Were you waiting to pick up a Fire TV from Amazon? You waited too long! The device is currently listed as out of stock on Amazon, and is of course unavaialble elsewhere. Don’t worry, though — it’s coming back soon.
A new report suggest Amazon will offer streaming PC titles with their incoming TV device. Further adding intrigue is that it’s said to be a dongle, like the Chromecast or new Roku device. Such a move would put the new device closer to a console than a streaming media stick as we know them to be.
Will they, or won’t they? Rumors are heating up once again that Amazon is working on a set-top box for streaming digital media. Much like a Roku or Apple TV, the Amazon box is said to simply stream media from a variety of sources. Of course, we’d expect that Amazon’s library will be featured prominently.
If you were holding out for the Amazon set-top box for your living room, the wait may have just extended. According to a new report, the anticipated launch for Amazon’s media streaming device has been pushed back, and may not make it in time for the holidays.
Amazon has recently filed a trademark application for the name “Firetube”, which is as curious as it may be ominous. With no other bits of information to go on, we wonder why Amazon -- which filed for the trademark in the US and Canada -- would want that name.
