The GTMEDIA brand does not stop to launch new boxes to the market and today we have another new one called GTMEDIA G3 alpha and that according to the advertising, it includes Google Widevine Level 1 with theoretical support for Netflix HD. An aspect that costs us to believe although it would be possible to make a hack, although usually these patches end up falling and leave us in the lurch. A Box that, as usual in this brand, is intended to be used with IPTV apps such as Stream IPTV or Stalker IPTV.
This TV-Box at the hardware level can be used as a basic media player with KODI and can also run simple games without too much pretension. If you are interested in watching Streaming you can see our list of TV-Box with support for HD quality and 4K where you have better options than this box like the Xiaomi Mi Box S certified by Google and Netflix.
