We discuss the controversial topic of the Dreambox

There has been some controversy over the last few weeks with streaming devices getting headlines in the Irish Times one of Ireland’s leading newspapers. It seems Sky in particular are kicking up a fuss and rightly so over the illegal streaming of their premium TV channels. Until recently it was OK to stream content over the web as long as it was not being stored on the device and/or re-shared. As of now it is illegal to even stream subscription channels over the internet. Another big issue has been sellers on eBay in particular selling what is known as sharing cards. These cards can be used with a range of satellite receivers to get premium channels for free. This of course is also illegal and how the sellers on Ebay are allowed do it is quite strange.

Ebay and Amazon have vowed to crack down on these sellers although I do not see any changes on either market place since that statement. A dreambox is a satellite receiver that can be used with one of these sharing cards but as I said this is illegal and I would recommend against it 100%. The problem is now such a device as the dreambox has a bad name when in fact it was not designed for this purpose. The dreambox was designed to be a satellite receiver which is of course legal as you can receive channels from the UK and Ireland for free as they are free to air channels.

So this has caused some confusion here in recent weeks and as I said the dreambox has a bad reputation now because of this. It is a great bit of kit and I highly recommend it as one of the best free satellite receivers on the market and if you are going to get it make sure you use a reputable seller like Dreambox TV Ireland. There are other rivals such as the Openbox and while these are also good the Zgemma H.2S and dreambox are just a level above as indicated by the price tag.


What has changed in the world of Android

gadgetsSo 2017 is upon us and as the year progresses faster than ever so does the world of technology and in particular the android box which is something we get asked about quite a bit since our post last August. A lot has changed since our last post. Android 6.0 has been released which is now the most up to date version of the open source operating system. Along with this, Kodi 17.0 has been released which will not run on the now outdated but still very popular version of android 4.4. So if you are running android 4.4 Kodi 17.0 and more recent versions that will be released in the future will not be able to run on android kitkat. Older versions of Kodi will still run fine but eventually Android 5.1 or 6.0 will be needed. If you have got a android box from our sister site at then send us an email on how to upgrade your box.

Some other changes are in the hardware which is always getting smaller and faster. The Q box for example has been released and has proven to be quite popular. Older boxes used to run on 1GB of RAM which are still available but are plagued with problems especially when running Kodi. They simply do not have the resources to run the android operating system and Kodi altogether. These boxes were selling for quite a low price so were popular but many of them I can imagine have had issues and from what I have heard they don’t really last too long also so you are better off getting a 2GB box at least in the future.

Other than that much is the same apart from some bad press on the legality of the boxes. The boxes of course are not illegal but can be used to stream illegal content..but then again so can a laptop. So comment below and let us know what android box you are running and give us some feedback on this post if possible!
