Google’s 1st generation Android TV box is currently on sale at Best Buy for $49.99. This may be a sign that we are getting a refresh of the Nexus Player at Google’s September 29 event, or perhaps Google plans to merge the Nexus Player and the 2nd gen Chromecast? If you want to order online you can pick up free shipping as well.
At $49.99, the HDMI set-top box is a good first Android TV device. It is certainly not as powerful as the NVIDIA Shield, but will suffice for Netflix, Pandora, Youtube, and light gaming. I would guess that we will hear more about Android TV at next week’s event, and I think a Nexus Player and Chromecast is merger is more likely than not.
