ServerWMC and Kodi 19.3 on Android TV

The latest TV box/dongles are becoming increasingly more powerful with good 4K capabilities, enough so that I now wonder if all my HTPCs are overkill. While it takes a couple hundred dollars investment in hardware to build an HTPC with 4K capability, I can pick up an Android TV box for $25 or less that can do 4K HDR without breaking a sweat.
Been thinking about what might be the pros and cons of going to a single WMC machine running as a server using ServerWMC and Kodi 19.3 on Android TV boxes. The obvious con is the UI will obviously not be the nice and simple WMC UI, but other than that, what are other drawbacks? Will watching LiveTV be limited to one client, or can multiple clients watch LiveTV at the same time?
