Report: New Amazon video streaming device coming next month

|By:, SA News Editor

Amazon (AMZN) will start delivering its much-discussed video streaming device in early April, according to sources.

The company will enter the competitive market for set-top boxes with an eye on more than just extra revenue: Gathering data on consumer behavior could give Amazon an edge in several areas.

Pricing on the device from Amazon is unclear, although some tie-in to Amazon Prime is anticipated.

Major retail chains such as Best Buy and Staples are expected to carry the product.
