Amazon’s motivation for pulling Apple TV and Chromecast from its online offerings a mystery

Is Amazon really retaliating against both platforms for not letting Amazon have an app on their TV systems? Maybe, but there have so far been no reports that Amazon has submitted an Apple TV app to Apple that has been rejected. Amazon currently has an app on the Roku system, and its Amazon Video app for mobile products is in the App Store and Google Play.

“This has the potential to hurt Amazon as much as it does Apple and Google,” Bloomberg quotes Barbara Kraus, an analyst at Parks Associates. “As a retailer, I want to give people a reason to come to me. When I take out best-selling brands, I take away those reasons.”
