Google announced the Nexus Player, the first of the company’s Android TV-devices, on its blog last week. It first appeared in the Google Play Store last week before Google quickly pulled it, noting that the product had not yet been approved by the Federal Communication’s Commission (FCC). The FCC gave the streaming set-top box its nod of approval recently, however, and now the Nexus Player is back and available for purchase.
Google is selling the set-top box for $99 and the site currently says the Nexus Player will ship in 3-4 weeks. As a quick refresher, the Nexus Player is equipped with an Intel Atom processor clocked at 1.8GHz, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, a microUSB 2.0 port, HDMI-out and support for Bluetooth 4.1 and 802.11 ac wireless. The box includes Google’s Nexus Player remote, which accepts voice commands. You might also want to consider the Gamepad for Nexus Player. It’s a gaming controller that will set you back $39.99, but the device is currently listed as out of stock from the Google Play Store.
