Now, Verizon introduced its own rumored Android TV-powered set-top box. The Verizon Stream TV is available to purchase from the site of the company. Aside from the signature red checkmark at the top, the item is unbranded, also we have not confirmed the maker, however (yet one source informs us it is quite much like Xiaomi’s Mi Box).
The Stream TV runs a version of Google’s Android TV system, so users will have access to the extensive catalog of games and programs. We’ve yet to see this up and running, but Verizon has almost definitely produced some customizations utilizing Android TV’s operator grade functionality. Based on CNET, the Stream TV will soon be available for free within their organization’s 5G home online rollout–combined with a free month of YouTube TV.
In terms of the box, the Stream TV is an unassuming black square using a very simple power indicator on the front and two vents (one 4k HDMI, 1 ethernet) from the trunk. Google Assistant is built-in, using a button. We do not know about the hardware now.
Verizon’s Stream TV is available with an MSRP of $70, beginning for sale, but you might choose to hold off till we understand more about this device.
