Google blocks YouTube access from Amazon's streaming devices

Yesterday, Forbes reporter John Archer wrote about Amazon's new Prime Video app for the Apple TV.

If you're looking to watch Amazon Prime TV movies in Dolby 5.1 sound through your Apple TV, be ready for a disappointment.

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

To watch online entertainment if you don't have a smart TV, you need a streaming box, such as Apple TV, FireTV, Roku or Google's Chromecast devices.

With Amazon finally relenting on its years-long holdout, it seems the company may be finally realising it needs support from partners such as Apple if its streaming video service is going to thrive. The more Apple TVs the company gets into living rooms, the more people are likely to rent or buy movies and TV shows, or buy an app to play on their TV.

The restriction means that Amazon's Echo Show and its Fire TV can only access YouTube through its existing website, not through the app.

Also available is Thursday Night Football live on Apple TV 4K and Apple TV while Amazon's library of 4K high dynamic range (HDR) titles are also available on Apple TV 4K.

Google blocked YouTube access via the Echo Show, Amazon's smart speaker with a touchscreen, on Tuesday and will stop supporting YouTube on Amazon's Fire TV set-top box on January 1.

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

The rivalry among leading brands has been helping other players to strive in the market. The basic device is $149; a version with 4K and HDR costs $30 more.

Amazon announced earlier that their Prime Video app is now available in more than 100 countries around the word.

It's also worth remembering that it supports playback of both music and video content via AirPlay, so even if the selection of native Apple TV apps doesn't cover your favourite service, you may still be able to stream it to your TV.

Amazon retorted that Google is setting a "disappointing precedent" by imposing a no-go zone around what's otherwise "an open website" on every device in the universe that doesn't carry the Amazon brand.

The Siri remote is also barely different from the two-year-old HD-only Apple TV. It's already possible to stream Netflix through Apple TV, as well as NOW TV and BBC iPlayer by downloading the apps. 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. You can always get the player on the device.
