Walmart Streaming Devices

Walmart is releasing their own streaming devices.

https://techcrunch.com/2021/06/02/wa...and-4k-player/

The 1080p stick version is $25 and the 4K UHD device is $30. They're powered by Android TV. It has Chromecast built-in, and uses Google Assistant for voice commands.

I like the dedicated buttons on the remote. Those are popular services people use, unlike Roku which always has weird stuff like Sling and Rdio.



Here's the store listings. They're currently out of stock.

I'm pretty sure companies pay Roku to get the dedicated buttons on the remote, so I assume the same thing here. Still crappy that they can't be reprogrammed at all.

Looks like a cheap way to get an up to date Chromecast. Wish someone would make something with both Airplay and Chromecast included, then Iíd be set.
