Verizon Stream TV

The next generation of Stream TV.


Verizon on Tuesday unveiled its second-generation Stream TV, an Android TV-powered streaming device. The gadget, which shows top content from streaming apps like Netflix , Disney Plus , Hulu and Amazon Prime Video, features an updated user interface and organizes viewers' favorite shows so they can more easily resume watching content. Verizon is also launching a Stream TV mobile app, the company said in a release.

The device is available starting Tuesday for $70 on Verizon's site. New Verizon Fios or 5G Home customers can get a Stream TV free with a new installation. 

Stream TV supports 4K Ultra HD, HDR10 and HDR 10+ display formats. It comes with a remote with one-touch access to Google Assistant voice search and controls, allowing users to switch apps or search for a show using voice commands. If you lose the remote, hit the Stream TV power button twice, which prompts the remote to beep until you press any button.
