Amazon set-top reportedly delayed

  • Ahead of Amazon's (AMZN +1%) Q3 report (due after the close), The Verge reports the e-commerce giant has delayed the launch of its expected Web streaming set-top, and that it's "increasingly unlikely" the device will launch in time for the holidays.
  • The WSJ reported on Oct. 3 Amazon wants to launch the set-top by the holidays, and that the device will support both Amazon and 3rd-party content. When the set-top finally does launch, it'll have to directly compete against market leaders Roku and Apple, and indirectly against game console vendors, whose systems offer plenty of streaming options.

    Stock went up today because Amazon is releasing Q3 results.
