Amazon entered the streaming media player thunderdome with the unveiling of Amazon Fire TV on April 2.
Amazon is now in a battle royal versus existing streaming media device contenders, including Roku, Apple TV and Google Chromecast.
Amazon’s Fire TV is a set-top box ($99) that features a wide-variety of streaming content, including movies, TV shows, games and more. Most of the content is delivered via apps from the Amazon Appstore that are compatible with Fire TV.
