Looking for the best Kodi box deals? Want to buy a new Kodi Android TV box? Follow our guide for the best options in the USA, UK and Canada for Kodi deals.
Is it time for a new Kodi box? Looking for a good Kodi Android TV deal? Android 4.4, installed on the majority of Kodi boxes, is almost three years old and has run its course. New features in the upcoming Kodi 17 version will require a minimum of Android 5.1 which means that support for 4.4 Android will be dropped! We have done research to find some of the best Kodi boxes that will keep up able to run Kodi as flawlessly as possible.
When looking at the best new Kodi box deals in the USA, UK, and Canada, there were some criteria we looked at.:
- Android 5.1+ Kodi boxes
- Amlogic S905-series CPU or better.
- Hard-wired Ethernet port.
- 2GB of RAM+
- Kodi 16.0+ pre-installed
Most other features are irrelevant. Android box sellers like to throw out buzzwords like “HD”, “4K”, or “3D” to make them sound up to date or more powerful. These words don’t say anything about the quality of the hardware, since Kodi add-ons are what drive the content to your TV screen.
If you want to be ambitious and not use Android, we recommend checking out a Chromebox, which has an Intel processor and PC specs. You can load an operating system called OpenELEC (or LibreELEC) onto it and enjoy Kodi.
