Amazon to Ban Sales of Apple TV and Chromecast

Category: General News
Posted: 04:01PM

As of October 29 Amazon plans to discontinue sales of the Apple TV and Google Chromecast on its website, advising all merchants through a memo. Amazon made this move as "it wants to sell living room devices that are fully compatible and optimized for its Amazon Prime Video service," adding that "Roku, Xbox, PlayStation, and Fire TV are excellent choices." The divide between the companies appears to be centered around an unwillingness to share revenue from content sales with Apple and Google. Consumers will still be able to get their hands on the devices through many other reputable retailers.
