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..."
It's also not clear if this latest development means that Amazon will begin stocking Apple TV devices again. You get voice searches through Google's Assistant - playback controls with some apps, weather info and some data you might never think to ask a TV, such as flight status.
A Google rep told Variety, which first reported the story, that the reasoning is simple: Amazon has declined to sell (and to offer Prime video on) Google's media devices, pushing instead, for example, its own Fire TV Stick exclusively rather than offering it for sale alongside Google's Chrromecast streaming media player. But it's certainly not helping Amazon or its consumers for the company to limit its selection - particularly cutting out such popular competing products as Apple TV - without real justification.
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.Читайте также: Robert Mueller 'demands Donald Trump's Deutsche Bank accounts'
For those willing to abandon Fire TV, just about any other device will play YouTube.
The app does not have any Apple-specific features, but it does leverage the device's Siri search. From there, you can either watch programs through a Prime subscription ($100 per year for all Prime benefits, or $9 per month for Video only), and buy or rent individual shows and movies à la carte (prices vary).
"There is nothing that excites us more than delighting our customers, and we are thrilled for them to stream Prime Video on Apple TV", says Mark Eamer, vice president of Prime Video. Offering access to thousands of the latest movies and TV programmes, you can stream content on demand or, find Prime offers to enable you to buy and keep your favourite shows. They want the content all in one place. As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon.
Either way, with no headway being made in that domain just yet, Fire TV users who open the YouTube app on their devices are now met with a message informing them that "starting on 1 Jan 2018, YouTube will not be available on this device".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
