What Are Android TV Boxes?
With the aid of an Android TV box, you can make your television smart, with a wide range of options. Attach the streaming box and set it up to the internet through Wi-FI or a wired ethernet connection. Once the box is connected to the TV, apps can be installed. Android OS runs on ARM based processors making it compatible with any device using the same hardware. The OS is open source and free and can be used with smartphones to provide better usability.

The multimedia device even plays music and lets the user browse the net. Android TV boxes must have access to open internet through either Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet. To connect to the WiFi, a router and active internet service are needed. The XBMC interface enables the TV box to work and features a home screen offering customization for movies, TV shows, add ons and custom options. Select music, media and games using this interface on the streaming media. Popular add ons can be downloaded using Fusion to permit the XBMC interface to enable the TV box to stream media on the television. Use a wireless keyboard if you want to add to the browsing experience. To access apps, streaming services and games, Android TV boxes need to connect you to Google Play where applications, music, movies and shows are waiting to be downloaded.
Why Should I Buy an Android TV Box?
Android TV boxes can share your photos, songs and videos with others through your TV, and are portable and lightweight. They can even work with your smartphone, turning it into a remote control or web browser.
