YouTube cutting access to Amazon Fire TV on New Year's Day

YouTube cutting access to Amazon Fire TV on New Year's Day

This was resolved in November for Echo Show users, when Amazon began forwarding people using that device to a stripped-down third-party app that leveraged the YouTube website, instead of a native app.

A rare public spat in the technology industry escalated on Tuesday when Google said it would block its video streaming application YouTube from two Amazon.com Inc devices and criticized the online retailer for not selling Google hardware.

Google stopped Amazon's Echo Show speakers playing YouTube videos in September.

"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services", Google said in a statement. YouTube was supposed to disappear from the Echo Show Tuesday, although Amazon has previously found ways to make unauthorized versions of YouTube available on that device. They said that Google has been in talks with Amazon to ensure that both of its customers get access to each of their services irrespective of their platform.

It said it hoped to resolve the issue with Google as soon as possible but customers could access YouTube through the internet - not an app - on the devices in the meantime.

Wasatch Advisors Inc. Cuts Holdings in Copart, Inc. (NASDAQ:CPRT)
Cooper Creek Partners Management Llc bought 455,504 shares as the company's stock declined 25.47% while stock markets rallied. The company's stock had a trading volume of 1,898,108 shares, compared to its average volume of 1,107,152. (NASDAQ:BCOV).

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on whether Apple TV will return to Amazon's online store now that it supports Amazon Prime.

The dispute between Amazon and Google mirrors the face-offs that occasionally crop up between pay-TV providers and TV networks when it comes time to re-negotiate their deals. There are always two sides to a feud, and the on-going beef between Amazon and Google is a testament to this fact. "Seems like some of the biggest internet companies can't say the same". "But Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of Nest's latest products".

The video-streaming access fight has been brewing for some time.

Amazon will not retail Google's Chromecast, nor its Google Home range of goods, as you may have discovered, and the reason for this is that they compete directly with Amazon's own products. But that could change if Amazon's video streaming service starts working on Apple TV, something Apple has said would happen by the end of this year. Roku's players feature channels for watching both Prime video and YouTube.
