Great price for a great box.
Especially if coupled with the £10 off your first prime now order with a new account ;-)
Does anyone happen to know if they've released the fix allowing you to connect xbox controllers yet? Tempted to get one for moonlight...
is this better than roku ?

Others might disagree, but I think it is. I'm very pleased with mine.
very pleased with mine, though needed to tweak the advancedsettings.xml to fix kodi buffering local content
most 4k content is pay to view.. this box isnt worth it until more free 4k stuff is available.. cold from me

Your own reason not to buy it is not a reason to vote cold surely???
Is this the cheapest price you can get this currently? Yes
Is this usually more expensive? Yes
Is this ready for more free 4k content when it is available? Yes

Ah it doesn't fit the shelf under my tv - voting cold!

It is not 4K exclusive. It has been updated to support 4K streaming therefore your reasoning is invalid.

Paid full price from Argos on Sunday. Darn!

Heat added.

Exactly. Great box, even without using the 4k. I have several "boxes" and this is my favourite. Install Kodi with Paradox, Plex, Aptoide and FireStarter and it's a well specced Android box without the need for root.
A must if you have Amazon Prime too (now available monthly).

So I’d had a really bad day leaving me getting home late and before I went to bed I checked Amazon on my phone for the progress of another order. That’s when I spotted that they had dropped the price of these and I’d been thinking of getting one for a while so I snapped one up. Then, despite the fact it was gone midnight & I really needed to go to sleep, I thought ‘I wonder if the HotUKDeals gang know about this?’.
So I checked and unfortunately no one had posted it so I thought I’d better do it. It’s all about the sharing and helping each other out, after all. I was on my phone though so posting a deal is a bit tricky and I was tired so I thought I’ll just put the basic details in for now and then add more of a description during my lunch break tomorrow. At least then other users can get the heads-up and the link to Amazon will probably tell you all you need to know anyway.

So I was especially pleased to see your comment this morning Brilly. If you’re up and about at 4 o’clock in the morning making snidey comments about other people’s efforts, perhaps you can spare the time to redeam yourself and write a description for me and then I’ll copy and paste it at the top. It would save me a job because I’ve got to start working again now.
I’m sure we’re all looking forward to being enlightened by your wisdom.

If you don't know what an Amazon TV Box is then it isn't difficult to click the link is it?

Why didn't you find and post the deal, too lazy to look for it were you?
anyone got fire stick and this with kodi installed?

Just wondering whether I would see any advantage with kodi on this over the stick?
Great price, looking to grab one for kodi only reason to cold vote is if it's cheaper somewhere else, and it isn't..
Is there a reliable way to use airplay from apple devices with fire tv kit - I've got the stick but playback is very jerky using a few of the available apps that claim to offer airplay.
It'll run faster than a stick, menus etc, and also handles live tv streams better. I got a stick recently to test it out and will grab a fire tv for my main tv

Yeah, let's compare it to yet another nasty Chinese ATV design rip off that doesn't support official 4k streaming services or most of the UK TV catchup services.that have zero or very little support or updates...

Chalk and cheese between the 2 devices, far better performance and much better WiFi reception with the box over the stick.

Dumped my stick for the Box, just a much better experience full stop. Nvidia Shield is better still again but nowhere near this price point.

Yes I have both and the box runs faster than the stick with Kodi and other sideloaded apps but in fairness the stick runs Kodi pretty good as well.
The box also has the advantage of playing my movies of a micro SD card.
Very good deal, I got mine at this price last time from Tesco. HOT HOT HOT

I have Kodi on both. This one can play my 4K stuff and downconvert to 1080p. The stick can't.

Got mine from Argos and a £5 voucher that I used the next week to get a 64K microSD for a superb price!

Small movies, as the card needs to be FAT32 formatted, so under 4G
Does anyone know if hdmi-cec works well with a Samsung F8000 and kodi installed on this please?

Could be waiting a very, very long time....the infrastructure is not even there for streaming content in 4K. Most homes do not have the bandwidth for such reliable connectivity with such, hence why even Amazon Prime, BT Ultra HD and Netflix 4K options are only slightly better than standard Blu Ray at best in picture quality and still crippled like their 1080p streaming counterparts in audio (DD+ 5.1 compressed audio at best). Let alone anything on the horizon as far as terrestrial broadcasts go.

The only way anyone that plumps for a 4K TV is going to get any reference material is to plump for a £400+ UHD Blu Ray Player and its selection of discs, its simply not going to be happening in a PPV environment.

In the meantime I am happy to let the format 'mature' along with prices on decent sets that are not based on old tech, in OLED or see what transpires with quantum dot technology in an attempt to improve existing cheap LCD currently marred by its backlit or edgelit LED lighting.
It looks like Argos have price matched

These are must better than the firestick for kodi, the micro sd card slot is ideal for moving the kodi files to. With the option of a hard wired internet makes it my preference over the stick any day

I thought it was pretty clear. It's simple and effectiv.

if you don't know what it is then ask for clarification or just go and find out yourself rather than accusing someone of being lazy, try to be helpful or does it go against your nature?
I have both. Biggest thing is box has Ethernet and 5GHz.

Do any of those support streaming from a NAS do you know? I've been looking for a solution to replace my WDTV boxes (as they do not support 4K) and I'm failing dismally. Nothing cuts it.
