Google pulls YouTube from Amazon devices, escalating spat

YouTube cracks down on disturbing videos of children

We knew it was coming and now Amazon has officially started rolling out its Prime Video app to the Apple TV 4K, as well as older models of Apple TV, in more than 100 countries.

The beginning of service fulfilled the promise made by Apple CEO Tim Cook during a conference in June this year.

This news will likely end a long-standing feud between Apple and Amazon, two companies that have more money than you will ever see in your life, so you probably shouldn't worry too much about their feuds.

Apple TV owners will have access to Amazon Original Movies and Prime Originals such as The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Tick along with the upcoming premieres of Jean-Claude Van Johnson on December 15 and Phillip K. Dick's Electric Dreams on January 12.

The exact cause of the bad blood between the two companies has never been confirmed but many speculate the similarity between the Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV devices is the main reason. "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".

He said that the electorate of the state gave a befitting reply to the baseless allegations levelled by opposition parties. The same were used in 2007 Assembly elections where the BSP emerged victorious and formed the government on its own.

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.

"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services", said a Google spokesperson.

The rivalry among leading brands has been helping other players to strive in the market. Prime Video is a subscription service and comes with Amazon Original Movies, Prime Originals (such as Man In The High Castle and The Grand Tour), Hollywood blockbusters, TV series and over 95 channels in the UK. Most of the companies making these devices also have their own streaming services. 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.

The slightly iffy bit about the Apple TV is the choice of native apps in the Apple TV App Store, which still isn't all that great. And if you're still not satisfied, well, I suppose you could just go out and buy a Roku. This is a game-changer and makes the Apple TV 4K a much more viable alternative to the Amazon Fire TV stick, if you're an iOS user.

Apple's selling point is that the unit is part of the Apple ecosystem, and therefore connects to your photos and videos from your iPhone and can play media from your Mac computer as well. For cheaper models, you can get that through Roku's smartphone app.
