The EBox TV stick is a real game changer with features like a dual boot Windows 10 and Android 5.1 OS and the ability to power this EBox TV stick from a USB port on the TV. A TV stick has many names they are also known as follows: TV dongle, smart stick, Firestick, HDMI Stick, or an internet TV stick, but the most common name is a Smart TV stick.
Internet TV stick
This internet TV stick is a powerhouse with a Cherry Trail Z8300 chip, 2GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Android 5.1 OS and a licensed version of Windows 10, USB 3.0 port to top it all off. You can see why we have decided to stock this internet TV stick. A popular and comparable product is the Amazon Fire TV stick However the disadvantage of this product is that it has an external plug so when you connect the Firestick to your TV it is that it still necessary to find a wall socket to power the device. This has been overcome with the EBox TV stick as it can be powered from any USB port, even the one found on most modern TV’s. This allows you to completely hide the stick from sight without having to have a power cable running down the side of the TV.
