Customer Confusion

Amazon banned Apple TV and Google Chromecast from its site in October 2015, explaining that the move is meant to “avoid customer confusion.”

A spokesperson for Amazon told CNET: “Prime Video has become an important part of Prime. It’s important that the streaming-media players we sell interact well with Prime Video in order to avoid customer confusion.”

On Thursday, a spokeswoman for Amazon confirmed to CNET that the company is stocking up on Apple TV and Chromecast.


CNET said Amazon already added product listing pages for Apple TV and two versions of Apple TV 4K, and for Google Chromecast and Chromecast Ultra.

The devices are not yet available, but customers can expect them to be ready anytime.

CNET said the lifting of the ban on Apple TV and Chromecast is a huge relief to customers who felt they were on the losing end in the dispute involving the three companies.

The move may defuse growing tension between Amazon and Google, which resulted in Google pulling YouTube from Amazon devices recently, CNET added.

Amazon’s decision to sell the two devices comes more than a week after Apple announced that Amazon Prime Video is already available on Apple TV in more than 100 countries.
