Why Amazon and Google just can't get along

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

"Especially when the Apple TV 4K is capable of delivering 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision and 5.1 sound from so many other applications - including iTunes and Netflix".

For Amazon, this was a week of war and peace.

Support for the Apple TV Amazon Prime Video app came one day after Google announced it was removing YouTube support from both Fire TV and Echo Show, Amazon's smart speaker that features a touchscreen. In countries that support the app, integration with Apple TV app is also included with an access to Up Next syncing and show recommendations.

Amazon Australia: The big problem with the super-retailer
The giant e-tailer is promising one-day deliveries in most capital cities and 30% discounts on big-brand toys and clothing. Are you happy?! Now get on with buying your old man USB cables for his birthday, because he keeps losing them.

Facebook Messenger for Kids
It also includes a GIFs section for choosing images to send to friends, but content in the section is regulated by Facebook. The app, which is rolling out as a preview to iOS with Android coming later, is only available in the USA for the timebeing.

Amazon Prime Video will be available as an app on Apple TV starting tomorrow, December 8, Amazon announced today. Apple Inc., meantime, said Amazon Prime Video would become available as an app for Apple TV by the end of the year, but it hasn't yet been released. Amazon's decision of not selling the Google Chromecast and Apple TV (both of which have dedicated YouTube apps) has further strained the relation between Google and Amazon. On those devices, Google's YouTube and Play services often get prominent billing in search results, but at least you can get Amazon video.

In the course of just two days, there's been a small quake in the Internet streaming landscape, meaning one more choice on the high end, one fewer choice on the low end for cord cutters. The former uses search and other web services to sell ads, while the latter is an online retailer of goods and services. Google pulled the service because Amazon doesn't sell its products, the company told CNN Tech. There isn't a lot of 4K videos yet, but the price difference is small compared with what 4K TVs cost. And although Apple's services business is growing, it doesn't have much overlap with the core offerings of Google and Amazon. Siri remote and universal search are also supported in the integration. The controller gives you a headphone jack for private listening and hands-free queries with Google Assistant. 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.

You can get access to Prime Video if you're a paid Amazon Prime member, buy Prime Video on its own, are now in a 30-day free trial of either Amazon Prime or Prime Video, a Prime Student member or any member of an Amazon Household with shared Prime benefits.
