Best-Media-Streamers-AA-16

When it comes to Android TV, the digital darling that leads the pack right now is none other than the Nvidia Shield Android TV. With great looks, a nice controller, and plenty of speed under the hood, there’s a lot to love about Nvidia’s media player. At $200 and up, it’s also far from the most affordable. Those who are interested in Android TV but want a lower entry-level option, the Nexus Player is still a fairly solid choice and, best of all, it can be had for as little as $50 from Best Buy.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen the Nexus Player’s price go this low, but if you missed the earlier Groupon deal, now is your second chance to pick one up. Best of all, free shipping is included with the deal. For those that need the refresher, the Nexus Player is powered by a quad-core Intel Atom processor with 1GB RAM and 8G storage. If you are looking to get your game on, there is also an optional gamepad that can be had for around $39. Of course, the limited amount of space does make it a bit harder to take full advantage of the Nexus Player when it comes to bigger games.
