Report: Google is working on an Android set-top box called the Nexus TV

Posted Dec 8, 2013

Yes, Google already sells the Chromecast for only $35, but there are now rumors floating around that Google will be building a set-top box that will be based on Android in 2014. The set-top box is expected to support Android gaming features to distinguish the product from other set-top boxes while offering the standard streaming services like Hulu Plus, Netflix, and Amazon Instant Video. The product has the code-name Nexus TV and it could be revealed at CES 2014. The rumor also suggests that Google will be integrating a camera into the device to offer access to services like Google Hangouts.
