TV set-top box x96 based on Android 6.0 for TVs and monitors, greatly expanding their capabilities.
First of all, the article will be interesting to those who have TVs not equipped with SNART TV software and its analogs. As you probably already know, SMART TVs allow you to easily access unlimited amount of audio and video content via the Internet. And for free! But what if your TV is modern and you are satisfied, but it does not have this function? Buy a prefix based on Android.
Let's first talk about the prefixes in general. As a rule, this is a small box no bigger than a router for example. Which is an independent mini computer running on the Androyd - roughly speaking it's a mobile phone without a screen (your screen is a TV). Such a set-top box allows not only to use the Internet browser on the TV (and this is movies, music, YouTube and so on), but also to fully experience the full power of the Google Play service. Google Play is free games, applications, movies, music, information and so on.

And now we will consider a specific prefix bought by me in the store Aliexpress. The cost of the set-top box x96 was $ 30 + $ 10 for a wireless keyboard. Just want to say that if you're not going to play it you do not need it! To control the prefix is enough ordinary mouse. By the way, x96 supports standard wireless devices without problems.

And so I have a SONY BRAVIA TV with a diagonal of 41 inches. Great, good, but without any modern pieces. In short, a TV-set. I bought a TV prefix x96, connected with an HDMI cable and got on my TV a full Androyd device. Through the Google Market installed applications ivi and megogo, thus I got the opportunity to view movies for free and in good quality!
In x96 there is a pre-installed IPTV application - watching TV channels via the Internet. There are few Russian-language channels, but in English it's just dark. For me, an excellent find was simply channels with clips and music. Well, see the video in more detail - write a lot.
