Mecool KM2: Android Box with Netflix and Google Services

Mecool has launched the new KM2 , a new Android TV Box that comes with practically everything that users are interested in having on their television. With Google certification, this device has access to the Play Store, and can also have seamless access to Netflix and Prime Video services. The best? Its excellent price.

An Android TV Box with access to Netflix

It is one of the biggest problems. Many of the Android TV Boxes on the market offer all kinds of functions and technical specifications, but at the moment of truth, they do not have access to Google services or they are left without access to streaming services as important as Netflix.

Well, that’s exactly what the new Mecool KM2 comes to fix, an Android TV Box that inherits the body of other previous models and that boasts Android TV 10, so we will enjoy the new Google TV interface that is already there reaching some Smart TVs on the market.

Just because a device has access to the Play Store doesn’t mean you can easily install Netflix. The service will have to give access to the device if it has the appropriate codecs and certifications , some permits that require certain technical requirements and sometimes fees that the manufacturer must pay.

In the case of the Mecool KM2, it has Widevine L1 and Playready 3000 , so this Android TV Box is capable of encoding and receiving 4K video from the different services available. And the offer is the maximum that can be offered, since it will allow us to access Netflix, Prime Video , Disney + and HBO, the first two having a dedicated button on the remote control.

How much?

The new Mecool KM2 is now available for reservation through the manufacturer’s official store on Aliexpress, and the first orders will begin to ship from mid-April. Its price is currently about 55 euros to change, which seems to us a great price to enjoy a complete Android TV, with the latest version of the operating system and with the possibility of accessing all the streaming services on the market.

We leave you with the link of the product on Aliexpress so you can take a look at it, although we are sure that in the coming weeks it should also be available on Amazon through other stores and distributors.
