Amazon May Launch A YouTube Rival

Amazon Brings Web Browsing to Fire TV - Amazon - Press Room - Press Release

Is Amazon preparing OpenTube to compete with Google's YouTube as companies spar?

It is also possible that the service would be integrated with Amazon's Alexa, but it was not mentioned in the report. The filing came on the same day Google announced its intentions to block YouTube from Amazon's Echo Show and Fire TV devices.

The retail giant filed trademark requests on December 5 for the names "AmazonTube" and "OpenTube".

Another bone of contention between Google and Amazon is the latter's reluctance to comply with cast technology, the same that powers Google's Chromecast devices. Amazon recently filed for trademarks on "AmazonTube" and "OpenTube", suggesting it may ...

The filings outline an app for "transmitting, accessing, receiving, uploading, downloading, encoding, decoding, streaming, broadcasting, sharing, displaying, formatting, manipulating, organizing, book marking, tagging, storing, caching, and transferring electronic works". Amazon had explained the move by saying it wanted to avoid confusing customers who might expect its Prime Video service to be available on devices sold by Amazon. However, it might include video clips from YouTube. Of course, Amazon has reasons to justify its act given that Chromecast rivals its own streaming devices such as the Fire TV. Amazon and Google, which is owned by Alphabet, square off in many areas, from cloud computing and online search, to selling voice-controlled gadgets like the Google Home and Amazon Echo Show.

Sound familiar? Let's be honest: We all know what's going on here.

Fund Federal Plan to Insure Children
House Speaker Paul Ryan and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi urging that legislation be taken up as soon as possible to extend CHIP. The House of Representatives passed long-term CHIP funding that is awaiting action in the Senate.

Then again, this could also just easily be Amazon's answer to YouTube's threats in their ongoing spat, TechCrunch notes.

Mark Mayo, Senior Vice President of Firefox, said: "Bringing Firefox to Fire TV is an exciting new way to reach our users and serve up more of the full web to everyone". However, this version will not be available on Amazon services.

Amazon has filed a trademark application for a video streaming service called AmazonTube.

A chance to promote its content, slight Google, and keep customers hooked on the Fire TV?
