GENERAL QUESTIONS ABOUT ANDROID TV BOXES
While the Android TV Boxes do get live streams of all of the major network channels, they are most likely not from your local area. We suggest getting an antenna that is designed to get local channels through the air.
The Android TV box can run one TV at a time. However due to its small size and ease of hooking it up it can be moved from TV to TV very easily.
Tip – If you connect an extra HDMI cord to your second TV you will only need to transfer power cable to your second TV.
This will save you the trouble of moving the HDMI cable each time you want to switch televisions.
Yes, Multiple ’s can be used at one time off of the same internet connection. Please note that multiple ’s running at the same time will demand a faster internet connection. We recommend 10 Mbps per unit. So for 2 units we would recommend a 20 Mbps internet connection.
Yes you can still continue to use pay services such as Netflix or Hulu.
No. The laws state that downloading, possessing, distributing or profiting from copy written material is illegal. When you are streaming a TV show or movie you are not downloading it and are never in possession of it. Once the TV show or movie is done streaming all of the data from that stream is gone from your unit.
Yes, all of the current models come with built in Bluetooth.
Because the Android TV Boxes run on the Android operating system you can do everything you can do on an android phone or tablet. You are able to download any of the 800,000+ android applications from the app store. You can surf the web, watch Youtube videos, check emails, play games (We recommend this USB gaming controller, which you will find in Accessories by Clicking Here) and just about anything else that a normal android device can do.
Our Android TV box currently offers the KDPlayer. We update this media center as we see appropriate.
Does the media center come preloaded with all of the addons used to find popular video content, or do I need to install them myself?
The Android TV Boxes come with our Download Application already installed. The Download Application will keep all of your streaming applications up-to-date with the latest free add-ons and latest versions of all streaming applications!
All of the free KDPlayer addons on the boxes automatically update themselves.
Yes, all of the free KDPlayer addons that come on our units update their content offerings daily. This means that you can watch all of the latest video releases the same day they are added to the KDPlayer addon.
Yes, every TV Box is quality tested before it ships out to a customer. We offer a no questions asked 1 year warranty on each unit (Physical damage and Water damage caused by the customer is not included in this warranty.)
While you are able to download video content onto the hard drive of our products, we do not condone downloading copy written material. As everything can be viewed on demand we see no reason to record or download any of the content.
Yes you can connect an external hard drive to both of our models via a USB cord. However some external hard drives draw too much power for the USB port to provide. This more often happens with large external hard drives of 1 Tb or bigger. In this case you will need to provide your external hard drive with an external power source. These products can be found at almost any electronics store.
Unfortunately the KDPlayer is not able to block content by rating. However within the media center you can set a master password that needs to be entered in order to be able to open certain genres of content. For example you can place a password on video content, but leave music content open.
Absolutely not! All of the content and programs that come preloaded on the android TV boxes are completely free. We will never ask for monthly fees. Programs like Netflix and Hulu still require a monthly subscription.
Yes you can truly watch almost any live sporting event from all over the world. While we cannot guarantee that more obscure sports will have every game 99% of every live sporting event in the world is available to be viewed on the Android TV Box . While some streams may be in HD, most streams will be broadcast in standard definition. It does not matter what region of the country or the world you are in. None of the live sports are blocked by geographical location. For the more avid sports enthusiast we are constantly searching and testing for live/low cost HD TV providers.
