Google’s first Android TV product, the Nexus Player, is now available to pre-order from the Play Store.
For $109, a merciful $10 premium over the US version, the Nexus Player attaches to one’s TV or AV receiver and acts as an independent conduit to Google content and Android-based services.
A bunch of app developers have already modified their code for the big screen, including Songza, Netflix, Plex and many others. Users interact with the box with voice or the included remote control, and Android gamers can purchase the optional gamepad ($44.99) to bring compatible titles to the television.
The Nexus Player also acts as a Google Cast conduit, so users can cast content from compatible apps, like Rdio, Netflix and others, to the TV directly.
The set-top box ships in 3-4 weeks from Google’s warehouse.
