Amazon’s entry into the video box market has been long rumored, but it seems their plans will come into fruition next week. The company has invited reporters, with the above promo image, to gather for an “update on our video business” hosted by Amazon VP Peter Larsen in New York next Wednesday, April 2.
This is probably going to be a box to compete with products like Apple TV, Roku, and of course, Google’s Chromecast. They already have a video streaming service, Amazon Prime, that competes with other similar services. Our questions about the device will be answered next Wednesday, so stay tuned.
