Hisense Pulse Pro Android TV Review [video] by SomeCoolTech

"This was my favorite thing (that I could afford) at CES 2014. Its an Android TV box that preforms very well. Its UI is lightning fast and the remote is the most usable remote I've found so far. I will be buying one as soon as it comes out. When it becomes available I'll put a link to it here in the description below.

This has the same version of Android TV that comes in Hisense's high end 4K TV with Android TV but you can get it in an inexpensive box."

Amazon Fire TV Going OTA? - zatznotfunny | mvpx_CTV | Scoop.it
As Rovi indicates TiVo could move away from retail hardware, it appears Amazon is preparing to offer over-the-air capabilities on Fire TV … which dovetails nicely with uncovered support to display live channels within the AFTV interface. The Fire TV would obviously need some sort of network tuner, a la HDHomeRun, or a USB accessory, like the Xbox One, to pull in the signal via antenna. …
