Google's TV service, YouTube TV, is now available on Amazon's Fire TV devices, ending the feud between the two companies.
YouTube TV on FireTV
After years of dispute, Amazon and Google reached an agreement earlier this year to bring Amazon Prime Video to Google's devices as well as YouTube to Amazon devices.
YouTube TV, Google's TV service, was the last missing piece of the puzzle. Amazon has announced that YouTube TV is now available as an app for most of its FireTV devices and sticks as well as TVs with the FireTV platform built-in.
- "The YouTube TV app is now available on Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, all-new Fire TV Cube, all Toshiba, Insignia, Element, and Westinghouse Fire TV Edition smart TVs and previous generation Fire TV devices including Fire TV Cube (1st Gen), Fire TV (2nd Gen), Fire TV (3rd Gen — Pendant Design). The YouTube TV app is not compatible with Fire TV Stick (1st Gen) and Fire TV (1st Gen)," the company wrote in a blog post.
YouTube TV offers over 70 live channels for $50 per month in the US. Since launch, Google has hiked the monthly subscription price several times.
