Video streaming services have gone mainstream. Millions are subscribed to them thanks to engaging content, faster Internet, and innovative technologies. You can watch your favorite shows on multiple platforms from smartphones to tablets to laptops. These already have the capability to stream thanks to apps and browsers. However, many find them lacking as entertainment systems. They purchase special devices called an Android box which connect to modern televisions via the HDMI port. They have built-in apps that are optimized for streaming. You can also install your favorite apps if they aren’t there already. This box can improve your streaming experience in the following ways:
Immersive Viewing on a Big Screen
Watching on the small screen of your mobile phone is not bad if you are stuck somewhere and are too bored to do anything else. However, if you could have a choice, then you will probably choose to watch on a much bigger screen. That is exactly what your TV was meant to provide you. With a larger display, you will be able to see more details. You won’t miss any of the action as it unfolds. Follow along on wild car chases and crazy fight scenes. See individual soldiers as they give their life in epic clashes of armies.
Watch with Friends and Family
What’s nicer than watching your favorite shows? Sharing the experience with other people, of course! It’s fun to geek out on each character and dissect every episode with someone who is as passionate about the subject as you are. Make binge watching a family affair. Make some popcorn and drinks so that everyone can have a theater experience right there in your living room. You can also invite your friends over for a series marathon when a new season of a popular show comes out. Laugh, scream, cry, cheer, and fall in love together as the story goes up and down.
Enjoy Mobile Games and Apps
Although an Android box is primarily used to stream videos, that is not the only thing that it can do. It can also play your stored video files so you don’t need any other media player for your digital archive. You might even install games and play them on the big screen. Imagine racing other cars with great graphics on 50-inch display or larger. It would be like playing on a dedicated console. For many, this beats using a phone for gaming except when you are out and about.
