All these so called android boxes are mostly gimics. They all run a tablet version of Android and come with no DRM support so no hd netflix etc. The preinstalled streaming apps are not legally sourced and when they eventually get taken down you won't be able to use them anymore. Since you already own the box you could probably open Google play and install the streaming apps yourself . If Google play is not installed you can sideload the apk yourself.

There are only 2 official android tv boxes. They are the Nvidia shield and the Xiaomi mi box. Those runs the official Google tv version which come with DRM support for netflix 4k and YouTube 4k and Chromecast support.
Any feedback on Roku and AC Ryan please? I am considering buying a streaming device, which has ethernet, so Chromecast and FireTV are out of consideration, I guess. I am not sure if WiFi will be reliable.
