  • There's No Great Reason to Buy an Amazon Fire TV Anymore

Although Amazon has gotten better about promoting rival services, video available through Prime remains prominent. Prime Video has been available for some time on iPhones and iPads, however it had never been available on any of Apple's streaming TV boxes.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said at the company's developer conference in June that Apple's streaming media player would support Amazon's video app by the end of this year.

The following morning, Amazon made good on its plans to launch a Prime Video app on Apple TV. "The Sports tab in the Apple TV app makes it even easier for fans in the USA to track the teams, games and moments that are important to them".

What that means in practical terms is that, if you use the Amazon ecosystem to enjoy movies and TV, you'll no longer be able to dial up YouTube, whether you're jonesing for classic camp like Beware! 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.

Amazon on the other hand points out to the fact that Fire TV, Fire TV Stick and Echo Show access the web version of YouTube which is free to access without any restriction.

Google blocked YouTube access via the Echo Show, Amazon's smart speaker with a touchscreen, on Tuesday and will stop supporting YouTube on Amazon's Fire TV set-top box on January 1.

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.

You can get access to Prime Video if you're a paid Amazon Prime member, buy Prime Video on its own, are now in a 30-day free trial of either Amazon Prime or Prime Video, a Prime Student member or any member of an Amazon Household with shared Prime benefits. Therefore services like Spotify have to add a 30% premium on subscriptions sold through the iOS app, which makes it look like their services are more expensive than Apple's competing services. You're paying for the experience - in particular, integration and syncing with other Apple gadgets. Yes, you get Netflix and, yes, at long last there is now support for Amazon Prime Video as well. If you decide you like it and want to keep the subscription you'll pay £7.99 a month.The service has a range of TV Shows, movies and documentaries for you to stream such as The Walking Dead, Transparent and Peppa Pig. Most of the tech companies that manufacture these devices provide their own streaming services, which had intensified the competition.
