Walmart finally lists the new Onn 4K Pro for sale on its website

Even though the Onn 4K Pro has already been available to buy in select stores for a few days now, Walmart has only now gotten around to listing it online. The Onn 4K Pro listing on Walmart.com is now up with a price of $49.88. However, it’s either not quite ready to be purchased yet or has already sold out, as it is currently showing as out of stock. The images in the listing do show a remote with the big “Free TV” button, even though some customers have received units without the button, so it seems like the button is here to stay. You can use the SKU item number 5193222892 to call your local Walmart to see if they have any in stock or you can enter your email address on the product page to be notified when it’s back in stock online.

Google TV’s new ‘Magic’ Star Button can launch any app or change TV input — Available first on the Onn 4K Pro remote

Rumors and leaks of a “magic” star button for Google TV remotes stretch all the way back to 2020 when leaked marketing material for the, then-unreleased, 2020 Chromecast 4K showed a mysterious star button on the remote. The 2020 Chromecast remote eventually launched without the star button, but leaks of alleged Google TV star buttons persisted throughout the years with, most recently, the Android TV 14 beta release containing diagrams of an unreleased Chromecast remote containing the star button, yet again. This week, Walmart released its brand new Onn 4K Pro streaming box and, in addition to a giant “Free TV” button, the included remote is the first to ship with the elusive star button, so, here’s what it can do and how it works.

Walmart’s Onn 4K Pro remote has a giant stupid “Free TV” button on it

The brand new Onn 4K Pro Google TV streaming box from Walmart released this week has been looking like a killer device.

Unfortunately, my excitement took a nosedive the second I took its remote out of the box because there was a giant stupid blue “Free TV” button smack-dab in the middle of the remote. Read more ›
