Chromecast with Google TV: a unique and evocative name for this multimedia streaming box! It comes with a remote control and is based on a revamped version of Android TV that emphasizes content recommendation.
Chromecast with Google TV is a nice little 4K media box. It is perfect for streaming videos from SVOD packages. The content aggregation system is compelling and avoids juggling between different services to find ideas for movies or series. Google’s new interface convinces, even if it is not yet perfect. Above all, the box offers a rather pleasant experience with fairly fluid navigation. With its contained price, Google’s little stone hits the eye, although it offers a less complete overall service than an Nvidia Shield TV.

NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing today’s lowest price to the average of the lowest prices charged by all retailers for the product last month, with safeguards to exclude prices from stores whose VAT policy is not clear (known as ” gray” stores, typically in the case of imports from China).
The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K box is a very good streaming solution. Its interface is both rich and simple to use. By bringing together the content of the various streaming services (SVoD) to which the user subscribes in one place, this model also offers support for the latest multimedia technologies: 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos. And if the remote control is not very original, it has the advantage of being complete.
