Hisense preparing sub-$100 Google TV box, promises to show it at IFA

The success of the Vizio Co-Star has proved that Google TV still has life in it, especially when the price is right. Jumping on the sub-$100 bandwagon now is Hisense, a Chinese OEM that has partnered with Google to produce a new budget Google TV set-top box. 

In a statement, Mickey Kim, Google TV parner manager said of the collaboration: 

Hisense adds even more innovation to the growing list of Google TV-powered devices available around the world. We're working closely with partners like Hisense to bring services from Google and multiple other providers to your TV with an experience tailored for the living room.

Better yet, the box is ready to be shown off to the world and is promised to be on display during next weeks IFA show in Berlin. Hopefully that means that unlike the Vizio offering, the Hisense box will ship in Europe. Android Central will be on the ground from the show all week, so keep it locked to the site and our IFA portal for all the best.

  • What streaming services can you get on Google TV in the UK?
  • Any that use Internet and will make app for Google TV ;p
  • Good news, they really need more OEMs, no OEMs = less users = less profit = less devlopers interested
  • Depends on HOW sub-$100, whether or not I'd skip over the Co Star for this. (Already own a Revue and am looking to add a 2nd GTV into the house)
