Amazon is reportedly working on a new DVR

According to sources who spoke with Bloomberg, Amazon is hard at work on a DVR for the Fire TV and smartphones. Its Fire TV already streams live content to the Amazon Channels service but can not store the video. We've reached out to Amazon for comment and will include it when we hear back.

Bloomberg quoted an unnamed source as saying that the device, internally code-named "Frank", would have physical storage and connect to Amazon's Fire TV boxes.

The e-commerce giant's Lab 126 research and development center is working on the DVR, the latest in a series of connected gadgets aimed at the home.

Fire TV or not Fire TV?

Networked DVRs on the other hand can be placed anywhere in a consumer's home, usually come without a HDMI port, and stream recorded programming to existing smart TVs, streaming sticks and mobile devices. There is no release date for the device yet, with Bloomberg noting that the company may still decide not to release the product at all. With this new DVR you will be able to plug in an antenna to a device that will stream it out to your Fire TV or smartphone.

Details on when Amazon plans to debut the new box haven't been revealed. Several brands, including Toshiba and Westinghouse, already offer television sets with Fire TV technology built in.

Amazon's moves show that the company is targeting a wide range of TV-associated devices including Roku as well as TiVo and Slingbox.
