Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is a new Android TV set-top box available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland

After a Nokia-branded set-top box launched in India, another streaming box bearing the Nokia name has been unveiled. This time, the streamer is coming to Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is an Android TV set-top box that features a robust remote and easy access to Google Assistant. It appears relatively similar to any other Android TV device on the market, providing users access to over 7,000 apps from Google Play, including Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney+.

The hardware features a squared design and, as mentioned, a remote that includes dedicated buttons for YouTube, Netflix, Google Play, and Prime Video. There are also dedicated buttons for home and Google Assistant, so you can easily search for content or ask a question.

The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 supports 4K resolution, Dolby Digital Plus audio, and comes equipped with Amlogic’s S905X3 chipset. It also features 2GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard storage. There’s one HDMI port, a single USB-A port, USB-C, and an Ethernet port for plugging the streamer directly into your router. The set-top box also comes with Android 10 and Chromecast built-in, so you can easily cast content from your phone to your TV.

You can purchase the Nokia Streaming Box 8000 now for 100€ in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

If that’s a little out of your price range, perhaps you’ll consider Google’s new Chromecast with Google TV, which we consider to be a gateway to live TV streaming. The little dongle is incredibly easy to use and supports 4K resolution. Best of all, it’s only $49 here in the U.S., making it an affordable option if you need something that’s quick and easy to use for streaming.

The Nokia Streaming Box 8000 is more advanced in a lot of ways, including its support for an Ethernet connection, a dedicated USB port for extra storage, and its more traditional remote, but the price could potentially throw people off.
