Nexus Player TV

Shortly after first setting the Nexus Player live for pre-orders on Google Play’s website, the Android TV device’s status read “out of inventory”. As it turned out, Google wasn’t really out of stock so soon, instead it had yet to receive full approval from the FCC for the sale of the device. Without the approval, Google couldn’t legally sell the unit and so it took it down from presale. Thankfully, the Nexus Player has now successfully passed through the FCC over the weekend and is back up for pre-order, with a shipping target of 3 to 4 weeks.

As before, the device is $99 but you’ll also need a $40 game controller if you want to take full advantage of the gaming aspects of the hardware. Unfortunately, the controller is currently listed as “Out of Inventory” on Google play with no word as to when they’ll get more controllers in stock.

For those that haven’t decided whether or not the Nexus Player is right for them, they’ll want to check out our original announcement post for more details. So how about it, did you order to the Nexus Player or not?
