According to rumor after rumor, Amazon is working on a TV box that will let users watch Amazon Instant Video on their televisions. But like Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets, the Amazon TV box won’t be limited to running only AMazon apps and services.

According to GigaOm’s sources, the box will also support Hulu Plus, Netflix, and other online video sources. That could make it competitive with other TV boxes from Roku, Apple, and others.

  1. Unless it supports over 750 channels I don’t really see this as a better STB than the Roku. Given all the talk about Amazon raising the price of Prime memberships Amazon may have an uphill struggle. Sure, they have a lot of muscle in the market, but launching their own box will also draw attention to Rokus.
