In basic terms, an Android TV box turns a TV into one which has the features of a smart TV. In other words, the TV becomes an interactive home PC whereby a whole host of new options become available. These options include; internet browsing, Skype, the downloading of games, video streaming, social networking options, the downloading of applications, the viewing and sharing of photos, webcam usage, movie watching, the reading of e-books and so much more.
All in all, it allows a television to become a TV and a computer in one. This is something which has pretty much-revolutionized family entertainment. It means that the features which usually one person can only enjoy on a computer can now be enjoyed by all. This also means that vast savings can be made because individuals do not have to spend a fortune on buying a smart TV as an Android TV box is much more affordable. All that an individual will need is their standard satellite provider and their Android TV box, which can be found through a whole host of different online stores. Make sure you do not fall victim to counterfeit electronics, though, as there are a lot of scammers out there.
