Android TV is gaining momentum and if you haven’t jumped on board yet, then here’s your chance with a deal on the Android TV running Xiaomi Mi Box.
GearBest is running the sale, with the Mi Box discounted from the usual price of $91.05AUD to $74.22 with the use of the code ‘FTMiBox‘.
The Mi Box is an official Android TV device, announced at Google I/O last year. Our newest writer, Neerav, has imported one previously (for a little more than this deal) and has written his thoughts about it here. Overall, it seems like a good device, with support for most Android TV apps..
Android TV includes a Chromecast receiver to allow you to cast from any Chromecast enabled app, and the Mi Box also has the distinction of being able to support 4K streams. Want the full specs? Here you go:
