Amazon to Ban Sale of Apple TV and Google Chromecast

Spencer Soper, Bloomberg:

The Seattle-based Web retailer sent an e-mail to its marketplace sellers that it will stop selling Apple TV and Google’s Chromecast. No new listings for the products will be allowed and posting of existing inventory will be removed Oct. 29, Amazon said. Amazon’s streaming service, called Prime Video, doesn’t run easily on its rival’s hardware.

Amazon can make their streaming service available on the Apple TV and Chromecast. That’s their prerogative. But, you know, it’s business, and the consumer gets caught in the crossfire.
