Amazon is the latest company trying to worm its from your computer and mobile devices to your living room. It is out with a new video streaming device called Amazon Fire TV.

It will deliver online video, music and other content to TV sets. The device costs $99 - and Amazon boasts it works better than other streaming boxes like Apple TV and Google Chromecast. Whether that's true will be up to users to decide but the biggest issue facing Amazon is timing. The other streaming boxes have been on the market for a while and it will take time to see whether the Amazon device will have enough features to pull customers away from their current streaming habits.
