There has been much discussion about the android TV box or android box as they are called over the last few months. An android box can be used to browse the internet, access social media apps, access music apps such as soundcloud and of course they can be used to stream live TV both legally and illegally. This has caused much controversy in the newspapers over the last while as they have become so popular and many people are using these instead of paying for traditional TV services. They have become so popular because all of the content is on the demand and that is where society is heading over the last decade. Everything is on demand and even traditional TV channels such as Channel 4 have made their own demand service with other services such as Sky TV following suit.
You can use the android box to browse popular apps such as Netflix and most come installed with the open source entertainment system called Kodi which is also quite controversial. Kodi itself is perfectly legal but it can be used to run illegal add ons that allow people to stream TV on demand and movies for free.In saying that though a laptop can also be used for this as can a phone and there is no controversy over the availability of these products and rightly so.
In our opinion it is the TV stations that are behind the times and it is easy to point the finger at new technologies for their drop in ratings but they failed to keep up with the fast progressing tech world and they only have themselves to blame. With their large budgets they should have been investing in their own version of the android box or come up with some sort of app allowing people to view their programs on demand.
