So you’ve made the jump! You’ve decided to cut the cable and join the millions of people around the world known as “cord cutters” or “streamers”.
Hopefully you’ve made the best choice by purchasing an Element Android TV Box as your streaming device (We’re a little biased, but we think they’re the best.)
We get a lot of questions about what to expect or where to find certain things. We’re going to answer some of the most common questions that we get.
Can I Stream Local Channels?
With the help of an HD Antenna, you definitely can! You can stream your live, local news and more in crystal clear HD. The signal from an over-the-air antenna is not compressed like it is on a cable broadcast. This means that you’ll get the best signal! This is great for football season as well, as many games are broadcast on local channels.
Can I still watch all of my favorite channels?
You can get your live local channels with an HD Antenna. If you’re set on a specific channel, however, you may not be able to get it.
But why would you want to watch a certain channel when you can watch all of your favorite shows and movies ON DEMAND! There are free options in the Kodi app, plus thousands more options through apps like Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu, and more.
The best part is, this pretty much eliminates commercials. That’s a winner in our book!
Can I stream live sports?
This is one that’s near and dear to our hearts. We happen to be big fans of sports. The answer is yes, you can stream live sports!
There are add-ons in Kodi like Sports Access and Castaway, as well as tons of other options. Sling TV is again a great option, as well as the ESPN and NBC Sports apps. (All of these apps besides Kodi can be installed on your Element box through the Google Play Store.)
There are also sports specific apps through MLB, NBA, WWE, and UFC that allow you to stream your favorite content.
Is DVR available?
There are PVR clients available in Kodi, however, we don’t recommend them. They go up and down so quickly that they can be really frustrating to use.
Again, this is one of the best things about streaming. Mostly everything is available ON DEMAND. It’s the same as plopping down on your couch and scrolling through your DVR list. You pull up the apps and streams that you want to watch and Boom, you start streaming. With streaming you don’t have to delete anything or worry about old shows eating up your DVR storage. Dare we say it’s better?
Can I save money?
The answer is an emphatic yes! We’ve surveyed our customers, many of whom say they’re saving over $100 per month. We heard from one customer who was saving over $200 per month.
The amount of savings will vary depending on the solutions you use when you’ve cut the cord. Some people need 3-4 paid services to get all of their favorite content.
The great thing about an Element Android TV Box is that you can watch all of your favorite Movies, TV Shows, and live sports with NO monthly fees!
What’s the best solution?
We feel like Element Android TV Boxes are the best choice for any potential cord cutter. Not only are there NO monthly fees for unlimited streaming options, but it’s very easy to use and comes with the best customer support.
Stop paying hundreds of dollars a month for the 5 shows that you actually watch. Join the millions of savvy customers cutting the cable and choosing an Element Android TV Box.
