Google to Pull YouTube from Amazon Echo Show, Fire TV

Google to block YouTube from two Amazon devices

YouTube returned to the Echo Show last month, before being pulled again on Tuesday.

After customers of Amazon's Echo Show speaker and its Fire TV streaming device discovered yesterday that Google planned to pull YouTube videos from their devices, Amazon was quick to hit out.

You will still be able to access YouTube on the Amazon Fire TV until January 1, however, so if you're a user, I'd start making the most of it because I don't see either company backing down on this one.

Google certainly took its time, but has clearly had enough and has made the decision to pull YouTube - the largest public video platform in the world - from being accessed on Amazon's hardware devices such as Echo Show and Fire TV.

"Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and FireTV", the statement added. Amazon also doesn't allow Google products to have access to its Prime Video streaming service, the statement said. Amazon has sold that device for longer than the Echo Show, meaning more customers may now be affected.

Ballon d'Or 2017: and Pelé bets are on ... Cristiano Ronaldo !
Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde has made it very clear that he has no interest in the Ballon d'Or ceremony on Thursday. Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi? "I think he should win the Ballon d'Or because his year was awesome ".

The dispute between Amazon and Google mirrors the face-offs that occasionally crop up between pay-TV providers and TV networks when it comes time to re-negotiate their deals.

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. There are always two sides to a feud, and the on-going beef between Amazon and Google is a testament to this fact. The Chromecast streaming product was removed from Amazon.com in 2015. The group, USTelecom, has been trying to persuade skeptics that internet providers will preserve equal access to all digital services, even if the Federal Communications Commission adopts a proposal to rescind current "net neutrality" regulations. "Seems like some of the biggest internet companies can't say the same". Apple Inc., meantime, said Amazon Prime Video would become available as an app for Apple TV by the end of the year, but it hasn't yet been released.

In a statement, Google said, "Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make (its) Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of (our sister company) Nest's latest products".

Roku's market-leading streaming players are sold through Amazon.
