For years I've been using a Playstation 3 (with remote) to access Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Prime, TVNZ on Demand etc. - it's served me well but I saw a friend's Android TV set top box & it got me thinking about whether it's time to move on.
I like the idea of being able to install any(?) Android app so we can use apps like Google Photos on the TV. I've also noticed that support is dropping for PS3 apps & some services (I tried a Curiousity Stream subscription) don't support Playstation at all.
My friend has a "H96 Pro Amlogic Octa-core S912 Android TV Box 2/16 & Keyboard" - which can be bought from TradeMe for $119+
But before I took the plunge I thought I should have a look online to see if there's better options out there, which took me through the looking glass of listicles & review charts for Americans, by Americans.
My main concern is that it's easy to use for the rest of the family - who tend to get frustrated when I come up with overly technical "solutions".
With all of this in mind do any of you have any recommendations/ warnings about Android TV set top boxes?
