Apple TV owners on Reddit are reporting the same issue with surround sound with others explaining the problem is not happening through the Prime Video app on other devices like game consoles, and specifically the Sony Playstation 4.
The Prime Video app for the Apple TV supports numerous Apple TV features, this included Siri and the TV app, this allows you to search for videos on Prime from the main TV interface. As of today, Apple TV (2015)and Apple TV 4K can access Amazon Video at long last.
Amazon does not sell the Google Home smart speaker or its streaming device, Chromecast, because they directly compete with Amazon's own products, Amazon Echo and Amazon Fire TV Stick. The beef between these two companies now runs much deeper than streaming video, which makes swift resolution hard to envision. Amazon later reintroduced YouTube to the device, but the voice commands it added violated the use terms and on Tuesday Google again removed the service.
The spat has gotten so bad that Google yesterday took the vary rare step of suspending its Youtube service on a number of Amazon devices, including Fire TV.
The restriction means that Amazon's Echo Show and its Fire TV can only access YouTube through its existing website, not through the app.
Amazon stopped retailing Google's Chromecast and Nexus Player products two years ago - alongside withdrawal of Apple's Apple TV product. According to eMarketer, the Roku ($30) is the most popular streaming device in the U.S.
Amazon, Apple and Google/YouTube all have hardware and video components, and all want to have the widest possible reach. Prime Video is also now available to members in more than 200 countries and territories around the globe. Up until now, you could only use Prime Video with Apple TV via a wireless AirPlay connection, but now that those days are over you can just delete AirPlay.
Either way, with no headway being made in that domain just yet, Fire TV users who open the YouTube app on their devices are now met with a message informing them that "starting on 1 Jan 2018, YouTube will not be available on this device".
Tech firms have their own way of engaging in a fight.
