What to know before buying an Android TV Box

An Android TV box can take your TV viewing experience to the next level. You won’t be confined to watching scheduled programs on cable and satellite TV networks. You can watch the movies and programs you love, at your own convenience and only pay for what you need. However, you need to keep some things in mind before you purchase an Android TV box, such as:

  1. Not All Android TV Boxes are made Equal

Most customers are distracted by the specs and get lost in all the technical jargon related to the product. There are only two things you need to focus on when you are buying an Android TV box and they’re the RAM and the internal storage. A minimum of 2GB RAM and 8GB storage will allow you to stream movies and watch TV programs seamlessly. You also need to check how many USB ports the TV box has. Two/more ports will allow you to connect external memory drives and HDDs.

  1. You Can’t Watch Everything for Free

Some people are under the misapprehension that Android TV boxes will allow them to view all programs and movies free of cost. That’s certainly not the case; while you can watch freely available videos like YouTube content without paying money, you are required to pay to watch recently released movies, new programs, and other such content. For example, if you want to watch Captain America – Civil War once again, you would have to rent or purchase the movie online from Google or other similar services.

  1. Get The Most Recent OS

Most apps are compatible with recent OS and won’t work well with old, out-dated ones. For example, most apps available in the market today are compatible with Android 6 Marshmallow. You would have to purchase a TV box that has that version of the Android operation system. Older versions just won’t work as smoothly as modern ones.
