Mecool KT1 4K AV1 capable Android TV STB ships with DVB-T2 tuner

Amlogic S905X4 TV boxes such as Mecool KM6 have already been available for a few months with the main selling being support for 4K AV1 video hardware decoding.

But if you’d like to watch AV1 YouTube or Netflix videos, and also get free-to-air channels using older codecs, Mecool KT1 adds a DVB-T2 TV tuner that works in the EMEA region, some Asian countries, Oceania, and a few other countries that adopted the standard.

4K AV1 TV Box with DVB-T2 Tuner

The TV box runs Android 10 for Android TV (i.e. it’s a certified Android TV media player) with Google Play Store, Google Assistant, Youtube, Amazon Prime Video, built-in Chromecast support, etc… The device ships with an IR and Bluetooth voice remote control, a power adapter, an HDMI cable, and a user manual. Mecool KT1 is basically the same as Mecool KM6 Classic Edition, except for the DVB-T2 tuner and a different enclosure.

Mecool KT1 EPG

The box seems to come with a more polished version of the DTV app found in the Mecool KIII Pro Hybrid STB with support for channel scanning, electronic program guide (EPG), favorites, personal video recorder (PVR), etc…

Mecool KT1 is sold for $79.99 with free shipping on Aliexpress. That is if you order from Thailand because if I change the country to the US, the price increases to $86.99 also with “free shipping”
