    Boxes like this should not be referred to as an “Android TV” box since they don’t actually run Google’s Android TV operating system, which has a specific UI designed for TVs and remote controls as well as access to the Google Play app store where apps designed for Android TV can be downloaded. Smart TVs and boxes (such as Nvidia Shield TV and Mi Box) that run Android TV also have certain security licenses loaded so that they can display major pay services like Netflix, Hulu, etc. in HD.

    I get that the box above is a mini-computer intended to be connected to a TV but it’s actually running its own version of open-source Android and doesn’t have the benefits listed above of a true Android TV device. However, if all you want is something to run KODI and other open-source apps, it’s probably fine for that.

    Note that the HDMI port included with this device is HDMI 2.0, not 2.0a. Content with HDR will not display enhanced visuals.

      Their spec sheet disagrees with you. What are you basing your assumption on?

    Please don’t refer these boxes as Android TV because they don’t run ‘Android TV OS’

    $150 seems a bit steep

      What do you recommend? Thoughts on NVIDIA Shield?
