Amazon Prime Video now available on Apple TV

YouTube cracks down on disturbing videos of children

You can get YouTube, Google Play and Amazon video, but not iTunes.

YouTube might soon disappear from your Amazon streaming device.

Amazon's Prime Video app is available on Apple TV 4K and previous generations of Apple TV in more than 100 countries. The controller gives you a headphone jack for private listening and hands-free queries with Google Assistant.

Google's champion moan continued: "Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and FireTV". While Google's stock price has grown 198% since December 2012, Amazon's has soared 352.6% in the same period. Amazon told The Verge that the decision was made "without explanation ... which is disappointing and hurts both of our customers".

From Archer's reporting, it appears that Amazon is aware of the issue, and may already have moved to cover its tracks. Users will be able to find content on Amazon Video simply by speaking or typing their queries into the Apple TV's robust search feature. This is bad news for consumers, as streaming boxes have been and are expected to continue to be one of the most popular gift items, since they are (mostly) affordably priced. It also can be watched on a Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick, and Fire tablets.

Which brings us to the Amazon/Apple dispute.

Back at a 2016 Code Conference, Amazon CEO and richest man in the world Jeff Bezos said, "We want our player, our Prime Video player, to be on the device, and we want it to be on the device with acceptable business terms..." You can't get access to Sky's 4K sports coverage (although that holds true on any platform save Sky Q), and although there is a Now TV app, this only provides access to Sports via day passes. It charges via Lightning connector, just like an iPhone, and it also has infrared support so you can use it to control the volume on your TV or set-top box. Now Google has been unhappy with Amazon using its YouTube service on its devices and this was the first step to make Amazon agree to its demands.

Apple rules also prevent rivals from telling customers that they can buy subscriptions outside of the Apple ecosystem at a cheaper rate. Here, the streaming service's content can come up in systemwide searches. But it offers no clear information on how users might do so, it not wanting to do any selling or renting out via the Apple platform for financial reasons. "The app arrives just in time for the highly anticipated new season of The Grand Tour. and Prime Video members streaming on the Apple TV 4K will have the exceptional viewing experience of 4K HDR".

Both Amazon Prime Video and YouTube are available on Roku, a streaming stick not manufactured by tech industry behemoths.

This comes shortly after Google broke ties with Amazon's Fire TV, showing the fight between internet giants to dominate in both content and hardware.
