Peace in our time: YouTube is coming to Fire TV, Amazon Prime Video to support Chromecast

To say that Google's and Amazon's relationship has been going through a rough patch over the past couple of years would be an understatement.

The $40 per month cable alternative first arrived on a selection of newer, high performing Vizio models about half a year ago, with a YouTube engineer on Reddit noting that the company would add more models after monitoring and fine-tuning playback quality.

YouTube TV rolling out full DVR control on more channels

Google's YouTube TV offers a reasonably good value for streaming live TV. It has all your local stations, a fair number of cable networks, and several sports broadcasters. However, the unlimited cloud DVR has been artificially limited on many channels. Rather than the recorded version, some channels force you to watch VOD versions with ads.
