Amazon is famous for being just as good about competing with others with its products, as it is about allowing others to compete with the company by selling their products on its online store. For years you’ve been able to acquire Google’s Chromecast and the Apple TV, just as well as you could by the company’s Fire TV offerings. Sadly it seems that Amazon is not too happy with how competing products are biting into its business, and it just did something about it.

If you remember, Amazon alerted both Apple and Google a few days ago that it would be yanking the Google Chromecast and the Apple TV from its online store given the “confusion it would generate in the fact that these services don’t offer Prime Video.” It’s an odd excuse though given how Amazon could simply create apps that are compatible with these services and solve its problem, which could also lead us to believe that there is more of a problem that meets the eye. As of today Amazon has officially removed these products from the store, and we have no cue if these companies are working on reaching an agreement or not.

Certain Apple TV accessories are still available on Amazon, but if you want Apple’s brand new Apple TV, you’ll have to search for it elsewhere for now.
