The Streaming Field 8000 is the work of Streamview, and its web site notes it has licensed the Nokia model to promote Good TVs, set-top packing containers, and DAB+ radios throughout Europe, the Center East, and Africa. The streaming field reportedly helps 4K playback, prices €100, and will likely be out there later this yr — although a precise launch date and international locations have but to be confirmed.
The Streaming Field 8000 technically isn’t the primary Android TV field to bear the Nokia model title. Earlier this yr, Flipkart launched the Nokia Media Streamer in India, which it sells alongside a number of Nokia-branded TVs. Nevertheless, this may very well be the primary such machine to launch in Europe.
In accordance with @androidtv_rumor, the Streaming Field 8000 is technically a rebranded streaming machine from SEI Robotics.

From the photographs printed by Golem.de, we are able to see the streaming field has a typical array of ports, together with an HDMI port, Optical Audio out, USB-C, USB-A, and wired Ethernet.
Maybe most significantly, it comes with a pleasant full-size distant with a typical array of controls. There are 4 shortcut buttons for accessing streaming providers, together with YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Google Play.
HMD, which licenses the Nokia title to promote smartphones, isn’t concerned with the Streaming Field 8000.
Though it’s a well-liked built-in good TV working system, standalone Android TV streaming packing containers have been a bit thinner on the bottom lately. Nevertheless, between this and Google’s just lately launched Chromecast with Google TV, it sounds just like the working system may very well be getting a brand new lease on life.
