The company has sent out press invites for an event in New York on April 2nd, in which the company has promised an "update for our video business."
An Amazon set-top box would offer streaming access to a plethora of apps, just like rivals Apple TV, Roku and WD Live. In addition, the box is expected to run on Amazon's own version of Android, Fire, which should mean access to the Amazon App Store of curated Android apps.
Finally, the company's set-top is rumored to come with a discounted or trial subscription to Prime, the company's $99 per year service that gives access to the free Netflix rival Amazon Prime Video and potentially an upcoming rumored unlimited streaming music service.
