WeTek OpenELEC Box Features TV Tuner and OpenELEC


The WeTek OpenELEC TV Box is a media player collaboration between WeTek, manufacturers of the solid WeTek Play, and OpenELEC, developers of the standalone Kodi distribution. Much like the WeTek Play, the device features a TV tuner along with the plethora of features that comes with OpenELEC. There are 3 variants available, based on the TV standard: DVB-C/T, DVB-S(2) and ATSC.

Looking at the specifications and appearance of the WeTek OpenELEC box, it seems that the device is heavily based on the WeTek Play. The inclusions are the same too. Inside the box, you get the WeTek OpenELEC box, power supply, a remote control, debug cable and HDMI cable.

There are some obvious tweaks, with orange LEDs replacing the blue ones on the original model. Further under-the-hood changes

Getting One

Those wanting to get a WeTek OpenELEC box for yourself can purchase one from the official OpenELEC webshop for €99.

The listing does mention that it’s a limited edition, so I’m not sure how many units will be produced.
