Turn Your TV into a Smart TV On a Budget

I have received this product in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

It can be difficult to keep up with the changing times, having the newest phone and learning how to work the latest gadgets. Well maybe not for everyone, the kids seem to learn this kind of stuff so fast! My daughter is able to figure out how to work every gadget in our house in no time without any help from me, thankfully because I couldn’t even help her if I tried. Most of the new gadgets out there are above my head but I have found one that is not only easy to set up but so easy to use. It does everything I could ask for and I was able to figure it out all by myself.

I was even able to turn my TV into a Smart TV on a Budget! Now I can play games, stream my favorite shows, watch movies, listen to music, and more with the 4K Ultra HD Android TV Box.

The built-in Chromecast allows me to cast content from my handheld devices like my phone and tablet. This has been really helpful for me because I am always sharing content with my family like videos and photos that I just don’t want to upload to my accounts. It’s nice to be able to share the screen and see everything up on the big screen.

Another feature of the Jetstream 4K Ultra HD Android TV Box is the Voice Search Remote. I love being able to tell my google assistant what to do for me. It’s almost like having someone do the heavy lifting while you get exactly what you want. I can say things like Play It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia on Hulu and it gets my episode loaded and ready to watch on the big screen.

This device gives you easy access to 450,000+ movies and TV episodes across 4,5000+ paid or free channels including the most popular ones like Netflix, Hulu, and PBS Kids.

Some of the other notable features of this device include:

  • 4K Ultra High Definition
  • Quad-Core CPU
  • Dolby Audio
  • Wireless Connection
  • 60 frames per second video speed
  • 8GB storage to record
  • Includes 2 USB ports and MicroSD card slot

It’s really easy to set up and you know that’s true because I was able to do it all by myself. I usually struggle with stuff like this but the instructions and ease of access to the ports made this super simple to do. I never thought I would be able to watch anything I want so easily right on the big screen.

Speaking of watching on the big screen, my husband and I enjoy watching Theo Von’s Podcast, This Past Weekend. Since we have upgraded our entertainment with the Jetstream 4K Ultra HD Android TV Box we are able to watch this podcast on YouTube on the big screen. I got so excited about being able to watch the podcast, This Past Weekend, with my husband that I tweeted Theo about it and he tweeted back.

Having full access to all of our favorite shows, movies, podcasts, and even games to play makes the Jetstream 4K Ultra HD Android TV Box with Voice Search Remote (AGT418) a must-buy.

This is genius! Despite what my husband thinks, we do not need to replace the family room tv. Instead this is a perfect solution so we can still get the benefits of a smart tv without the huge dip into our savings.

This is such a handy feature. It seems so much more affordable than some other name brand streaming things.
