Not a leak but a listing, perhaps by mistake, revealing the new Android TV device by Xiaomi has come up from Gearbest. The brand-new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick running on Android TV OS. The device has been already confirmed that will start selling on May 2020 so we are either way really close.
Xiaomi Mi TV Stick Price
It’s very curious that while the listing doesn’t feature a price for the Android TV Stick, the $79.99 price does show up at the retailer’s search page. The cost of the device looks like a flash sale but it can also prove to be a price for those who just get the Mi TV Stick for first.
Specifications of the Mi TV Stick
Diving into the specs, the Xiaomi Mi TV Stick will be running just with a little better specs as the previously released Xiaomi Mi Box S. but in a smaller size. The Mi TV stick comes with the Amlogic S905Y2 quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. The GPU is a Mali-G31. But we should wait for official confirmation since the listing displays the device as “Mi Box S,” which means this could be just a copy and paste from the previous listings until GearBest has updated information. That mention could also be a typo, and these specs may be correct. According to the Gearbest listing, the Mi TV Stick also supports 4K HDR, DTS-HD audio, Dolby Stereo Sound, Dual-Band Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth v4.2, and a USB 3.0 Type-C port for charging.
Considerations about the new Mi TV Stick
However, the $79.99 price listed in the search results is higher by almost 25% from the Xiaomi Mi Box S, which retailed for $59.99 at launch. And we are not even sure if that ends up being the final price for the new Xiaomi Mi TV Stick. The listing is showing as a “Flash Sale”. That can also mean that the final price may be $100 after the flash sale ends.
I really wished the new Android TV device from Xiaomi would have better specs. While I am 100% sure that the performance will be absolutely great, it would have been very appreciated if Xiaomi updated the specs to a more 2020 device. Let’s just hope that as with the Nvidia Shield TV 2019, we will see a PRO version by Xiaomi too.
In any case, as the previous Mi Box S has been one of our best Android TV Box devices, we are confident that Xiaomi will not disappoint us with this new model.

The Android TV-powered TiVo Stream 4K was originally expected to launch with a $50 promotional pricing this April. It offers an Android TV experience that’s all about live TV and also uses some changes to Android TV than we’d usually see, including a proper channel surfing experience.
Originally, TiVo announced the Stream 4K to arrive in April 2020, but that date has come and gone. Speaking to TVTechnology recently (via ZatzNotFunny), TiVo confirmed the Stream 4K would be at least slightly delayed, set to arrive “in the next few weeks”.
While it is possible this could be related to coronavirus production issues that also other companies have faced this period, TiVo hasn’t released any further information. In any case, here at Dimitrology.com we’re still pretty excited to test out this new Android TV dongle for ourselves. We’ll keep you updated on when it’s officially released.

Now you can use your Canon DSLR as a webcam with a USB cable connected to your Windows 10 computer! No need for a capture card anymore, like the Elgato Camlink or the Elgato Capture HD60 S. With the simplicity of a utility, the Canon EOS Webcam Utility you can transform your Canon DSLR into a high-quality webcam!
EOS Webcam Utility
The EOS Webcam Utility is still in beta as of right now but it works wonders! The quality is great, just make sure to use a USB 3.0 port without a hub as I did in this video. I only did this because I didn’t have such a long cable at the time.

The Amazon Prime Day 2020 this summer will no longer be holding at the usual time — at least according to one report. The Prime Day event usually takes place in the middle of July.
But which is Prime Day 2020Date? The beloved shopping event will be pushed back until at least August, according to notes from an internal meeting obtained by Reuters. The major shopping event was started in 2015. Even though it generally occurs each July, this year rumours had it happening around the end of June 2020. All that of course, before the pandemic occurred.
The online shopping giant expects a potential $100 million loss from excess devices that it might now sell at a discount. That’s according to internal meeting notes seen, as Reuters reported. The news agency mentioned that “5 million extra devices that Amazon would have sold during Prime Day, such as its suite of voice-controlled Echo speakers”.
“We probably have to promote sooner, which will be difficult if we’re capacity constrained,” Amazon General Counsel David Zapolsky wrote in notes from a daily meeting of Amazon executives.
Amazon does not disclose revenue from Prime Day but it is known that merchants contributed to $2 billion in sales during Prime Day in 2019, which lasts for 48 hours and over 18 countries worldwide. Promotions for Amazon’s members, Prime Membership, have also proven an effective way for the company to draw more people, In fact, during Prime Day a lot of people become members, at $119 per year in the United States.
Dimitrology On Amazon
Just a reminder, also available on Amazon you can find the Dimitrology Shop. There is a selection of the devices I personally tested, use and highly recommend.

The Mecool KM1 TV Box is a Google certified Android TV device that just hit the market. With the latest specs and great performance is on sale right for a very competitive price. It comes in three variations:
4GB RAM and 64GB of storage which sales for $79.99 after using the coupon 4PGLDAIK,
2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage with a super-low price of just $58.99 after using the coupon 4PGM1BCP
Mecool KM1 Specs
What is great about the Mecool KM1 is the fact that unlike the Xiaomi Mi Box S, it is powered by a brand-new and powerful CPU and GPU. In fact the device comes with the Amlogic S905X3 a very powerful CPU that can easily play 4K UHD up to 60 fps. Also powerful the GPU which can not only playback any given video format but allows you to play in an excellent manner any Android game. Another great feature is the optimal WiFi, supports 2GHz and 5Ghz -that’s Dual Band WiFi for faster internet connection! It is also faster than any traditional Dual Band WiFi since it is a 2T2R module with 2 antennas for even faster connections. And then we have the USB 3.0 that allows you to connect any compatible external HD and USB drive so you can elevate your experience with super fast speeds, unlike the old USB 2.0 that now days serves only for connections like a mouse, keyboard, gamepads and remotes. in the specifics, we find 1 x USB 3.0, 1 X USB 2.0, a micro SD card slot, HDMI port, a 10/100M Ethernet port and an AV output. Also included the Bluetooth module version 4.2 so you can attach even more devices.
Mecool KM1 Remote Control
Another excellent point to be added: the included remote control. An already amazing remote, very similar to the Mi Box S and the previous Mecool models, now has 3 dedicated buttons: Youtube, Amazon Prime Video and Google Play are away just a click! And of course the dedicated button for Google Assistance is always there since the remote has also a built-in microphone for voice commands.
As you may suspect if you are more tech savvy, the Mecool KM1 with this SoC is a great piece of a media center. It can play any given video format with the default player or even KODI. And it also supports 4K Ultra HD on Youtube, 4K UHD also on Amazon Prime Video too! Not the same luck with Netflix since as we know, Netflix is not allowing a lot of devices to use their 4K license even though the lower resolutions are also supported and you can use Netflix too. HDR playback is also great, given of course that you have a TV that supports such technology.
Given that this Android 9 Pie Mecool KM1 comes with all the best for the price, in my opinion is a great device to get, especially considering the price after the coupon discount. Be sure to check all three versions even though for the price, I would go for the Mecool KM1 4GB / 64GB which appears also the most future-proof too. The offer is time limited so make sure to grab one now!

If Netflix is your main streaming application and you want a new tv box, then you will find that not a lot of devices are Netflix certified. What does that mean? That essentially Netflix is only allowing certain devices to stream on their best 4K UHD / HD quality. I’ve had that discussion hundred of times, from friends that want the best quality for their streaming experience. Since they got that Netflix 4K Ultra HD subscription they also wanted the best TV Box for Netflix in HD. Unfortunately, not all devices actually support Netflix in 4K UHD / HD. Some devices will only play movies and tv shows from Netflix at SD quality, which is 480p and of course, the disappointment is big! And do not get me wrong, a lot of great devices may do that too as excellent Android smartphones and tablets.
Netflix 4K Ultra HD and HD certified devices list
Below you will find the list with the supported devices for Netflix, thus the Best TV Box / Media Streamer for Netflix on 2020:
Nvidia Shield TV (2019)
The “budget” Nvidia Shield TV (2019), or else called the Nvidia Shield “Tube” because of its design. This is the entry-level by Nvidia into the magical world of Android TV. Google Assistant, Alexa, for no hands control. And GeForce NOW game streaming, 4K HDR video streaming, Dolby Atmos audio in such a compact and unique device. Performance is still great although if you want to game too, I would opt for the bigger brother, the Nvidia Shield TV PRO. Great remote control with voice command, same as the Pro version. Get it from Amazon here.
Xiaomi Mi Box S
The updated version of the Xiaomi Mi Box S is not the most powerful device in the market, yet it will amaze you with great 4K HDR streaming capabilities. As it is an Android TV device, come with Google Cast (Chromecast) built-in in almost at the same price! The limit in connectivity may not be a deal-breaker for users that mostly want to stream Netflix in 4K since it comes with a strong and fast WiFi. The just 8 GB of internal storage is more than enough so you can stream without any issues while installing some other applications too. The Xiaomi Mi Box S is a great value for money! Get it from Amazon here (US) or from Gearbest (EU).
Fire TV Stick 4K
The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K “Firestick” is a very loved device by a lot of people. Mostly because of its super compact size and easiness of use. Also lacks any basic connectivity but hey, it comes with a super-low price. Great remote and full integration with Amazon’s Alexa as expected. Lacks the Android TV Store by Google and while Amazons App Store is great, you will not find everything there. On the positive, it is also fantastic for Amazon’s Prime Video, of course, if you have a subscription. Get from Amazon here.
Fire TV Cube
Always from Amazon, the Fire TV Cube was a big gamble that got a great reception. More powerful than the Firestick, is capable of more things, Like 4K HDR10+ streaming, acts as an Alexa speaker so you voice control your devices. Also a more powerful six-core CPU and 16 GB of storage. If Amazon is your kind of stuff, the Cube is the best solution for you. Link on Amazon in order to get one here.
Apple TV 4K
The Apple TV 4K is not only great for Apple TV+ but also for Netflix. It is a very powerful device that is somehow neglected by the brand based in Cupertino. Not that many apps and games in the App Store but Netflix on this device is rock solid! The remote is like a joke, at times super annoying – at times great. That’s in most cases you will not really love it for Netflix since it is kind of a pain advancing video with it. Audio is also amazing with the Apple TV 4K. But when we talk about connectivity bottoms with other devices, Apple TV 4K is the champion by far. There is only a port for Ethernet, apart from the HDMI and the power cable port. Get it from Apple.
Nvidia Shield TV Pro
The new Nvidia Shield TV PRO is the updated version of the already amazing device by Nvidia, the Shield TV 2017, the champ of the streaming devices. Being already more powerful than any other device, they decided to keep it exactly the same. If not a little worse to be honest. But still, it is the best out there and now comes with a great new feature. The AI upscaling that can use artificial intelligence so it can upscale the quality of a Full HD 1080p video to 4K Ultra HD. It may sound science fiction but it really works great! Lacks of a dedicated audio port, you can only use the HDMI port for audio. Link on Amazon for purchase here.
The Best For Netflix 4K UHD / HD
As you can see, there are a lot of devices that support Netflix 4K UHD / HD and for different budgets. While some have better specs, or more storage or even some special functions, one thing is the same on all of them. They all stream Netflix in a superb way!
Not Only Netflix

What’s the difference between Android TV, Android TV Box and Fire TV? In the following video we talk about the differences of these so close but also different Android streaming devices that are so popular. They all share basically the same operating system, Android OS by Google but it comes in three different styles. Users can be very confused by these three different devices and selecting the correct one is usually a hard task. Also there is a lot of confusion when we talk about Android TV and Android TV Boxes. And while Fire TV by Amazon seems so different, is it really?
