Android TV was one of the big highlights of Google I/O 2014, and while we didn’t see much from it during this year’s developer’s conference, we’re sure the platform is to get all of the new features that are heading to Android M. When Android TV launched, there were only a handful of services supporting it, but since then it’s gotten many more apps and services join the fold, including HBO Go coming soon. The Nexus Player was the first player to hit the market, and still remains one of the best options out there, especially if you want something that you can tinker with or get a pure experience from.
Right now, the Nexus Player is on sale at Amazon, for $67.88 (at the time of writing) with free shipping included. That’s a pretty good deal, and makes it cheaper than all other Android TV boxes available right now, as well as rivals like the Roku 3 and company. We reviewed the Nexus Player last year, and found it to be a pretty great set top box, and the platform can only get better. If you’re looking for a streaming box on the cheap, this is a good option, and remember the Nexus Player also works as a Chromecast, too.
