A new Walmart streaming box ... soon

An online report says that Walmart is releasing a new streaming box "soon."

I'm a fan of the Walmart Onn brand (styles as "onn.") streaming box, and the idea of an upgraded version is exciting to me.

91mobiles reports the device will be an upgrade to last year's device:

There isn't much that we know about Walmart's new 4K Pro Google TV streaming device but we can confirm from the moniker that this will be an upgraded model from last year's model. It could come with better hardware and 4K performance as compared to the regular 4K version. Since the other models are also priced affordably, this one too is expected to come with a pocket-friendly price tag.

The Onn Google TV 4K Streaming Box works mostly like the Google Chromecast. It has a similar UI with content recommendations and popular apps for streaming. You also get Google Chromecast and Google Assistant built-in. The 4K streaming device comes bundled with a white remote that has dedicated buttons for YouTube, Netflix, and Disney+.

The thing that doesn't track for me is that last year's device was actually a stick, not a box, and the new device is rumored to be a box.

My Steaming Life utilizes the Walmart device on a regular basis, although my primary TV has a Chromecast. The interface is the same, and the price savings more than makes up for any slight performance difference.
