Looking for a great Android TV box? Want one that’s packed with features, supports 4K, and let’s you do pretty much exactly what you want with minimal fuss?

Good. You’re in the right place.

During the past 18-24 months, I have had the pleasure of testing out way too many Android TV boxes and media streamers. Android TV boxes of all shapes and sizes. And during this time I have managed to put together a list of the best Android TV boxes in the business.

Android TV boxes are great for people that want a lot of choices for TV and Movies but don’t want to be tied down with something like Sky Q, which costs quite a lot per month.

With an Android TV box, you have access to a myriad of applications and content from all kinds of sources. Google Play is jam-packed with tons of TV shows and movies which you can buy and rent.

Conversely, apps like Netflix, Hulu and other VOD services are readily available on the platform. Get yourself a VPN and you can access US content in the UK and UK content in the US.

American Netflix is now pretty tricky to access in the UK, following Netflix’s war on VPNs. This unpopular move was met with plenty of anger from UK subscribers but doesn’t appear to have hurt the company’s bottom line in any real meaningful way.

Amazon has raised its game dramatically in the past 18 months, however, championing new content and inking plenty of new licensing deals. If you have both you will have plenty of choice, though I do find myself using Amazon more these days.

Android TV boxes are also CHEAP.

This means if you’re operating on a budget, you can get yourself up and running for very little money.

This list isn't just a list of ALL the Android TV boxes you can buy right now; rather, it is merely a selection of the absolute best – either for features, price or value for money or, in some cases, all three.
