Walmart released its Android-based Onn Streaming Stick and Onn 4K Streaming Box about a year and a half ago. The devices are relatively popular, thanks to their very low everyday prices. However, it seems as though Walmart might be discontinuing both devices, as spotted by 9To5Google, because both models are no longer available for purchase online or at most stores.
These streaming devices debuted around May of last year for $14.88 for the 1080p stick and $24.88 for the 4K box. That was a rock-bottom price for any streaming device, especially one with a voice-capable remote. Since then, those prices have dropped even further to $9.88 and $19.88, that is, if you can find any of them. While some people are reporting that the streamers can still be purchased in their area, most locations, both physical and online, no longer have either model available.
It’s unknown if Walmart is just having supply issues and the devices will someday return, but being unavailable in nearly all locations isn’t a good sign for Walmart’s commitment to these devices. Given how late in the year it is and how close it is to the holidays already, it seems unlikely that Walmart is getting ready to launch updated versions of its streaming devices, but that’s a possible explanation for their absence as well.
