Netflix can be side-loaded but this will only play videos in 480p resolution.

Summary
The MECOOL KM6 Android TV box is a great unit that will easily stream 4K movies, TV shows, and basic game-play.

The S905X4 processor is a big improvement over previous ARM Android TV box CPUs.

There is no lag while selecting an app or moving around the screen with very good performance.

All the popular TV streaming apps are available except for Netflix.

The Netflix APK can be side loaded but will only play in 480p resolution.

This is likely not much of an issue but something to keep in mind if you are a big Netflix fan.

Kodi installed quickly and easily from the App Store with no problems installing and using any of the popular add-ons.

I am still testing the unit so far with good results and will update if anything changes.

As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon, forums, or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
