I have always wanted to try a “T.V. box”..but which one are you supposed to choose? There seems to be so many out there now a days. I was lucky enough to review the H96 Pro T.V. Box. Let me back up a little by saying I ditched cable awhile ago and attempted to use those antennas that supposedly have a good 50 mile radius to access local stations. Well What they don’t tell you is if you live a heavily wooded area…good luck in getting a signal! I refuse to go back to cable any pay those outrageous prices. So I subscribed to Hulu and Netflix and I also have Amazon Prime. I was happy to be able to stream those through the gaming consoles that I own. Yes I still pay for internet through the cable company and that alone is so expensive. Now I am paying for these subscriptions too. Which is still cheaper then paying for cable and internet. But of course I don’t have local stations. Because with that antenna I was using I got a whopping 2 stations that I’d actually watch (well only because nothing else was on). I’ll also point out I tried three different antennas and I’m less then 20 miles away from several local stations. But the TREES have kept me from getting my signal.
Let’s fast forward. The H96 Pro T.V. has arrived and changed my world completely. I can not only access everything online just as if I was on a tablet or laptop. But I can also download all of the Android apps. Not I have no interest in games or anything like that. But the apps I have decided on, I couldn’t be happier. I literally have over 10,000 different options where I can watch local T.V., ALL movies, stations from around the world and so much more. BTW, if you like sports you can access literally thousands of different stations. News, music, podcasts and even live webcam streaming. I mean it’s endless in what you can watch and discover.
The quality overall is very good. There are a few stations that may come in a little choppy but not many. Remember you are streaming from all over the world and it also depends on the strength of your internet condition. Apps are easy to download and uninstall. It is VERY user friendly. I plugged it in and it connected with my wifi instantly. There’s Bluetooth too and that also connected with ease. However, for some reason even though it connected there was no sound playing through the speaker it connected to. That’s not important to me and I’ll play around with it at some point.
Probably my one and only con is the remote. I really dislike it!! It’s cheaply made and I pray it lasts, otherwise I don’t know if I’ll be able to find a replacement. And it doesn’t come with batteries either. Sometimes it looses the connection with the box and I have to keep hitting the buttons. Also I should be able to control my T.V. with this remote and have yet to be able to get that to work. Perhaps my T.V. is to old. (it’s only about 5 years old).
Overall….I LOVE IT!!!! I will be cancelling ALL subscriptions and saving sooooo much money in the long run. I also plan on buying at least two more to give as Christmas present. I can’t say enough good things about the H96
