YouTube TV comes to Amazon Fire TV
YouTube TV comes to Amazon Fire TV. Amazon announced in a blog post that the service is now available on a wide range of streaming devices. It can also be found on “Fire TV Edition” smart TVs, which have the Fire TV operating system built in. The cost of YouTube TV is currently set at $ 50 per month.
Amazon and Google have been involved in a long-term dispute that has since disabled the ability to use Google services on Amazon computers. Google refused to allow its streaming apps on Amazon hardware, and Amazon withheld Chromecast support from its Amazon Prime Video video streaming app. YouTube hit Fire TV in July, and now it’s its brother’s turn to focus on live TV, which is great news for consumers of live content.
List of Amazon devices with YouTube TV
YouTube TV includes more than 70 live channels across the United States, covering sports, news, entertainment, and movies. The latest channels to be added to YouTube TV were the Discovery line, including the Discovery Channel, as well as HGTV, Food Network, and TLC. Other networks available on YouTube TV include CNN, ESPN, and FX.
Amazon has provided a list of devices that should now be compatible with YouTube TV:
- Fire TV Stick (2nd generation)
- Fire TV Stick 4K
- Fire TV Cube (2nd generation)
- Fire TV Edition smart TVs (including Toshiba, Insignia, Element and Westinghouse models)
- Fire TV Cube (1st generation)
- Fire TV (2nd generation)
- Fire TV (3rd Generation – Hanging Design)
However, interestingly, Amazon reports that Google’s service does not yet support the Fire TV Stick or the first-generation Fire TV. Well I guess we shouldn’t complain too much as we see giant leaps for the two tech giants. For now, YouTube TV is coming to Amazon Fire TV.
