MENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) – Amazon is angling for a truce in its two-year battle with Apple and Google over streaming gadgets: It says it is preparing to put Apple TV and Chromecast back on sale.
A spokeswoman for Amazon confirmed Friday it is preparing to sell the devices. But links for the products indicate they are still unavailable.
Amazon stopped selling Apple TV streaming devices in late 2015 in retaliation for Apple not making Amazon’s Prime Video app available on Apple TVs. It also stopped selling Google’s popular Chromecast streaming device that year.
But Apple made the Prime Video app available on Apple TV last week.
Google had stepped up the pressure, and has threatened to pull YouTube from Amazon’s Fire TV on Jan. 1 in a growing impasse.
