Amazon has announced that YouTube TV will be streaming through its Fire TV products today. An app for the service will be distributed to many Fire TV sets, except for the first generation Fire TV and Fire TV Stick.
Launched in 201
Google's TV streaming service will be available through Fire Generation's second-generation Fire TV Stick, TV Stick 4K, Fire TV Cube and Smart TVs with built-in Fire TV, including Element, Insignia, Toshiba and models Westinghouse. Some older models, including the first generation Fire TV Cube, second generation Fire TV and third generation Fire TV Pendant, are also being notified of the update. But even here the owners of the Fire TV and the Fire TV Stick of the first generation have bad luck.
Today's news is right on track for this year's NFL season, the MLB playoffs and TV premieres. It also stands in stark contrast to the years of anti-competitive tensions between Amazon and Google before companies agreed earlier this year that they would bring their video streaming apps onto each other's platforms – a decision that has already been taken is Prime Video on Chromecast and Android TV.
