I have written in the past about my experience using the various Android based Media Streaming devices like Firestick, Google Chromecast & NVIDIA Shield Player: the best player out there; and about a new SONY 43 inches Android TV I had bought.
Disclosure: I write reviews about products that I have bought for my usage and paid in full. There were no sponsorship or advertisement or commission of any sort involved in this post.
My son has a six-year-old Toshiba 46 Inches TV, he has an XBOX One connected to it, but he is missing streaming apps like Disney+ Hotstar on the platform, so he wanted me to get him an Android TV player. After looking around, I went with the new Nokia Media Streamer for Rs.2649 from Flipkart.
The Nokia Media Streamer is a small gadget that connects to your TV through HDMI port, connects to your network (Internet) through Wi-Fi and uses a micro-USB charger. The player runs Android 9.0 and has 1.2 GHz Quad-Core Processor, 1 GB RAM and 8 GB storage. Since it is Android TV, most of the popular apps are available.
The player has a standard Android TV remote which in India has dedicated buttons for Netflix and Zee5 streaming services. The remote uses infrared and not radio signal like in NVIDIA Shield, this means you have to stuck an infrared receiver (in the picture above, you can see a small dot stuck next to the TOSHIBA name) to your TV bezerl or somewhere near.
We have been using it for a day and it seems to be a good buy for the price.
