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

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

YouTube is also cutting access Monday for a second time to Amazon's Echo Show video device. They point out that Amazon does not have the Prime Video app for Google Chromecast devices and its website does not sell Google products like the Chromecast and Google Home.

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.

In September, Google cut off YouTube from the Amazon Echo Show, which had displayed videos on its touchscreen without video recommendations, channel subscriptions and other features.

Two tech giants are in a messy streaming video fight right now, leaving consumers squeezed in the middle. 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.

Blake Griffin is out for up to two months. "When we just take [three-pointers], it makes us a better team", Teague said. He shot a disappointing 35.5 percent, including 26 percent from 3-point range, in nine games before he was sidelined.

"YouTube is all about maximising the number of people who see its content, and Amazon wants to be the so-called "everything store", he said, but in the end it is consumers who will bear the brunt of commercial tensions between the two companies. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon". "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website", Amazon's statement said.

A statement from Amazon on Tuesday didn't address Google's claims.

The move comes after Google failed to reach an agreement with Amazon to provide support for the latter's services on the electronics and cloud computing company's products and services. "We hope to resolve this with Google as soon as possible". As of Wednesday, Apple TV owners are finally able to add Amazon's Prime Video to their devices - about six months after Apple chief executive Tim Cook promised the service was on its way. 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. As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon.
