Google plans to launch Nexus Player in Asia

Back in October 2014, Google stunned everyone when they announced the launch of Nexus Payer and Android TV. Android TV got a quick boost when a lot of leading TV makers like SONY and SHARP decided to use Android TV for all their SmartTV lineup. On the other hand, Nexus Player, the Amazon Fire TV rip-off don’t landed very well. The reason might have been the pre-setted market of Fire TV or the lack of Support of basic music and video streaming services and the $99(~₹6000) price tag. This resulted in Nexus Player being exclusive to United States and Canada and we never saw it in international market.


Google announced recently that it will soon sell the Nexus Player in Japan, the first market it will sell the device outside of the United States and Canada. The device will retail for JPY12,800 (~₹6700) when it hits store shelves at the end of February, Google said. The Nexus Player will ship with support for Video Market, Ryori Sapuri, Hulu Japan and Hot Pepper Beauty, Google explained. Customers will also be able to download games such as _Final Fantasy III _and Soul Caliber, though those titles are also available to consumers in the United States.
