What is the difference between Saorview and Dreambox Ireland?

There is a lot of confusion around the various types of free TV boxes that are available and what the difference is between these and an android box. Firstly as stated in our older posts an android TV box is a completely different product although is used to do the same thing by some people as the free TV receivers. For example an android box is just an android computer and allows you to access apps like Facebook, Youtube and web browsers but it can also be used to stream movies and TV shows. A lot of people have now got these boxes to stream TV like RTE Player and ITV Hub and that is fine if you have a working internet connection.

A dreambox is a satellite TV box which means that you need to have a satellite dish in order for it to work. According to sites like dreambox Ireland you just need a satellite dish and a dreambox itself in order to get saorview and freesat channels. Most homes in Ireland have a satellite dish and this is a better option for quality reliable TV as a stream coming from the internet can go down and also you need a fast internet connection to get good quality streams without interruption.

If you live in an apartment block in which you are not allowed a satellite dish then an android box is a good option but if possible we would recommend viewing your sport on a dreambox which have become popular in Ireland.

What’s the best android TV box for watching sport?

best android tv boxAndroid TV boxes have taken Ireland by storm and the reason they are so popular is the fact that they can turn your existing TV into a smart TV by allowing you access to apps such as RTE player, Netflix, Facebook and many more options. For those of you who do not have a satellite dish then the android box is a good solution as you only need an internet connection to watch popular streaming apps like RTE player which will show the big GAA matches and rugby games online.

When it comes to which is the best android TV box it is a tough question to ask as many of them have a very similar specification and the same hardware but are offered at a different prices. The main thing to look at for when getting an android box is the amount of RAM (random access memory) in the box and also the graphics unit. When watching sport in particular you always want the best quality so the Mali GPU 450 is a popular graphics unit that will stream sports with no issues in HD. Also you want at least 2GB of RAM according to https://www.androidtvboxes.ie/ who have linked up with RTE to become the go to supplier of android boxes.

The best apps for streaming sport are of course the RTE player, ITV hub and also Sky go for sky subscription members. This will allow you to stream sport in HD directly to your TV where you could not otherwise do so!
