WeTek is a sponsor of Kodi and OpenELEC, the company which is responsible for the success of their devices called WeTek Play (review here) equipped with DVB-T2, DVB-S2 or ATSC tuners. Despite the fact that WeTeK Core is available on the manufacturer’s website is still unavailable in the WeTek online shop, but WeTeK enables the pre–reservation and capability for receiving a 10% discount on the purchase of the Core TV Box. As WeTek says: “If you already have WeTek Play, or you will trade your MAG stb with WeTek Core we will give you 10% discount“.
There are still 23 days to receive discounts. Probably the first Wetek Core models can be purchased in November. At the moment there is no information about the price (Probably around €100).
