Google to Block YouTube on Amazon Devices

Google to Block YouTube on Amazon Devices

If you're looking to watch Amazon Prime TV movies in Dolby 5.1 sound through your Apple TV, be ready for a disappointment. At the Recode conference previous year, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said: "When we sell those devices, 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".

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on whether Apple TV will return to Amazon's online store now that it supports Amazon Prime. Browsing can be achieved simply by drilling down through specific apps and services in the traditional manner, but the Apple TV 4K is much easier to use if you use the Siri remote's voice search facility.

And now, if consumers want to get the best of streaming from the top two providers - Netflix and Amazon - along with the world's most popular video network, YouTube - their two best options are Roku on the low end and the pricey Apple TV.

Doug Jones calls for Sen. Al Franken to resign
Since then, multiple women have come forward saying Franken inappropriately touched them during photo ops and at other events. A group of Senate Democratic women came out almost simultaneously on Wednesday to call for the resignation of Minnesota Sen.

Apple TV owners will have access to Amazon Original Movies and Prime Originals such as The Grand Tour, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and The Tick along with the upcoming premieres of Jean-Claude Van Johnson on December 15 and Phillip K. Dick's Electric Dreams on January 12.

For those willing to abandon Fire TV, just about any other device will play YouTube. For cheaper models, you can get that through Roku's smartphone app.

Amazon Prime Video does have an iOS app - it's worth noting - so that doesn't entirely explain why Amazon doesn't stock those Apple devices. Yes, that's correct: Amazon Prime Video on Apple TV is finally a reality.

Global airlines' industry profit to hit $38.4b in 2018: IATA
Inbound travel to the U.S. seems to be deterred by the additional security measures now involved with travelling to that country. In fact, the organization expects airline unit costs to increase 4.3% in 2018 compared to unit revenue growth of 3.5%.

It's also worth remembering that it supports playback of both music and video content via AirPlay, so even if the selection of native Apple TV apps doesn't cover your favourite service, you may still be able to stream it to your TV. However, until then you can use the method mentioned above.

Google also takes 30% of sales made through its app platform, although with less strict controls than Apple, particularly in terms of directing people to other places they can sign up. "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website", Amazon's statement said. As of time of writing, the product was not listed on Amazon. Most of the tech companies that manufacture these devices provide their own streaming services, which had intensified the competition.
