Shortly after it’s initial pre-order window, the Nexus Player ran into trouble with the FCC as the device had not yet been approved for sale. Due to that Google had to pull pre-orders temporarily but we can now confirm they are back.
Over the weekend the FCC tested the device and gave it’s approval. The Nexus Player is now available again for pre-order at $99. Shipping starts in 3-4 weeks. Unfortunately the game controller isn’t back yet.
