Streaming wars: Amazon launches an improved Fire TV to rival the new Apple TV

According to research firm Parks Associates, the Amazon Fire TV outsold the Apple TV last year, but both devices were beaten by the unsung leader of the streaming world, Roku. Roku, which makes only digital media devices and is not nearly the kind of omnipresent, global corporation that both Amazon and Apple are, has quietly carved out a large slice of the streaming market.

But it could soon lose its top spot if one or both of Apple’s or Amazon’s improved devices takes off. And so, to make this a true Mexican standoff, there are already rumors of a Roku 4 coming this fall.
