This TV-Box is from the Chinese brand Skyworth one of the manufacturers certified by Netflix in its Hailstorm program and this time it is distributed under the brand Mecool. This new device has Android TV 10 certified by Google, integrated Chromecast and a bluetooth remote control with microphone included for Google Assitant and Google TV type design. The remote control also includes shortcut keys to applications such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and Youtube, and we can also install Disney+ and HBO among other apps. A Box that can be interesting, although much will depend on its final price that for now we do not know.
