Here are your options if YouTube vanishes from Amazon gizmos

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - You'll still have ways to watch YouTube service if it disappears from Amazon's Fire TV streaming device.

Google is threatening to pull YouTube from Fire TV as a fierce battle between the two tech heavyweights escalates. The latest dispute is over the e-commerce company's refusal to sell some Google devices that compete with Amazon's products.

If a resolution isn't reached by Jan. 1, Fire TV owners can still watch on phones, tablets or personal computers. That includes Amazon Fire tablets, as Google hasn't threatened to block those yet.

As for streaming TV alternatives, just about any other device will play YouTube. Not all of them will play video from Amazon - though Apple TV just got Amazon's app Wednesday.
