Perhaps in the future, Mi TV Box with Android TV 6.0 will be available in other countries.

Visually TV Box looks very nice, has a beautiful shape, is elegant and aesthetic therefore not surprising design award (Red Dot Design Award and GOOD DESIGN AWARD). As we said earlier Xiaomi Mi Box will run Android 6.0 TV, and also comes with a Bluetooth voice remote control powered by two AAA batteries, an HDMI cable, a 100/240V 50/60Hz to 5.2V power supply, and a user’s guide.
Mi Game controller can also be purchased as an option. The device obviously supports all DRM options to get 1080p and 4K video playback for YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, and so on.
Over the whole project mentoring leads Hugo Barra from the Xiaomi team. At the moment no information on price, we will keep you informed.
