StreamSmart Internet TV box offers not only utmost functionality but also a sleek design through its elegant aluminum casing. These two traits—performance and appearance—best describe one of the little black boxes on the market today.
Qualities of StreamSmart
The stylish form is shown by its aluminum body that provides durability and maximum protection allowing you to carry the wonder box around and enjoy its rich features even outside of your homes.
Its excellent performance boasts of delivering non-stop entertainment contents with more than 1,000 channels to choose from, unlimited access to over 100,000 of your favorite movies and TV shows in HD, latest chart-topping music from hundreds of radio stations, pay-per-view events, wide variety of foreign contents, the best sporting events in the world (NBA, MLB, NHL, Boxing, Premier League) and so much more. The best part is you don’t have to wait for the shows to air unlike with Netflix. Most of the videos are available on demand or whenever you want to. All these for a one-time payment and no monthly subscriptions.
We have to separately mention the one distinguishing feature that StreamSmart TV box is well-known for – its superior customer support. Its LIVE CHAT support guarantees 24-hour customer service for that uninterrupted viewing pleasure.
Apple TV Features
Apple products are similarly associated not only with class and elegance, but with functionality as well. Indeed, Apple manages to sustain market leadership on its niche market because of these distinctive traits of its products. Its flagship device in the streaming media player market is the Apple TV.
With Apple TV you can connect to iTunes and watch on the large screens of your TV sets all the movies that you bought from the App Store. You can listen on your home theaters your favorite downloaded music too. Since AirPlay works with Apple TV, owners of Apple devices can transmit contents from their iPhones or iPads and enjoy movies and music on quality screens and speakers. It basically expands the capabilities of your TVs by giving them access to additional contents.
Does Apple TV have an edge over StreamSmart TV box?
The answer is No.
While Apple TV delivers multimedia contents similar to StreamSmart, more than a few significant weaknesses were noted on its features. Consider these drawbacks if you were to use Apple TV as your entertainment box provider:
- Limited range of contents unlike StreamSmart, which offers the widest variety of entertainment package.
- Price is relatively expensive compared to competitors.
- You are tied to iTunes. We all know that iTunes contents are not cheap.
- It is not a TV tuner–you cannot watch free air channels–nor a video recorder to record shows while you’re working or away from home.
- Basically, it just allows you to watch or listen to contents from your iPhone, iPad and Mac on your TV.
- Caters only to a select few who already own Apple devices and who may want to complete their collection of Apple products.
- For customers in some countries, you cannot stream from ITV Player or 40D app since they do not work with AirPlay.
StreamSmart TV box does not suffer from these limitations found in Apple TV. You are not confined to viewing just a few channels when you get SteamSmart TV. You are practically connected to just about every entertainment package provider out there on the Internet. This after all is the reason why you want to own that media box in the first place.
