Although we have done an article some time ago about the android box they have gotten very popular in the last 12 months. So why are they so popular and what exactly can they do?
With the coming of the android TV box the monopolistic nature of cable operators has come to an end.
You no longer need pay lots of cash to your operator for giving a minimal service and be over-
Charged in what is to be termed as tyranny of monopolists. The most recent form of Android TV has reached a point where they can deliver technology promised and expected and purchaser versus administrator gadgets, Big 4 stages, and TV-as-an-application.
There is still far to go before this all meets up, and communicating and developing this technology will probably not take decades anymore and can reach its expected stage very soon.
The Android TV box and other ‘Huge 4’ TV-as-an-application stages don’t abhor pay-TV. They overlook it by and large. Although the companies control most TV sectors for pay-TV or some other video benefit, there is no program manage; there are no straight channels; there is no DVR; there is no administrator VOD – that is, unless the administrator gives an application and contends with the various VOD administrations.
From one perspective, Android TV represents no risk at all to pay-TV and can play pleasantly with the current ‘television everywhere’ biological system. Then again, the android TV will soon leave the cable operators useless. The extreme effect of this will be on the sellers of pay-TV elements.
Also for Irish and UK expats who live abroad this is the perfect device to keep up with channels from the homeland. Recently an Irish expat setup a business selling thee boxes in Australia and has become quite successful. His site is http://www.androidtvaustralia.com.
Monopolist administrators of mobile phones at a time had control over almost all the customers, yet rapidly lost impact to Apple and Google because they could not deliver what the consumers really wanted with the change in time. A similar thing is probably going to happen to the administrator controlled set-up box. It is well known that the dusk of Cable operators has come with the advent of Android TV and they are never going to see the dawn any day.
