Google announced the player, the first device to run Google’s new Android TV operating system, last week and was due to begin pre-sales of the device on Friday.
However, the purchase link is no longer available on the Nexus Player site, and Google has posted a statement on the page reading: “This device has not been approved by the Federal Communications Commission. It is not for sale until approval of the FCC has been obtained.”
Google touted the Nexus Player as a “first-of-its-kind Android gaming device,” as well as a streaming media player for movies, music and videos.
The device contains a 1.8GHz quad core Intel Atom chip, 802.11ac WiFi and HDMI out, also comes with a voice-activated remote control.
The FCC regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable in the US.
