was just about to post that from marketwatch:
Google and Amazon Bicker: Roku May Win
MARKETWATCH 12:17 PM ET 12/6/2017

Competing with the world's most well capitalized companies, Roku(ROKU) surely appreciates all the help it can get.

Some unsolicited and unintentional assistance just came from two of its deep-pocketed rivals. Alphabet(GOOGL), the parent company of Google, and Amazon(AMZN) are escalating a long-running feud over their respective connected TV devices. Google won't be allowing many of Amazon's streaming media devices to access YouTube (https://www.wsj.com/ articles/google-pulls-youtube-from-amazon-devices-saying-it-isnt-playing-fair-1512516707). Amazon has been declining to allow its own Prime Video service to play over Google's Chromecast devices or to sell those devices on its massive online store.

The upshot is that--heading into the holiday shopping season--both Amazon and Google's connected TV products lack at least some access to content provided by the other. That makes for a strong selling point for Roku(ROKU), which isn't involved in the spat and offers access to both ecosystems of content over its devices. Roku(ROKU) also happens to be one of this year's hottest new tech stocks, which has in turn set up some rather high expectations.



Re: The Only Clear Winner in the Google Amazon War is Roku



my daily motivational reading, what the high and mighty penny pumpers say about luv:

"any knowledge you currently have about trading, finance, accounting, etc... that i don't, are things i can fully absorb within a relatively short period of time if its really important to do so... on the other hand, i am quite certain that you are incapable of grasping even 20% of the knowledge i've gained in math, associated algorithmic coding, physical chemistry, solid-state physics, materials science and engineering over decades of study." 

"There are those who market trades, and there are those who trade markets.
There are those who follow marketers, and those who follow markets.
The marketers feast on their followers; the traders feast on the markets." -luvb2b
