Amazon to sell Apple TV, Google Chromecast after two-year ban
After two years Apple TV and Chromecast are returning to Amazon.
In a statement, an Amazon spokesperson said I can confirm we sorting Apple TV and Chromecast.
That means Amazon will stock up on the devices.
As of Thursday, December 14th, Amazon had listings for the Google Chromecast and the Apple TV 4k, but neither were available for order at the time.
In 2015, Amazon stopped selling Google Chromecast and Apple TV devices.
Saying, "It's important that the streaming-media players we sell interact well with Prime Video in order to avoid customer confusion." At the time, Amazon Prime Video was not easily viewable on either the Chromecast or Apple TV.
Googled pulled YouTube because of a lack of reciprocity.
Particularly that Amazon did not carry the Chromecast or the Google Home.
Amazon's recent statements saying the Chromecast will return looks like a good sign.
A Google spokesperson said, "We are in productive discussions with Amazon to reach an agreement for the benefit of our mutual customers." Earlier this month Amazon Prime Video finally came to the Apple TV.
The app can be found in the App Store.
