Skystream TWO Official Release and Specs

Skystream TWO Android Streaming Media Player

If you have been following our Facebook Page you may have seen some teaser pictures with various math questions. Our idea was to slowly release some of the specs of the new Skystream TWO Streaming Media Center. But today is the day where you learn what we have been developing for the last 6 months, the Skystream TWO! We decided that we wanted to deliver a device with some serious, and we mean serious specs! We wanted to make the TWO extremely powerful, deliver some awesome new features, and we did just that!   Skystream TWO Operating System The Skystream TWO is running Android 7.1.2 Nougat. Android 7.1.2 is an extremely fast and powerful version of Android. But we weren’t happy with just having a great Android operating system. We wanted it faster and optimized for Streaming. So we collaborated with one of the most respected Android firmware developers from the XDA Developers (Android Developers) website to develop a highly polished operating system. We took out all of the bloatware, added system tweaks to speed up the processor and optimized just about everything else. This work increased our benchmark speeds by 10% compared to what the chipset manufacturer promises. Long story short, the Skystream TWO is insanely fast and can handle anything you throw at it.   Skystream TWO Chipset / Processor We decided to go with the AMLogic S912 Octa core processor. This is AMLogic’s most powerful processor ever made. It boasts 8 cores running at speeds of up to 2.0 Ghz. This is some serious horsepower that puts the Skystream TWO in a league with some PC’s. But we wanted to create a no holds barred streaming media playing with the some serious power! The S912 has 100% more processing power than the Skystream ONE processor!   Skystream TWO RAM We packed 3 Gb of RAM into the Skystream TWO. We could have stuck with 2 Gb, but we wanted our users to have an insane amount of power and the fastest box possible. So we decided on 3 Gb of DDR4 RAM to compliment the extremely powerful 8 core processor! 3Gb of RAM is 50% more than the Skystream ONE.   Skystream TWO Storage No one likes running out of storage, No one. We wanted our customers to have a huge amount of storage space. So we doubled the storage space to 32Gb (Minus Firmware and base apps.) This means that you will be able to store more pictures, apps, home movies, Etc… No more having to delete an app so you can install a new one! 32Gb is 100% more storage space than the Skystream ONE! Skystream TWO Voice Capabilities (Upgraded airmouse required) With voice technology becoming so popular lately, we wanted to include this capability into the Skystream TWO. Users will be able to press the voice button on the airmouse remote and say “OK Google, Search for a local restaurant” “OK Google, what is the weather today?” “OK Google, Search Netflix for Stranger Things.” With…

What are Android TV Boxes

SkystreamX is always on the cutting edge of technology. When we started developing the SkystreamX Android TV Boxes we started to tell our friends about it. They seemed to be mystified and had a hard time understanding what it was. The number one question we got was (Does it have Netflix?) So I decided to write this article to explain a little better about what Android TV Boxes are and what they do. What are Android TV Boxes? Android TV Boxes are in the category of Set Top boxes. A Set Top Box is a small computer that is designed to connect to your TV using an HDMI Cable or AV Cable (SkystreamX can connect using either one and comes with both.) Android Set Top boxes are basically android tablets without a screen. Your TV becomes the screen once you hook up your Android Set Top Box. Android TV Boxes turn your TV into an android tablet with about 2 minutes of set up. If you have ever wished you could use all of your android apps on your TV then an Android TV Box is for you. What do Android TV Boxes do? I could write for hours on this subject, but I am going to break this section into a few categories to save time. An Android TV Box can do everything that a normal Android Tablet or Phone can do, plus much more. Android TV Boxes Android Apps With an Android TV Box you can download and use any Android App in the Google Play store. There are over 800,000+ Android Apps currently available in the Google Play Store. So when people ask what can Android TV Boxes do, it is hard to answer because the possibilities are endless. Here are some popular Android Apps that you can use on an Android Set Top Box. Social Media Facebook Twitter Instagram Linkedin Four Square Tumblr Reddit Games (A USB gaming controller might be needed to play certain games) Candy Crush Subway Surfers Clash of the Clans Farm Heroes Despicable Me Angry Birds Music Pandora Soundcloud Spotify Beats Music Shazam iHeart Radio News The New York Times The Wall Street Journal Barrons The Washington Post The Huffington Post CNET When it comes to Android Apps the Google Play store has you covered. There is literally an app for anything you could possible want to do on an Android Set Top Box. This is one of the many reasons that Android TV Boxes have become so popular recently and have started gaining popularity over closed system set top boxes like Roku. Android TV Boxes – Watching TV & Movies One of the main reasons that people are rushing out to by Android TV Boxes like the SkystreamX is that they want to watch TV, Movies & Live Sports on their TV’s without paying for expensive cable services and premium channels. Most Android TV Boxes are capable of streaming TV shows and movies to your TV. But where most of them…
