In 9 days, Amazon will reportedly stop allowing new listings for Apple TV and Google video-streaming products, and it will take down older listings, Bloomberg reported earlier this month.The official excuse is that these devices don't work well with its video streaming service, Prime.
Amazon far and away sold the bulk of them: 71% of Chromecast and 49% of Apple TV online purchases."Through Amazon alone, Google and Apple did about $85 million the past 12 months," a 1010 spokesperson tells us.
"Factoring in growth and the likely continued popularity of these devices, Google and Apple could easily have done over $100 million in sales of streaming TV devices on Amazon over the next 12 months," the spokesperson adds.
