Are Android boxes illegal?

Absolutely not! There’s nothing inherently illegal with an Android box. It is simply a streaming device running the pure Android TV operating system.

That said, there are some apps or streaming sites that could be illegal to use, depending on your country’s laws and regulations. However those same apps and streaming sites would also be illegal to use on your smartphone and tablets.

Do you need internet for an Android box?

For the most part yes but not totally necessarily. You can play video files from your local network, external hard drive, or flash drive without needing an internet connection. However if you want to stream content from sources like Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime or other streaming sites, you will need to be connected to the internet to do so.

Can an Android box play Netflix?

Absolutely! There’s a catch however. Netflix blocks 4K and HD content from devices that they haven’t specifically been certified for. That means even if you have an incredibly powerful Android box, you’re limited to standard definition video .

How long do Android boxes last?

Similar to smartphones and tablets, the usable life of an Android box is usually between four to six years.

While it’s highly unlikely that they will break down during that time, newer apps constantly come out that push the limits of the device’s hardware. They require more memory and more CPU power to run. Eventually you’ll reach a point where your Android box simply isn’t powerful enough to run them. Then it’s time to upgrade.
