You Can Now Watch Amazon Prime Video on Your Apple TV

  • The two firms have fallen out over You Tube and exposure to each other's products

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. As the world's largest online retailer, Amazon has tremendous sway over what people buy, while the results delivered by Google's ubiquitous search engine often help determine what people do on and off the web.

Both Amazon Prime Video and YouTube are available on Roku, a streaming stick not manufactured by tech industry behemoths. 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. This is accessed via the Movies, TV and Music apps on the Apple TV 4K's homepage. Google blamed a "lack of reciprocity" on Amazon's part for the decision.

A test of audio capabilities on a second-generation Amazon Fire TV device showed full 5.1 sound support, unlike through the tvOS app. "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website", Amazon's statement said. "We hope to resolve this with Google as soon as possible". Without some broad-ranging truce, in which each company agrees to treat each other's services equally and let consumers decide what's best, Amazon and Google would only be undermining themselves. Variety reported that Amazon's latest implementation also had some terms-of-service issues, which were related to the way it used voice commands.

Pope Francis: I Cannot Hide 'My Deep Concern' Over Jerusalem
In his remarks, Pope Francis said the Holy Land was the "land par excellence of dialogue between God and mankind". He also voiced his hope that "peace and prosperity" would prevail for the Palestinian people.

To find Prime Video content on your Apple TV you'll need to install the app and sign in with your login details. However, soon after, both companies went silent about the launch.

At this point, it's easy to see why Amazon wouldn't want to support Google's products, and vice versa: Each company is using hardware to fortify themselves while attacking their rival's core business.

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. As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon.
