Amazon Raises a Walled Garden by Booting Apple TV, Google Chromecast

Amazon also has a strained relationship with Google. That’s in part because of Amazon’s decision to use a “forked” version of Android for its tablet software, but it’s mostly because Amazon is increasingly cutting into Google’s core search business. Amazon doesn’t have a video app for Google’s Chromecast or Android video devices, either.

Apple’s new box is supposed to go on the market in late October, the same time that Amazon’s ban kicks in. Amazon, Google and Roku are also rolling out new versions of their streaming hardware. Amazon introduced its first streaming TV box and stick in 2014; Parks Associates reports Amazon overtook Apple for third place that year.
