Verizon's Stream TV supports Android TV, Disney+ but no Netflix

13 November 2019 0

Verizon has become the latest player in the market to introduce a set-top box. It has unveiled Stream TV as an Android TV-powered set-top-box (STB) to help users stream their favorite movies and TV shows on a big screen. It looks like any other STB out there and includes a remote control for navigating through menus, adjusting volume, and turning the box on/off.

The Stream TV supports 4K Ultra HD (UHD) resolution for compatible content. It offers Google Assistant for voice-based interactions and even features in-built Chromecast. It will come pre-installed with Disney+ app which is a streaming service that went live only a few hours ago. It also supports the installation of various other apps through the Google Play Store but for some reason, it does not support the leading streaming service Netflix.


Verizon has not explained why it does not support Netflix. This is undoubtedly surprising to see considering that Netflix is the streaming service with the most number of paying users. The only sign of hope is that Verizon has added "at this point" suggesting that things may change in the future.

If interested, you can get Verizon Stream TV for $69.99 which makes it a good offering if you are okay with no Netflix. It is said to be free for those who are a Verizon 5G Home subscriber. The free offering is limited to only one device per household and if you want to have more, you will have to pay full price for every additional unit.
