The Nexus Player may have finally received FCC certification in the US and finally gone back up for pre-order in the US, but out here in the rest of the world, availability information remains scarce.
Rumours are now starting to circulate that Google may be holding the Nexus Player back from international release and will roll it out on a schedule that mirrors the Chromecast launch.
According to Dutch site, Techtastic, Google won’t be rolling the Nexus Player out to Europe until the end of Q1 2015. Essentially around the same time that the Chromecast launched in the UK this year. The reason for this is that Google would like to ensure that there is enough content deals in place, as well as app availability at launch and this is not currently in place.
According to their source, the Nexus Player will retail for €99 and will be available through both Google Play and electronics retailers. The rollout in Europe will be include England, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway and the Netherlands.
We’re still waiting to hear anything on Australian availability of the Nexus Player. If you’ve got any sources we’d love to hear from you.
