amazon's refusal to sell some Google products that compete with Amazon gadgets.

Streaming devices allow users to stream videos from platform such as Netflix, YouTube, Hulu, and Amazon Prime on its TV.

In part at least, this dispute dates back to 2015, when Amazon ceased to stock both Chromecast and Apple TV devices on its main website - leaving them only available for sale on the Amazon platform via third party sellers. The streaming devices also offer free, ad-supported channels such as TubiTV, PBS and Crackle and network TV apps (NBC, ABC, FX), which can only be seen with proof of a cable subscription and access to recent movies.

The spat has gotten so bad that Google yesterday took the vary rare step of suspending its Youtube service on a number of Amazon devices, including Fire TV. As you might know Nest is now a Google subsidiary. Unless a truce is reached, YouTube will stop working on Fire TV on January 1.

Google and Amazon have always been in discussion regarding on the best way to go about with their products and have an equally beneficial working relationship. 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 said in a statement, "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website". And although Apple's services business is growing, it doesn't have much overlap with the core offerings of Google and Amazon. As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon.
