Here are your options if YouTube vanishes from Amazon gizmos

08 December 2017

The Amazon Prime Video streaming app is now available for Apple TV.

With Amazon finally relenting on its years-long holdout, it seems the company may be finally realising it needs support from partners such as Apple if its streaming video service is going to thrive. Google offers other manufacturers its own software for streaming devices called Android TV. This enabled Amazon Prime users to watch movies and videos on Apple TV directly, instead of mirroring content from any Apple device through AirPlay.

Amazon retorted that Google is setting a "disappointing precedent" by imposing a no-go zone around what's otherwise "an open website" on every device in the universe that doesn't carry the Amazon brand.

If the new announcement has you thinking of signing up to Amazon Prime Video you can test it out with a free 30-day trial. (With Fire TV and Apple TV, you can pair wireless headphones).

The exact cause of the bad blood between the two companies has never been confirmed but many speculate the similarity between the Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV devices is the main reason. It charges via Lightning connector, just like an iPhone, and it also has infrared support so you can use it to control the volume on your TV or set-top box. Now, Apple TV app users can watch Amazon Prime video shows like "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel", and movies such as "The Big Sick". Archer does point out that Amazon also does not provide the higher-quality Dolby Vision HDR in Europe, where he resides. And if you're still not satisfied, well, I suppose you could just go out and buy a Roku. But the rivalry between Apple and Amazon came to an end after Apple TV was allowed on Amazon's website. For cheaper models, you can get that through Roku's smartphone app. It also has YouTube, but not Google Play.

The key upgrades for the Apple 4K TV are all on the inside.

Amazon Prime Video App can be used on Apple TV's third, fourth, and fifth generations. This, too, can be synced across all users' Apple devices.

Apple TV 4K isn't the best for United Kingdom sports fans either.

Whether this is all offset by Apple's 4K pledge to upgrade existing HD purchases to 4K depends on how much you already have in your iTunes library, but it's nonetheless irritating that, having spent this much on a streamer, you might have to switch to another device to access The Great British Bake Off in HD.
