If you don’t like your local TV services or content, or if you don’t want to pay the TV service, or you have other reasons such as you are speaking another language and want to watch TV or video are provided by another country, how will you resolve your problem ? You might say there are free TV services and you can buy outdoor or indoor digital antenna, but you still can only get your local TV, and channels are very limited.
Why we need a TV Box ?
Firstly, a TV Box is the best solution for resolving all problems which are mentioned above. Secondly, a TV Box is just like a macro “Computer”, it can access internet to get many many video and TV resources for free or payable, and you can select what you want and what you like; Also, a TV Box has enough features: HDMI, WIFI, Bluetooth, Remoter… etc.
Why do not use Computer directly ?
Yes, you can use computer, if you do not think the computer is too big, and you have remoter for your computer, and you think it is convenient for connecting / disconnecting between your computer and TV, and you think your other family members know how to use computer well, and, you can collect all TV resources on your computer very conveniently. You even do not need a TV, just use your computer directly.
