How to Stream iTunes Movies/TV Shows to Nexus Player
Google Nexus Player - Ready to Rule Your Living Room
Google has announced the Nexus Player. It's the first device to run Android TV, the company's latest software platform designed to power set-top boxes, TVs, and even "microconsoles".
Everyone wants to put a computer in your living room right now, and it’s not hard to figure out why: people spend more time in their living room than any other room in the house. It’s where we watch TV, where we entertain guests, and typically it’s where the biggest screen in the house is. Google’s attempts to put a device in your living room have failed, until finally the company struck gold with the Chromecast.
In many ways the Nexus Player is an extension of Chromecast -- there is even casting support. Google has teamed up with Asus to bring us a device that not only streams media, but also streams games from phones and tablets. And this aims to be more than a console for casual gamers; there's even a gamepad that's very reminiscent of the Xbox One controller.
The Nexus Player, like the Nexus 9, is available to pre-order from 17 October and will ship 3 November. Google has confirmed that the Nexus Player with remote will cost $99.99, and will come with $20 of Google Play credit. The optional controller will cost $39.99.
