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

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

"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services", reads Google's statement. Amazon's suite of voice-controlled devices has outsold Google's so far, according to a study by research firm eMarketer from earlier this year.

In 2015, Amazon stopped selling several of Google's hardware products online, including the search engine giant's Chromecast video and audio-streaming dongles.

Google has announced plans to stop Amazon's Fire TV streaming devices using YouTube from the start of 2018, as a row between the two companies intensifies.

Amazon said in a statement, "Google is setting a disappointing precedent by selectively blocking customer access to an open website".

Philippines to seek refund, sue Sanofi over dengue vaccine: Health Minister
He also would demand that Sanofi set up an indemnity fund for vaccinated children who would later be hospitalized due to dengue. She added that dengue infection can be hard to discern, as the majority of infected individuals show no symptoms.

It said it hoped to resolve the issue with Google as soon as possible but customers could access YouTube through the internet - not an app - on the devices in the meantime.

A tit-for-tat move, as Amazon refuses to sell many of Google's products that compete with its own products on its retail website. Amazon's Prime Video platform has not been supported by Amazon on Google's Chromecast TV. Not so with Google. Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and FireTV.

Google is giving Amazon a leeway to negotiate; otherwise, YouTube will be pulled from Amazon Fire and Fire TV Stick as well starting January 1. Google is miffed by the fact that it is losing ad revenue from Fire TV which was the best selling streaming device in United States and India.
