YouTube TV Debuts On Fire TV Devices

As promised in April, YouTube TV, Google’s paid streaming service, is now available on a wide range of Amazon Fire TV devices and TVs.

Amazon announced the news in a blog post today. 

YouTube TV, which now costs $50 per month, offers more than 70 channels, including live sports, news, series and movies.

It’s now available on second-generation and 4K Fire TV Sticks; first- and second-generation Fire TV Cubes; Fire TV Editions smart TVs (Toshiba, Insignia, Element, Westinghouse); and second- and (Pendant design) third-generation Fire TVs. However, Google’s service is not compatible with the first-generation Fire TV Stick or Fire TV.

The YouTube app arrived on Fire TV in July.

The companies’ April announcement of several cooperative initiatives marked the end of a prolonged feud between the two companies.

In late 2017, Google, citing Amazon’s refusal to sell Google products on, pulled YouTube apps from Fire TV and Echo Show devices. Amazon, in turn, refused to provide support for Google’s Chromecast from its Prime Video streaming app.
