A pretty good deal I would say if you're looking for a small 2015 4K TV with apps.

They have Freeview plus built in now, so streaming TVNZ on demand via that works fine.  The TVNZ on demand app has issues with my geolocation service so I don't use it.

Just don't buy it for the smart features, and expect them to be still operational in the next few years. Price it as if it was a dumb tv, and then compare the price with competing tvs. 4k TV's will eventually be the norm, so will only get cheaper. They are great if you have a 4k video camera, as the detail is incredible.

It runs Stock Android TV, so I would hope that most of the base features like Netflix, Youtube etc will still be running fine in 3 years.  Maybe not 5.

I actually purchased mine because it was Android TV and that I could run many of the things I do on a PC, on the device itself and cut down power usage.  Sky Go for example.

Damn, if it wasn't so small, that would be tempting.

I need 55 inch + and at the moment they are just a bit out of the price range in Android TV
