Disney Streaming Box Annouced at CES for $99
Today, the Consumer Electronics Show comes to a close, and with it we saw several new and exciting gadgets. We saw a triple screen concept laptop by Razer and a new HDMI cable that can support 8K video. Now, while it is nothing innovative, a new gadget by Disney could perhaps be a hot commodity among parents of young children. Making its public debut this year at CES is a Disney Streaming box that will retail for $99.
A new report from Tom’s Guide has provided the details on the new Disney Kids TV Streaming Box. Disney intends to market the device developed by Snakebyte to parents of young children who wish to have Disney content streaming to televisions with highly customizable parental controls and a simple interface. The $99 device will come pre-loaded will several Disney films, tv shows and games. It is not currently known at this time what titles these specifically are. The device will also be able to play content from various channels, as well as downloadable music and games. The device comes with a simple remote control, but there is also an optional video game controller that will be available for purchase for playing more complicated games. It sounds that most other Bluetooth-enabled video game controllers should work with the device also.
The report also mentions several customizable home screen themes, including two Frozen themes and a Mickey Mouse theme, displayed at CES this year. There is no set release date for the device, but it is currently expected to be released some time before the end of this year. What do you guys think?
