New range 7.0 Android Box now available in Ireland

android box 7.0

It is hard to keep up with technology these days and that is certainly the case with the latest trends in the world of android TV boxes. An android TV box is a small device about the size of a calculator or slightly bigger that runs on the android operating system. They are made to be connected to your TV and run via your internet connection either via WIFI or Ethernet cable and this allows you to stream content directly to your TV from the android box. It does not matter what sort of TV is in use as the android box does all of the work and the TV is merely used as a display monitor.

There have been many versions of android released including the popular kitkat 4.4 operating system which was later upgraded to android 5.1 lollipop and then on to android 6.0 marshmallow. A lot of android boxes are still being sold with the older version of android 4.4 and it is important to note that many apps will not work on this older version of android. Android 7.0 now has been released and the race is on to get them on to the boxes themselves. It is now the case that every few months a new version of android is coming out which means that customers will have to upgrade the box to keep up to date with the latest releases of the various software.

I would not rush out and buy a box just for android 7.0 just yet as it will take a while for it to iron out some glitches before it becomes perfect for running new releases from the various apps. So if you are in the market for an android box we would recommend anything with android 6.0 or android 7.0 to make sure you are not out of the date by the end of the year!

Why we think every home should have an Android Box

 The days of sitting in and flicking endlessly through television channels seem to be numbered with almost all big networks in the US such as FOX and HBO as well as Sky in the UK and Ireland reporting their worst quarterly ratings yet. This is no coincidence and there seems to be little that these huge networks are doing about it. The main reason ratings are falling is because people have become obsessed with watching their favorite shows on demand and the TV networks have been slow to catch up with this trend.

seem to be very popular and it is easy to see why. They are a very cheap alternative when compared with paying expensive TV bills to companies that can costs as much as $90 per month. For the price of 1 months subscription you can purchase an android box that will allow you to access Netflix and many other apps where you can watch your favorite shows when you wish.

Companies like Sky have tried to compete by offering their own on demand service and whilst this has helped they were still 5 years behind products like the android box or amazon firetick which has also become popular. On demand TV and movies is the future and TV networks need to figure out a way on how they can make money this way instead of traditional TV advertising as eventually advertisers are going to the way of the internet if ratings continue to fall.

Every home soon will have some sort of streaming device whether it be an android box, firestick, minix neo or even just streaming directly off of their laptop it is something that is going to happen. The android box in our opinion is the best option as it allows you to access more than just TV and movies and you essentially have your own entertainment system with this box.
