Both Google and Amazon have very similar offerings when it comes to their video and audio integrations. There are some major differences that should be considered prior to designing the audio/video network in your smart home.

Youtube TV and Google Streaming Set Up

The main difference, especially in Philadelphia, between the capabilities of Google and Amazon is Google’s launch of Youtube TV. Youtube TV is a flat $35 per month for many of the mainstream cable channels that people typically watch. This app integrates directly with Google Home and Google Chromecast. Youtube TV is only available in some markets and Philadelphia is one of those markets which Youtube TV is available. Reach out to mySmartHomePhilly to learn more about Youtube TV and how its integration into your smart home can save you on your monthly cable bill.

Prime Video and Amazon Streaming Set Up

Amazon has its own video streaming platform, but it does not have the same capabilities as Youtube TV. Prime Video does offer a bevy of movies and tv shows that are a great add for those who are not necessarily locked into live televsiion. For those who are looking for live television through an audio video network that is set up around the Fire TV there is an option available. Hulu is compatible with Amazon Alexa, however; Hulu is also available through Google Home and is not unique to the Amazon platform.
