Amazon Set Top Box Rumors Reignite
Of course, Amazon’s box would surely be tied in some way to its own Amazon Prime Instant Video service. Amazon Prime has a growing catalog of titles, and it’s heavily investing in a new crop of original programming.
The device will allegedly run (some version of) Android, and so it follows that the box would possibly run apps as well as streaming video. Casual gaming could be on the table, as well, especially as Amazon recently snapped up game developer Double Helix.
Re/code reports that whatever sort of set top box Amazon has in the works, it could be available as early as next month. This should be interesting.
