So you're interested in Android TV, but the $199 Shield seems too spendy? Well, you can grab a Nexus Player for less than $50 on Groupon. The deal is for $49.99, but there's a coupon code that can take a few more bucks off.
This is the same device you'd get from the Google Store for $100. It's not refurbished, used, or anything like that. The player comes with a remote, but you'll have to buy the gamepad separately if you want it. You can use the code VISA5 to take another 5% off the price ($2.50), making it a $47.49 purchase with free shipping. I can't guarantee this code will work forever.
Even though the Nexus Player isn't amazing, this is a good price for an Android TV box. Shipping from Groupon tends to take a little longer, but don't think on it too long. Quantities are limited.
