Walmart Set to Take Google TV Gadget Pricing Even Lower With … – Next TV

Place your AD here

Walmart already plunged Google TV into the $20 range back in February with a widely acclaimed 4K player puck
In February, Walmart launched, via its own “Onn.” brand, the cheapest Google TV device yet, a 4K puck that retails for around $20. 
The tech blogs, well equipped to compare and benchmark these gadgets, have raved about it, with The Verge calling player — which is significantly cheaper than Google’s own Chromecast with Google TV — the “best deal in streaming today.” 
Walmart, which has accelerated streaming adoption in recent years with super-cheap Onn.-branded HDMI gadgets, is apparently going even lower. Tech blogger David Zatz and his Zats Not Funny blog uncovered an FCC filing that appears to pertain to an Onn.-brand HD-only Google TV HDMI stick.
The filing includes a diagram (see below) for a product label, which belies the profile of such a stick. 
Zatz suggests the device will probably retail for around $15, replacing the discontinued Onn.-branded HDMI stick powered by Google TV’s predecessor OS, Android TV. The smarter way to stay on top of the streaming and OTT industry. Sign up below.
