Walmart’s Onn Android TV streaming box is a rebranded Dynalink / Google ADT-3 reference design

It turns out that Walmart’s Android TV Onn UHD Streaming Device is just a rebranded Dynalink Android TV Box, which is itself actually just Google’s ADT-3 developer reference design that is manufactured by Askey. I didn’t know it when I was reviewing Walmart’s box, but several helpful commenters lead to that realization. Running AIDA64, which lists hardware details, on the Onn streamer does show that it is manufactured by Askey. It also lists the model number as “sti6140d360” which differs from the Dynalink box’s model number by just one digit. Read more ›

The most impressive thing about it is its price, which is $29.88, making it the least expensive 4K streaming box from a well-known company. Even more impressive, considering the price, is that it comes with the Google-designed “G10” remote that has voice capabilities and TV controls. Check out my unboxing video above, where I compare the remote to numerous other popular remotes from Amazon Fire TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, and more.

Fire TV devices are finally getting an official Vudu app

An official Vudu app is finally coming to the Amazon Fire TV appstore, according to Chris Welch from The Verge. Vudu, one of the largest digital video marketplaces with over 150,000 movies and TV shows, has never been officially available on Fire TV devices because it was owned by Walmart, one of Amazon’s largest retail rivals. Walmart sold Vudu to Fandango last year, which removed that barrier for a Fire TV app. Much of Vudu’s library has since been available on Fire TV devices through the FandangoNOW app for Fire TV, but now the entire library will soon be available. The Vudu app for Fire TV is expected to be available in the coming days.
