Amazon Video finally comes to Apple TV

There's No Great Reason to Buy an Amazon Fire TV Anymore Welcome to the Voice Wars

Google said in a recent statement that it had to take extreme steps after Amazon's recent delisting of new Nest products and the e-commerce giant's long-running refusal to sell Chromecast or support Google Cast. "This isn't exactly what you'd expect from one of the biggest profile apps on one of the AV world's most expensive video streaming boxes", he wrote.

The beginning of service fulfilled the promise made by Apple CEO Tim Cook during a conference in June this year. That includes Google's Chromecast, a streaming device that's cheap but slightly tricky to use, since you have to start the video on your iPhone or Android phone and then switch the stream to the TV. The more common Dolby 5.1, found alongside most video formats, is now preferred for most video streaming. Apple has also stayed out of the cloud computing business entirely, allowing Google, Amazon, and Microsoft to offer their own cloud services to app developers. Amazon kicked the Chromecast, Google's television player, off its retail website in 2015, along with Apple Inc's TV player. Google pulled the service because Amazon doesn't sell its products, the company told CNN Tech.

The rivalry among leading brands has been helping other players to strive in the market.

With the app you have access to Amazon's full Prime Video library (provided you have a Prime account). 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.

Amazon is busy making its list and checking it twice, but we didn't have to wait until Christmas to find out who was naughty (YouTube) and who was nice (Apple) on the company's Christmas list. The paid subscription service is going to add new contents on a regular basis. You can get YouTube, Google Play and Amazon video, but not iTunes. And if you're still not satisfied, well, I suppose you could just go out and buy a Roku. Six buttons are arranged in the centre of the remote's body providing quick access to core functions such as Siri voice commands, volume and play/pause, while a clickable, swipeable touchpad tops the remote. There's room for both Amazon and Apple to thrive, especially since video is just one facet of Amazon Prime. 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.
