One year later, another Google TV streaming device is finally on the way

Another affordable Google TV option besides the Chromecast dongle.

What you need to know

  • Realme is preparing to launch a Google TV stick.
  • This will mark the second streaming device to launch with the platform after the Chromecast with Google TV.
  • The Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick will support HDMI 2.1 and HDR10+.
  • The launch will happen on October 13, where we should learn about pricing and availability.

When it comes to Google TV, you really have two options. You can either purchase the Chromecast with Google TV dongle or buy a whole new TV with the platform built-in. However, Realme is about to throw itself in the ring as another option with the imminent launch of its 4K Smart Google TV Stick.

The company has revealed the launch of its upcoming Google TV stick, which will happen on October 13.

As gleaned from the launch event page, the device will support 4K60, HDMI 2.1, and HDR10+. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like there will be Dolby Vision support. As previously teased, the stick will resemble some of the best Amazon Fire TV sticks as opposed to a dongle design like Google's device.

While there's no shortage of Android TV boxes and sticks, Google's dongle has been the only to run Google TV interface, so it's great to see another option arrive as the UI sets its sights on replacing Android TV by the end of 2022.

Sony and TCL have launched TV sets with the Google TV UI built-in, but the Realme stick would offer a much more affordable alternative.

That said, the Realme 4K Smart Google TV Stick will likely not reach U.S. shores and will likely mark the debut of Google TV in India. Hopefully, this will be the start of a slew of new Google TV streaming sticks and dongles for those not wanting to shell out for a new TV.

Notably, the device is launching the same day that the OnePlus 9 RT and the TicWatch Pro 3 Ultra, so October 13 is going to be a busy day.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to
