Buy Fully Loaded TV box in the UK from a trusted seller

Over the past few years’ online ‘box’ sellers have taken the term Fully Loaded Kodi / XBMC to advertise “Free Movies, Free Sports, Free TV!”. In this post, we are going to review all aspects of a fully loaded TV box. And we will also review our use of the term “Fully Loaded“. First of all EntertainmentBox® specialises in Android and Windows Powered Smart TV boxes, that are fully loaded with the right software. Enabling you access to apps, games and software updates that are all easily accessible through the internet. We do not load your Kodi full of addons that slow down the performance of your device. It is left completely down to the end user as to which kodi addons or kodi wizard is used.

Fully loaded Kodi / XBMC TV box

Kodi is a very special award winning media centre. That can be installed on most modern platforms it works like any other digital media centre. Allowing the user to play many different media formats. But unlike other media centres that need you to have a hard copy of the media file on a USB or another form of digital storage. Kodi (or XBMC as it was formally known) will allow you to watch content via the internet (streaming). Some online sellers tainted the term Fully Loaded Kodi / XBMC. By advertise Free Movies, Free sports, Free TV. How is this possible? Easy… Let’s take a quick look at how Kodi works.

How Kodi works?

Kodi Media Centre is an application that can be installed onto most platforms. Including Android TV boxesWindows PCiPhone, Apple TV 4. Kodi Media centre allows the use of 3rd party addons, these addons are created by many different developers. Addons can be added either by adding the URL directly into Kodi or by installing a zip file containing the addon. “Most of the addons literally fetch webpages from sites you could have otherwise streamed a video from in a normal web browser”. then prise it into the simplified lists you see in Kodi. These types of addons turn a hard to read or add filled page. Into something you can browse through from your sofa.

Fully loaded TV box on the black market

If you’re thinking about buying a TV box and the seller is offering you Fully loaded TV boxes you need to stop and ask yourself. What are they fully loading onto the device? As the Smart TV box market grows so will the greed from some of these Black-market sellers. Not only will they offer to pre-install many addons that could easily be installed by the end user. But will also install pop-ups and adverts generating even more revenue for the original seller. If you have not seen our Fully loaded Android TV Box warning or the official Kodi TV warning you should definitely have a read. If you purchase a device from EntertainmentBox. Then you can feel assured that your box will not have any of these unwanted addons, pop-ups, or viruses.

What are kodi builds? Kodi setup wizards?

Kodi can be customized with different backgrounds, menu bars, and skins. A setup wizard will customize your Kodi setup in a few clicks. It works by downloading many different addons and backgrounds then installing them all for you. This is called a Kodi build. (a kodi build is what the wizard puts on your device). There are 100s of different kodi setup wizards available. And also many different Android apps that will offer to set up kodi for you. You need to remember that if you decided to use any setup wizard. It will download many different addons so you have no control over what it downloads into your device.

What are fully loaded Android apps?

Fully loaded Android apps are applications that can be installed onto any Android operating system. Including TV boxes, tablets and mobile phones. Apps like “showboxmobdroCartoon HDMegaBox HDNewset Movies HD”, and many other Android applications offer the same or similar content. You can stream content directly through your TV Box onto your big screen TV. Most fully loaded TV box sellers will pre-install these apps before they send them to the customers. We on the other hand will not ship any device with the apps listed above. Again we leave this completely down to the end user.

Is using kodi and streaming legal?

Yes, it is completely legal to stream in the UK and EU if you do not download or store the media. Kodi works by streaming its content so it is not actually downloaded to your device it only streams through it. We have a very detailed post about kodi and just how legal it is

Each Android TV box has its own specific set of software, called the firmware. Like any piece of technology, it’s important to keep it updated. Android TV boxes usually come with the latest firmware versions that are available. The trouble is, that firmware can become out of date as fast as you can say “Google Update.”

Firmware is what is needed in most electronic devices today. But what is it exactly and what makes it so crucial for products to run smoothly?

For starters, firmware is essentially the programming needed for certain devices to perform their designed tasks.

Unlike software, we don’t use firmware to perform specific activities on devices, but instead use it for their main functions.

Because of this, firmware updates are occasionally needed to make sure the device operates the way it should, as bugs are fixed and programs are altered for consumer benefits.

Before downloading any firmware updates, verify the firmware you are downloading is appropriate for the specific model number of your product. If you have any doubts, contact Customer Service for guidance.We will not and can not be held responsible for incorrect use.
