How can an old TV be upgraded to a smart TV?

These days, we get most of our information from the radio, TV, and the Internet. However, technology is always evolving, so companies constantly develop new and improved devices. That means people worldwide buy hundreds of thousands of TVs, tablets, smartphones, and audio systems daily, each with more features and capabilities than the last.

But it wasn’t all that long ago that a basic TV, which you might keep in your bedroom or living room for years, was considered pretty up-to-date. Unfortunately, those old devices don’t cut it by today’s standards. 

So what should we do? Get rid of the old “dinosaur” TV and spend money on a new one that will be obsolete in a few years? Not necessarily!

If you’ve got an old TV lying around, don’t worry — it’s not obsolete! Instead, a set-top box like the MAG520 by Infomir can breathe new life into it. You can connect the box to your TV in one of two ways: either with an HDMI connector or through a 3.5 mm composite output, depending on what your TV supports. Once everything’s hooked up, you can watch content on your old TV just as well as you would on a newer, mid-range smart TV. And if you have a newer TV without smart features, we suggest picking up an Android TV™ device to unlock even more potential.

Which is the best Android TV box to buy?

If you’re looking to buy an Android TV box, we’re here to help. First, it’s important to understand what makes a good one to make the best choice for your needs. With an Android TV box, you’ll be able to turn your TV into a smart TV, complete with Internet access and voice search capabilities. Plus, you’ll be able to watch all your favorite shows and movies from various sources, such as IPTV/OTT services, network-attached storage, or even your hard drive. The MAG500A is one Android TV box that fits the bill — it’s definitely worth checking out.

What makes a good Android TV box?

With the MAG500A, you’re getting a device packed with features. It plays 4K content, supports HDR, and has an Auto Frame Rate feature for smooth playback. Plus, you’ll have access to the Google Play store, with around 7,000 games and apps to choose from. There’s also Chromecast built-in, so you can easily cast content from your smartphone to your TV.

This set-top box also gives you multiple internet connection options, with a Wi-Fi adapter and a regular Ethernet port. This makes it even more reliable than many of its competitors. Plus, the developers are constantly updating the software, so you know you’ll always be up to date with the latest technology.

In essence, the MAG500A is a great choice if you don’t want to spend a ton of money on a TV that might not be able to keep up with new technology in a few years.
