Here's why Amazon might release a streaming service

Firefox for Fire TV

Amazon has now included the Firefox browser on all of its Fire TV devices. Web browsing feature on Fire TV goes live in over 100 countries.

With this, customers can now access the World Wide Web (www) including popular sites as well as local and global news sites, video sharing services, cloud photo sites and other social news, sports and entertainment content. Yes, last week around we did report how Amazon is planning to reintroduce the Google Chromecast lineup on its stores after discontinuing the same for two years. 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. If that's not a dead giveaway that they're referring to something similar to YouTube, the names "Amazontube" and "Opentube" should be a huge clue.

Amazon's Silk browser was made available for some Fire TV users, back in November, under a silent release.

Rise in number of requests for data from Facebook in Ireland
Facebook had seen a big increase in the number of requests to stop people seeing content that broke local laws, said Mr Sonderby. The social media company also took down 217,265 posts from Facebook driven by counterfeit claims, and 108,094 from Instagram.

Amazon has filed a trademark application for a video streaming service called AmazonTube. In retaliation, Google has prevented any official YouTube app - or Google app, for that matter - from making its way to Amazon's Appstore, though that has been the case for a long time.

According to a post on TV Answer Man, Amazon filed for trademark requests for "Amazon Tube" and "Open Tube", two possible names for Amazon's competing product on the very day that YouTube posted the warning stating it would be removing YouTube access from the Echo Show and Fire TV devices from the 1st of January 2018. Then make sure the "Deliver to" line on the right side of the page is directed to your Fire TV device before hitting "Get" to install it. Amazon is hoping to implement new tech that would prevent ads from running against inappropriate content to attract advertisers that left YouTube. "Starting today, we will be able to expand the already great Fire TV experience by enabling viewers to surface a multitude of web content - including videos - through Firefox".
