Apple TV returns to Amazon after two-year hiatus

Following the release of Amazon’s Prime Video app for Apple TV, the set-top box has made its long-awaited return to Amazon. The set-top box will be available through the company’s online emporium for the suggested retail price of $149.

CNET received a statement from Amazon confirming the news, adding that Google’s Chromecast will also be for sale. “I can confirm that we are assorting Apple TV and Chromecast,” an Amazon spokeswoman said.

The Apple TV has been absent from Amazon’s website for the past two years thanks to soured politics between the two companies. However, the two have seemingly come to terms over the past several months.

First, Apple gave Prime Video stage time during WWDC over the summer. Now, Amazon is returning the favor by making the Apple TV available right before Christmas.

Hopefully, the two companies can continue to have a cordial working relationship.

As for the Chromecast, that’s more of a surprise. The relationship between Amazon and Google has deteriorated significantly over the past few months, with Google announcing it was pulling YouTube from the Echo Show and Fire TV.

According to Amazon, both the Apple TV and Chromecast will be available on Thursday.
