Google chose to implement the restriction since Amazon does not sell Google's products. Those days are over: Amazon Prime Video, which has a pretty great selection of titles and a very poor interface to find them, is now available on Apple TV, per The Verge. Customers can also enjoy Thursday Night Football live on Apple TV 4K and Apple TV.
Starting Wednesday, Amazon Prime users will be able to more easily watch movies and TV shows directly on Apple TV, rather than using a workaround to mirror content from an iPhone or another Apple device via AirPlay.
Amazon stopped retailing Google's Chromecast and Nexus Player products two years ago - alongside withdrawal of Apple's Apple TV product.

Most of the tech companies that manufacture these devices provide their own streaming services, which had intensified the competition.
Amazon's own streaming device, Fire TV ($70), competes directly with the pricier Apple TV ($149).

Google began blocking YouTube access for Echo Show users this week, and is informing Amazon Fire TV users that the service won't be available on their devices after the first of next year. In September, Google blocked YouTube support for the Echo Show and at the time said Amazon's implementation "violates our terms of service, creating a broken user experience".
There is no obligation for Amazon to carry products of any kind, and the company has exercised its editorial decision over its selection and products before.
All of which means that Amazon and Google can safely invest in the Apple ecosystem, without fear that they're creating an existential threat.
As much previously reported, Apple insists on taking 30% of sales made through its app store, both on apps that you pay to download, and also those where a subscription is charged within the app itself. Nest being a sister company to Google that makes various net-connected gizmos.
These kinds of disputes can be confusing for consumers who probably just want to watch the things they like on the devices they've bought. "Given this lack of reciprocity, we are no longer supporting YouTube on Echo Show and Fire TV".
