Amazon's response to Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, etc. was officially launched today: http://gizmodo.com/amazons-fire-tv-everything-you-need-to-know-1556889628 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CX5P8FC/ref=...;pf_rd_i=507846 The list of apps/services supported seems quite extensive. With some apps (like Plex) you should be able to stream your own local content, if I'm not mistaken. It's also a gaming console. Of interest to some audio gearheads: there is a dedicated optical output in addition to HDMI. Anybody planning on buying one? I already have two Chromecasts, so I'll probably not be swinging $100 for Fire TV, despite the added features.
