    Android boxes with 4k apps

    Hey peeps

    Thinking of getting an Amazon Fire TV box for 4k Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

    However, just wondering if there are any Android boxes in existence which have 4K Netflix/Amazon available?

    Secondly, is it any better than the Amazon Fire option?

    Doubtful due to lack of CDM for DRM on the majority of Android boxes but thought I'd ask anyway...

    Looks like Netflix will only stream at 1750kbps with resolution at 720x480 resolution on the Beelink X2

    i have the original FTV (obviously not 4k) had it 2 years. *love it* i have messed around with multiple android boxes during that time, promising this & that, but the FTV has outlived them all. sure its locked down but Kodi is sideloadable. Netflix & Prime & catch up all work great on it. so reliable. I know what I'd choose anyday..!

    Kind of the answer I was hoping for anyway. We have 2 fire sticks but think it is slow at times so just need a bit extra raw performance out of it!

    At the current rate I'd have to have my own testicles for dinner if I got one of those after picking up a Pixel C earlier! Does look pretty sweet though. I'll track the Amazon price and see if it'll fall any lower any time soon, currently about £50 above its lowest prices. Cheers

    Xiaomi box (US edition) also has Netflix etc in 4k, one of the only ones that does, it's about £70-80 to import. There's a Chinese model that looks almost the same though so be careful which you get.

    Fair enough mate I nabbed one for £150 virtually brand new. They are a tasty piece of kit.
