Amazon to Once Again Sell Chromecast, Apple TV

Amazon to Once Again Sell Chromecast, Apple TV

Following a years-long Cold War between Amazon, Google, and Apple over the companies' different TV streaming devices, winter seems to be coming to an end.

"I can confirm that we are assorting Apple TV and Chromecast", an Amazon spokesperson told Variety via email, while declining to comment any further on any agreement between the two companies.

Amazon has announced that it will restart selling both, Google Chromecast and Apple TV on its online store.

Plus there are customers who might prefer shopping on Amazon, whether it be because they just prefer the platform, or have credit that they'd like to use, and so on.

All of the devices are listed as "Currently unavailable" at the time of this post, and Amazon hasn't said exactly when they'll become available again. At the time, the retailer noted that it wanted to avoid the customer confusion of selling devices that didn't work with their own streaming service.

In early December, Google and Amazon's product dispute escalated resulting in the removal of YouTube from the Echo Show, but more importantly Fire TV.

That changed last week when the Prime Video app finally arrived on Apple TV, seemingly clearing the way for Apple TV, at least, to return to Amazon. Last week Alphabet-owned Google pulled YouTube from several of Amazon's devices.

While the Apple TV now supports Amazon Prime Video, the Chromecast still does not. "We hope we can reach an agreement to resolve these issues soon".
