With more and more streaming services coming out these days, it’s giving users less and less reasons to pay the big cable companies and satellite companies each month for a set of channels that the majority of them don’t use. There are services like Hulu, Netflix, NBA GameTime, NHL Game Center, HBO Now, and don’t forget Chromecast which brings you even more services including YouTube and Google Play Movies & TV. So why not trade in that cable box for a fresh set-top box that is running on Android. No, this is not your typical Android TV box. Essentially it’s a box that runs on Android – confusing right? It plugs into your TV via HDMI, and it streams in “ultra high definition”. You’ll be able to stream movies, TV Shows, music and much more from this box onto your TV without any trouble at all.
This Android TV box does have a pretty easy to use and intuitive UI for those looking to pick one up. It’s powered by a quad-core processor, to make sure that things are nice and speedy. The number of apps that you can use with this Android TV box are essentially endless. You can even stream your own content from services like Plex. Right now this set top box is going for $119, down from its regular price of $199. But you’d better act fast.
