We spent 21 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top options for this wiki. Android is by far the most popular operating system on Earth, partially because it's based on open-source code. This flexibility means there's no shortage of cord-cutting devices based on it. We've scoured the most powerful TV boxes to find those most suited to 4K Ultra-HD streaming. You'll find some from third-party developers and others licensed by Google itself. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best 4k android tv box on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 09, 2018: The field of Android TV boxes is quite the swamp to wade through right now. If you're dead-set on taking advantage of 4K content from official streaming services, you'll need to select an official Android TV unit that's Netflix-compatible, rather than a third-party unit running on the Android Open Source project. If you're looking to access user-driven streams like Kodi and Acestream, you'll have a MUCH easier time with a third-party box — but be careful to comply with all relevant copyright laws. Pay attention to RAM size and processor speed, as 4K video is pretty data-heavy. Also, Intel-powered Chromeboxes have entered the game, finally, as Intel just recently adapted HDCP 2.2 to x86-based Chrome OS machines in September of 2018.
