A new kickstarter offering from Mohu promises to combine the best of web TV and traditional into it’s new little set-top box. The company previously known for selling Mohu Leaf antennas for digital TV signals, are looking to appeal to cord-cutters looking for low cost TV.
The box looks like an over-sized plug in dongle that comes with a qwerty keyboard/remote, with connections for a HDMI cable as well as an antenna slot giving the box traditional TV, streaming services and the web.
It will present users with a Channel Grid that integrates live TV and streaming services, and web bookmarks in a TV guide style. The device will be based around the Android OS so that it has access to plenty of apps from the Google Play Store at launch.
The Mohu box will come in different packages, just the box and remote and HDMI lead for $89, an antenna included in the second, and a signal booster added to the third.
Although it may just seem like another Android streaming box, the Mohu does have an antenna input, and will win or lose by the software that combines internet and OTA TV without the need to change inputs. Will it be a cord cutters dream, or another Android box destined for obscurity?
