You Can Now Watch Amazon Prime Video on Your Apple TV

YouTube cracks down on disturbing videos of children

Amazon's own streaming device, Fire TV ($70), competes directly with the pricier Apple TV ($149).

For Amazon, this was a week of war and peace.

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 Prime Video is one of the most eagerly anticipated apps to come to Apple TV, so we're excited to bring all of that great content to customers", Apple's senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue said in a statement on Apple's website. The new app, first announced back in June, is a full endorsement of Apple's platform, supporting 4K HDR video and unique tvOS features like Siri search and TV app aggregation.

Pope calls for 'status quo' of Jerusalem to be respected
The leader of the Catholic Church said he " cannot keep silent " about the brewing conflict over Jerusalem's status. Trump is due on Wednesday to recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital and set in motion the relocation of the U.S.

Using the digital media device you can now stream Amazon Prime Original series and movies and watch them on your TV.

Now everyone can take a deep breath and relax: Amazon Prime Video is only a button click away on your Apple TV device.

This news will likely end a long-standing feud between Apple and Amazon, two companies that have more money than you will ever see in your life, so you probably shouldn't worry too much about their feuds. 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. The Chromecast streaming product was removed from Amazon.com in 2015.

Google is hoping to pressure Amazon into selling Google's products by taking away access to the world's most widely watched video service.

Russian Federation banned from Olympics, athletes can compete as 'neutral'
The IOC also imposed lifetime Olympic ban on Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko, organizer of soccer's 2018 World Cup. After an investigation, the International Olympic Committee began stripping Sochi medals.

By comparison, Apple isn't as much of a threat to either company.

Apple is a little late to the party when it comes to 4K. Nest being a sister company to Google that makes various net-connected gizmos. You get voice searches through Google's Assistant - playback controls with some apps, weather info and some data you might never think to ask a TV, such as flight status. Sadly if they do not reach an agreement you will have to mirror your smartphone on to the Amazon streaming device to watch YouTube on the big screen. There's room for both Amazon and Apple to thrive, especially since video is just one facet of Amazon Prime. They say Amazon is not playing fair with Google.

Staying out of the fray has been good for business.
