These Sharp devices are really expensive though, which means Android TV is not necessarily the top selling point. If you are looking for the Android TV experience, you can get it pretty cheap with a $99 add-on box, but if you have the budget and the desire to own a TV with all the features, go ahead and try a Sharp!
