When Amazon stopped selling Apple TV and Chromecast on its site two years ago, the company gave the thin excuse that it was "important that the streaming media players we sell interact well with Prime Video in order to avoid customer confusion". Amazon kicked the Chromecast, Google's television player, off its retail website in 2015, along with Apple Inc's TV player.
According to Archer, while the Amazon Prime Video app has excellent video quality, the app appears to be only outputting audio in PCM stereo.
This new development in the existing row between the two companies follows YouTube disabling its programming from Amazon's Echo Show device, which Amazon retaliated by stopping to sell the Nest E Thermostat, Nest's Camera IQ, and the Nest Secure alarm system.
Now everyone can take a deep breath and relax: Amazon Prime Video is only a button click away on your Apple TV device. Without some broad-ranging truce, in which each company agrees to treat each other's services equally and let consumers decide what's best, Amazon and Google would only be undermining themselves. As you might know Nest is now a Google subsidiary. They say Amazon is not playing fair with Google. Google also immediately began blocking YouTube from Amazon's Echo Show smart screen device, marking the second time it has done so. Prime Video is also now available to members in more than 200 countries and territories around the globe.
Quite what headway has actually been made in Amazon and Apple's long-running dispute over "business terms" isn't clear. However, until then you can use the method mentioned above.
The Fire TV loses access to its YouTube app on January 1, Google said. Most of the tech companies that manufacture these devices provide their own streaming services, which had intensified the competition.
