    My thoughts about the Nexus Player is this: It has been out now for 2 months. In that 2 months the addition of apps (except for games) has been almost non existant. The usual apps such as Netflix and Hulu are present, but not popular apps such as HBO Go, Xfinity, Amazon Instant Video and etc. That doesn't bother ME. I have Kodi installed, the ability to sideload, surf the Net via a bluetooth mouse and keyboard and things such as those. For me and other Android enthusiasts the Nexus Player is great. However...the average consumer isn't going to know all that and many aren't going to care. Consumers are buying into the Nexus Player because of mainstream apps. Eventually they will realize that there are no new apps added and that the available apps are slim. Consumers will walk. They have Fire TV, Chromecast and Roku to choose from. Developers are not going to create apps for a device that is not selling. Further...Google will eventually stop support of the Nexus Player and it too willl join the Nexus Q. It's great that Best Buy and New Egg have started selling the Nexus Player. This should have been the case upon it's release. Right now...the way things are...I have alot of doubt about the future of the Nexus Player.

    Good synopsis, one area of development that is promising is a new rom is available called lollirock which provides a full Android 5.0 UI. I am waiting for it to mature a bit more and see if things start moving with ATV, but I am looking more and more at lollirock to break the NP into a full fledged Android box.
