Amazon is finally back in the business of selling Apple TVs.

The online retail giant stopped selling Apple’s set-top-boxes back in 2015. But the company is extending an olive branch to both Apple and Google and has created new listings for the Apple TV and Chromecast.

Amazon informed CNET today that the new Apple TV 4K would be available to purchase soon. The company previously posted listings for the Apple TV 4K in September but quickly removed it.

“I can confirm that we are assorting Apple TV and Chromecast,” an Amazon spokeswoman told CNET. The company offered no further statements.

Customers can choose from one of three Apple TV units. There’s an old 32GB 4th generation Apple TV. Amazon is also carrying the Apple TV 4K in 32GB and 64GB variants.

The availability of Apple TV on Amazon comes just over a week after Amazon’s Prime Video service was finally made available on Apple TV. When Amazon pulled Apple TV from its stores in 2015 the company blamed the move partially on the absence of Prime Video from the device.
