Rumor: Amazon to unveil video streaming device at NYC event


For months, Amazon has been rumored to have a video set-top box in the works to rival that of Google Chromecast, Roku and Apple TV. Well, we may finally get to see it on April 2, as the company has sent out a press invite for an event in New York, where it will discuss "an update to its video business."

At many of Amazon's larger press events, CEO Jeff Bezos delivers the presentation, but in this case it appears that Peter Larsen, a vice president in Amazon's Kindle division, will do the honors.

At this point, it's unclear what exactly the new device is and whether it will incorporate anything beyond Amazon's video services. It's been rumored that Amazon's set-top box would also offer a game service.
