Google expands Nexus Player's US availability

27 Jan 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

The first Android TV player was released late last year, but was only available through Google’s online store. Google is now expanding availability to Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, NewEgg and other retailers.

Android TV is going mainstream

Nexus Player is the first Android TV box to become available on the market. We have already posted a full review, and in the coming months we will see a flurry of TVs with built-in Android TV coming to market from Sony, Sharp and Philips.

But you do not have to buy a new TV to enjoy the Android TV experience. The Nexus Player can connect to any TV with a HDMI port. It offers apps such as Netflix and YouTube as well as games. There is still no word on the European launch date, but Google is expanding availability to most of the big US-based retailers.

The list of retailers includes Amazon, Best Buy, NewEgg, Walmart, TigerDirect, Staples, and Fri’s Electronics. It is still not available everywhere, but should be soon for $99.
