I have never claimed to be the most technology savvy person around even though I am still in my 20s but I have to say I think the android TV box is a great piece of kit. As always with these things I have been pretty hesitant to pick up on this new trend that seems to be happening across the Ireland. I first heard of them when my friend offered me one for free to try out. I politely declined as I already have enough boxes around my TV including UPC, Apple TV not to mention my Wii and Playstation so the thought of another box around the TV wasn’t particularly inviting.
Eventually however I became sick of paying UPC over €50.00 per month when I don’t even watch that much TV so I rang him and told him to drop it over. Within a few hours I was hooked. All my favorite films are on it and you can even watch live sports from across the world. The term android TV box doesn’t do it justice as it is really a media centre. I asked him how much do they usually cost and they start from approx. €100. Not bad as that is only 2 months worth of TV bills and then I won’t have to pay any more bills!
I am not sure of the difference between the android TV boxes on the market but from what I can see they are all very similar and run on the same operating system. I think the big difference is RAM speed and also storage although I don’t think you need to store anything as everything is streamed.
