Asus’ Nexus Player, the device Google launched last year to introduce the world to its new Android TV platform, is now available in South Korea via the online Google Store. Following the first availability of the Nexus Player in the UK in March, and 9 additional countries last month, the Mountain View company is now selling the device in the Korean market as well.

Google has also today dropped the price of the device by a cool $20. While the set-top box was previously listed at $99, the Google Store now says that you can “Save $20” and grab it for $79—including free shipping. While Google is likely to wait until later this year to give the device a refresh, this sale comes at an interesting time with Google I/O kicking off in just a couple of days.

It’s not clear if this is a permanent price drop or a temporary sale, but we’ll know soon enough.
