[DEAL] Nexus Player on Sale for $50 on Adorama

The Nexus Player may not be the Android TV set-top box (STB) with the highest specs, but it is still a fine device for general browsing and casting. If you’re looking for a cheap streaming device, you can go pretty far with Chromecast. However, if you’re looking for something with more autonomy, the Nexus Player fits into the middle ground between a streaming only device and Android game console fairly well.

Adorama, which is more than just an online camera store, is selling the Nexus Player with an instant $40 rebate. You can pick one up for $50, which is only a little more expensive than a Chromecast.

In the box you get the Asus Nexus Player and the voice-enabled remote control, which should work with any Android TV device. If you buy a gamepad either for the Nexus Player or a general gamepad, you’ll also be able to pair that to your Nexus Player to play more games.

The Nexus Player recently received an OTA update to Android 6.0 Marshmallow and will probably continue to receive OS updates soon after they’re public. If you want access to the newest Android features, in addition to a cheap, capable streaming device, this might be the best time to buy the Nexus Player.
