Apple TV (Finally) Adds Amazon Video App

But Amazon is still in dispute with Google.

Apple today finally added the Amazon Video app to the Apple TV streaming lineup, the first concrete sign that relations between the two industry giants have normalized.

The two companies had been feuding since 2015 when Amazon announced it would stop selling Apple devices that competed directly with its devices, such as Fire TV devices and tablets.

However, several publications reported last spring that a truce had been reached, clearing the way for Amazon Video to return to the Apple TV and, presumably, for Amazon to once again begin selling competing Apple products.

However, as of this morning, the etailer is still not offering the Apple TV on its site, although it does offer some Apple TV accessories.

Amazon is now involved in a similar battle with Google over competitive products. The latter is threatening to pull YouTube from Fire TV devices unless Amazon begins selling Google products such as the Chromecast.
