Google and Amazon are going to war over streaming services. Starting January 1st, Amazon Fire TV owners will no longer be able to access YouTube. Google is also cutting access for a second time to Amazon's Echo Show video device.

"We've been trying to reach agreement with Amazon to give consumers access to each other's products and services," the spokeswoman said in a statement. "But Amazon doesn't carry Google products like Chromecast and Google Home, doesn't make Prime Video available for Google Cast users, and last month stopped selling some of Nest's latest products.
