Android

So this week my latest purchase arrived.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00E7OSRBE?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00

It is basically a Set Top Box running Android. I am Sky Customer and get SkyGo as part of the package. SkyGo works great on Phones and Tablets but there is no way of getting it out onto say a TV. I have a Motorola Xoom Tablet but the app disables the HDMI out port on it. So I was hoping to find something that could provide this functionality for when I am away from home.

Anyway, so far this little Set Top Box is looking good to go for this. I have managed to download SkyGo and install it. I cant log into my account yet because Sky has this stupid limit of one change per month (I have removed my old Samsung Note 2 in order to add my iPhone 6+).

But once I can do that I will report back with my findings.

In the meantime, it is an excellent little gadget with XBMC pre-installed although I had problems with it and decided to uninstall it and installed this instead

With this you can watch lots of foreign channels for free including the ones that televise Sport like Premier League matches. The commentary may be in another language but I think these are some of the ones places like cricinfo.tv stream but without all the annoying adverts and chat. I cant confirm this untill I there is a game on then I’ll give it a go.
