André the Giant is a big guy, but you probably wouldn't want him hanging up on your living room wall. That's where this deal from Hisense comes in: Best Buy is currently offering a 4K Android TV with screen real estate measuring a full 85". That's about as big as André the Giant was tall, and the set is just $999.99 — a full $700 off the MSRP.
Big TVs are great and all, but we've got to draw a line somewhere, right? Currently, Best Buy has a 4K Sony Android TV on sale for $1,999.99. That's a full $600 off the MSRP. But it's freaking 85" of display — I mean, where are you even going to put it?
Google TV may be the hot new thing, but Nvidia's Shield TV is still one of the most popular Android TV devices out there. We called it the best Android TV box at the time of release, and it's getting even better thanks to a new update rolling out now.
Google may have introduced Google TV earlier this year, but Apple TV has been around long before that. Problem is, there hasn't been any Apple TV Android app, and that includes for Android TV devices — at least, until now. Select Sony ATV models are receiving an update that installs the Apple TV app, which includes access to Apple TV+, Apple TV channels, new and popular movies, and personalized and curated recommendations. A month after its announcement, the app has now arrived in the Play Store.
A Nokia-branded Android TV set-top box is coming to Europe. Called the Streaming Box 8000, the new device won't actually have anything to do with Nokia or HMD Global, who makes the Nokia-branded Android phones we're all used to now. It costs 100€, but what sets it apart from the masses of cheaper dongles is its faster chipset and a ton of ports.
Big TVs are better, but they're also usually a lot more expensive. Luckily, Best Buy is offering some super savings on a 70" set from Hisense right now. 4K Ultra HD resolution, Dolby Vision, and Android TV baked right in make this television a steal at just $399.99 — a full $250 off the usual MSRP.
TCL TVs are among the better options if you're looking to buy a set on a budget even when you want all the bells and whistles like 4K, HDR, and some capable smart TV functionality. That's true for TCL's 4-Series with Android TV. Target currently offers the 65-inch model for only $230, which is $170 off the regular $400 price tag. You can even pick it up in-store if you prefer not to have it shipped.
Google is rolling out a set of new data-friendly features on Android TV to help users monitor and reduce their TV's bandwidth usage when connected to a hotspot instead of Wi-Fi. The features are coming to Xiaomi, TCL, and MarQ TVs in India in the next few weeks, but should be available globally afterward.
