About Internet streaming boxes
Internet streaming boxes use applications to stream content to your TV box. With access to over 1 million apps, it is possible to stream content from many, many TV service providers. There are apps for sports, movies, TV shows and even international TV stations. These are easily installed from one of the many app stores that are pre installed on all T8 V boxes. Some apps will require a monthly subscription like Netflix, Amazon prime, Hulu but you can also use other streaming apps such as Kodi, EBox MC, Plex, ITV Hub, BBC iPlayer that do not require a subscription.
If the app you are searching for is not available in one of the many app stores then it is possible to use the built in web browser to download and install applications. Another good feature is the ability to change the location of your device using a VPN. This feature is extremely useful if you wanted to use Geo-restricted, Geo-blocked apps (apps that only allow usage in a certain countries or location).

What is new in this T8 V internet box?
With every new T8 internet box release, we add new features, please see below for most recent changes:
- Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow: With each new releases of an Amlogic chip we also get new features like the latest OS, this release is no different bringing about Android 6.0.1 to smart TV boxes.
- GPU, Processor: Octa-Core ARM Mali-T820MP3, the Amlogic S912 is a CPU with 64bit Octa–core ARM Cortex-A53 and high performance. This internet streaming box is also ready for high demand internet gaming, HD streaming and heavy duty Android gaming.
- 4K HDR at 60Hz HDR is that it can provide a higher level of contrast between light and dark images on the screen to create a much more realistic image. That may not sound like a lot on paper, but in reality, it’s a pretty significant move. In fact, many in the industry believe HDR represents a significantly bigger leap in picture quality than UHD’s higher resolution. Let’s be clear here: HDR is not the next “3D.” HDR is here to stay, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
- 10-bit deep colour: With 10-bit colour, you get 1,024 shades of each primary colour and over a billion possible colours. Most 4K TVs will come with full HDR colour by 2017 and its is a wonderful thing to behold because the colour enhancements delivered by wide colour gamut and 10-bit colour is huge when compared to what you’d see with regular SDR display and 8-bit colour. If your TV supports 10-bit colour then this box will blow you away with how in-depth the visual experience is.
- Custom dual launcher for beginners and expert users: If you are new to an internet box then our launcher for beginners will help you learn about your device as you go. With links to our forum or help centre and setup guides it will help you better understand your device. For more experienced users you can switch to the basic launcher without any notification. You can also chose to switch between launchers at any time.
