As technology continues to race from one new marvel to the next it is no wonder that the android TV box has become such a popular product all around the world but particularly in Australia. Australia is known to be an expensive country and cable networks such as Foxtel charge well over $100 for their main monthly package which is quite a lot of money for a lot of people. It is for this reason that a lot of people are turning to internet TV such as Stan here in Australia. Not only is it a lot cheaper but you have so much content at the press of a button on demand which is something companies like Foxtel will find it hard to compete against.
Stan is $9.99 per month and provides you with thousands of movies and TV programs on demand. People then need a device to stream this content from. Traditionally many people used their laptops and connect their laptop to their TV via HDMI cable but that was before devices like the android box became readily available and at affordable prices. You can now pick up a decent android TV box for around $100 and it is a one off fee as the box is not associated with any apps, it is merely a piece of hardware to stream apps on and there is often confusion over this.
Because of this affordable price many people are purchasing these android boxes here in Australia and using apps like Stan while they cancel their expensive Foxtel service. Foxtel in particular have been slow to combat the technology boom that is the android box and they have not really lowered their prices to compete with such technology.
