After months of rumors, Amazon (s AMZN) is holding a video event in New York City Wednesday where it is expected to unveil its TV streaming box. I’ll be live blogging from the event. In the meantime, Janko Roettgers shared some thoughts on what we’re likely to see.

Just announced:

  • The Amazon Fire TV. It’s a small set-top box that the company claims is three times as powerful as an Apple TV or Roku.
