What can I use my RikoMagic Android TV Box for?
-Android TV boxes are all about XBMC. XBMC is an award winning and hugely popular open source media centre that is revolutionising the way people are watching TV across the globe.
-It works via a system of “Add-ons”, in a similar way to apps, which search the internet and is able to pull video content from all around the web and stream it straight to your TV.
-When you connect the RikoMagi box to your TV it gives you access to unlimited TV content from around the world, on demand, 24/7, at the touch of a butto.
How does it work?
- The MK902 Box comes preloaded with XBMC which means its ready to work straight out of the box.
- All you need to do is install your favourite add-on (sports, tv, films, networks) to XBMC and this allows the Mk902 to pull the content to your TV.
-To watch a program, you simply browse for your favourite programme and begin streaming it on your TV. You can pick and choose a specific episode of a specific season from your favourite TV show and play it whenever you want, or watch live sports such as football, tennis, basketball as well as catch the latest MMA and boxing prime time title fights.
-It is a revolutionary way of watching TV and is opening up television to the new world online streaming. Not only do you have free access to TV from almost every country in the world, but you can also watch backdated programmes as everything is stored in the cloud.
- You don't need to download any files or save them. It's simply plug and play - search for your TV programme and stream it straight to your TV, on demand, straight from the cloud. Best of all, its free.
