For those asking, "why should I buy a nexus player"?
My answer is this,
Think chromecast plus a little more. I love the chromecast for its simplicity but with google cast being part of the nexus player anything you can cast to your chromecast you can cast to your nexus player plus programs like slingtv, which doesn't work on chromecast, can be viewed via nexus player. The chromecast has its limitation and the nexus player goes beyond that. Is it the best player out, no, as I would rate the Roku 3 ahead of it, but if you have a chromecast but want just a little more then check out the nexus player.
