Thanks to the latest multimedia and entertainment technology, just about any TV can be transformed into a powerhouse of streaming content.

In today’s age, A TV box, also known as a streaming media player or set-top box, is a device that connects traditional televisions through HDMI, allowing users to stream digital content from the internet. With a plethora of options available, consumers are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the right solution to meet the needs of their households.

Despite this, Chinese electronics giant, Xiaomi, recognised as a global leader in innovation and technology - has pivoted itself as the frontrunner in the streaming space by offering cutting-edge solutions designed to enhance your entertainment experience.

Xiaomi has been lauded as one of the top three Android phone brands worldwide, and brings its innovative expertise into the TV Box space - transitioning to the Google TV platform from Android TV.

These devices are also a powerhouse for entertainment, enhancing viewing experiences through advanced technology, including support for 4K video, Dolby Vision®, and HDR10+ bringing stunning visuals and crystal clear audio.

With smooth performance, versatile connectivity options, and voice control features, Xiaomi streaming devices offer convenience and ease of use - not to mention portability from devices like the TV stick.

To this day, the company’s first-generation Xiaomi TV Box S frequently receives firmware updates, to ensure optimal performance and compatibility with the latest streaming apps and services. This also showcases the brand’s belief in their products and their long term use.

Xiaomi’s streaming devices have also been praised among locals. Xiaomi devices emerged as one of the top-reviewed products by Takealot, garnering praise from thousands of satisfied South African homes.
