Report: Amazon Has a Kindle TV Streaming Box on the Way – Gizmodo

Report: Amazon Has a Kindle TV Streaming Box on the WayBloomberg Businessweek is reporting that Amazon will soon be announcing its own streaming box to pair up with its Amazon Instant Video and video on demand.

This rumor comes on the heels of Amazon’s recent release of 14 original series pilots, which shows its commitment not only to video, but to original video. It only makes sense that the same people who brought you Amazon-centric content delivery devices like the Kindle and the Kindle Fire would want a piece of the set-top box pie as well. And given how everything else in the Kindle line eschews hardware profit in favor of piping sweet, sweet Amazon content directly to your face, you can bet this sucker will be cheap.

Among the many questions is whether or not this box would let services like Netflix and Hulu on board, and if the Kindle Fire is any indication, the answer is yes. There’s also no certainty that the box would bear the Kindle name, but a “Kindle TV” would fit just nicely into the “Here are all your Amazon goodies” ecosystem created by the original Kindle reader and advanced by the Fire. But when it comes to all the juicy specifics, we’ll just have to wait and see. [Bloomberg]
