Report: New Amazon video streaming device coming next month

  • 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.

    Now that's innovation! Following in the footsteps of the likes of Apple and Roku, it's just what the world needs- yet another set set top box. Unless amazon found a way to make this superior to Apple TV it will be another ho hum amazon product

    Investment Bank Jefferies has a AMZN's revene prevision of $ 24.5 Bn for 2014 (+19 YoY). Apple TV had launched its own device on 2007. What about challenger Roku ?
