Googles official partner for their Android TV OS box (follow up to the nexus player) Brilliant box Imagine a Nvidia Shield box without out all the parts many users did not need....lightning quick.... Comes with a UK plug
This is not one of those android boxes that you need a air mouse... this is Android TV....specifically built for TV's
I paid £80 for this pre xmas, so more fool me
So what actually is the difference I hear you shout, between an Android box and a Android TV box?
This should help, shamelessly copied from reddit
Many people are confused and its unfortunate that these android "tv" boxes existed before Google decided to rebrand "Google TV" to "Android TV"
Here is Android TV
Biggest difference to me is the UI. Leanback UI is sexy and appropriate for the big screen. App shortcuts are nice big tiles with proper sized font. UI navigation is conducive to using a simple d-pad remote.
In addition to a beautiful 10ft interface, there is global search, which allows you to search apps for content right from the main screen (provided individual apps develop this integration). This global search can be done via voice and is my preferred method of use. Additionally, there is a global recommendations bar on the home screen that shows content from apps that have integrated it. You can select the content from here and jump right into the action.
Theres also a great, highly underutilized app called "Live Channels." The name is a bit of a misnomer. Its not necessarily live tv, but the UI is similar to what you would find in a regular cable experience. With this app, content is aggregated from participating apps to create "channels" and present them in a traditional tv guide UI. Again, the focus here is ease of access to your content.
And the final big feature I will touch on is built-in google cast functionality. Basically, every official Android TV device (none of boxes you see on Amazon) can be used just like you would use a Chromecast device. This is great for apps/developers that have not gotten around to updating their apps to support the Leanback UI in Android TV.
Really, it comes down to it that its just a better, smoother more optimized experience for typical use with a TV.
