Amazon announced today that YouTube TV is now available on its Fire TV devices for the first time.

“We are excited to announce that YouTube TV is officially available on Fire TV devices including Fire TV Stick (2nd Gen), Fire TV Stick 4K, all-new Fire TV Cube, Toshiba and Insignia Fire TV Edition Smart TVs and more,” Amazon’s Michael Polin writes. “The YouTube TV app brings 70+ channels of live sports, breaking news, must-see shows and movies from major broadcast and popular cable networks to the big screen.”

The arrival of YouTube TV comes after a thawing of relations between Amazon and Google; the firms announced in April that YouTube was returning to Fire TV as well, and that service finally did reappear on Amazon’s devices in July.

As for YouTube TV, Google’s cord-cutting service has been expanding dramatically around the U.S. since its initial launch and is now available nationwide and on every smart device imaginable. Including, again, Fire TV.
