The company supposedly wants to launch its video news app sometime this year, giving its customers yet another source of free content. Amazon could even serve up adverts through the video news app, sort of like Roku Channel now does. Roku Channel can also be accessed on third-party devices, and the app itself even has add-on subscriptions like Showtime and Starz, all right inside the app itself.
