If Android TV hasn’t floated your boat, but an Android Media Player is still something you’d like to try then you may want to head in to discount supermarket Aldi this Saturday and grab one of their 4K enabled Media players this weekend for just $79.99.
The Cocoon branded box comes with Kodi (formerly XBMC) and Netflix pre-installed taking care of almost all of your content needs, with Netflix able to stream 4K content if your internet connection allows. The box runs Android KitKat, specifically Android 4.4.2 but there’s no listing as to whether it comes with Google Play installed.
The box isn’t too shabby when it comes to the hardware end of the scale either advertising support for 4K video playback. To aid that the box contains a Quad-Core Processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of on-board Stroage with MicroSD up to 32GB (card not included). Connectivity wise you get support for Wi-Fi as well as a hardwired ethernet connection. The box also has 2x USB ports to plug in a hard drive if you want.
Accessory wise you’ll find a remote control and a HDMI cable.
If you’re in the market for an Android Media Player, head into your local Aldi store this Saturday the 10th of October and grab one while stocks last.
