We will then install some add-on features and services, but we do not imply or suggest that we provide any specific additional service or advice for these features.
  • Ethernet cable or adapters (Homeplugs or Powerline adapters) - We would strongly suggest that an ethernet cable or homeplugs/powerline adapters are used, instead of WIFI connections.
  • Fast broadband and not standard broadband - as with any streaming or online game playing, the faster your broadband service, the better your online streaming or gaming experience will be. Standard broadband speeds may cause any streaming or online game playing to pause or stop (buffer)
  • Restrictions - Your ISP may or may not place restrictions of use via their online service (your account settings) or via their internet equipment (router). If your media box does not seem to work with your ISP or with your equipment - see the bottom of this page for more details.
  • Legal bit - We will not be offering any method to view material that you are not legally able to view or any method to view subscription based media. We do not support any of the software, we only support the hardware.
  • If you require a price for an Android media box, please contact us. We presently can supply either an 8GB, 16GB or 32GB version with either Android 5.1 or 6.0.

  • Kodi Version 17.4 is out and 18 is being tested

    Kodi, is a media player that was previously known as XBMC. It has a lot of hidden features thanks to its huge collection of Kodi add-ons, that bring even more functionality to the media player.
  • But, on its surface Kodi is already a fantastic media player that has become almost the default software for many home theatre PCs thanks to its slick interface that has been built especially for TVs. It's also the standard player on a variety of Android-based media players and set-top boxes.
  • You can unlock all sorts of new abilities with the exciting world of unofficial Kodi add-ons. These add-ons can give you access to a universe of streamed audio and video, making Kodi the only software you might need to act as the front-end of your entire home entertainment setup.
  • However, this add-on and all of its features do not affect any features or apps already installed on the media device.
  • We can now supply some of these devices, but we only add legal software to your device or to any device that we sell. Please do not ask for anything illegal!
  • This service is charged at £35.00 per hour.

    • Media Player Add-ons

      This service - We can add software and add-ons to Android media streaming devices only. There are various ones being sold on the Internet and most will allow additional software to be added. We can install Kodi software and then add various additional add-ons into it. The add-ons then give the user ability to watch media from various websites via the Android device, on their television or computer.
    • The additional applications (apps) and software do not affect the device and the original software, but it may affect any warranties if the device needs to be replaced and has found to be adjusted by the user, which then leads to a unit failure.
    • Some of the Android boxes come with various USB ports and SD card slots - we can set them up as full media players and even network them to a MS Windows computer. Memory sticks, external hard disk drives and media cards can all be used.

There are some names you maybe haven't seen before, they all offer different types of media and genres. We would suggest that you have an unlimited broadband service and have one of the faster packages (not essential) from your ISP provider - this is the same for any streamed media, including mainstream services such as: BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, Amazon and many more.

There are always new add-ons appearing but in the list below you will see some old names, names you can trust to give you exactly what you want and some new ones.
