Connections & Ports
-Android TV Dongles are all about XBMC. XBMC is an award winning and hugely popular open source media centre that is revolutionising the way people are watching TV across the globe.
-It works via a system of “Add-ons”, in a similar way to apps, which search the internet and is able to pull video content from all around the web and stream it straight to your TV.
-When you install XBMC to your Android TV Stick it gives you access to unlimited TV content from around the world, on demand, 24/7, at the touch of a button.
How does it work?
- The Android TV Dongle is compatible with XBMC. Simply download and install the latest version.
- Then all you need to do is install your favourite add-on (sports, tv, films, networks) to XBMC and this allows the dongle to pull the content to your TV.
-To watch a program, you simply browse for your favourite programme and begin streaming it on your TV. You can pick and choose a specific episode of a specific season from your favourite TV show and play it whenever you want, or watch live sports such as football, tennis, basketball as well as catch the latest MMA and boxing prime time title fights.
-It is a revolutionary way of watching TV and is opening up television to the new world online streaming. Not only do you have free access to TV from almost every country in the world, but you can also watch backdated programmes as everything is stored in the cloud.
- You don't need to download any files or save them. It's simply plug and play - search for your TV programme and stream it straight to your TV, on demand, straight from the cloud. Best of all, its free.

Here are four reasons why you may want to reconsider.
1) You will have to wait 2-4 weeks for the item to arrive, and then it may not arrive at all.
2) No matter what the seller will tell you, if you buy from outside the EU, you WILL have to pay 20% Vat and 14% Import duty. So what seems a cheaper purchase will have expensive hidden costs. Customs' invoices will be sent through 3-4 weeks after the item arrives.
3) If the seller attempts to aid you in avoiding these taxes by declaring the item illegally as a gift there is a high probability customs will impound the item. You will then have paid out a lot of money for nothing.
4) Warranty will be an issue if you buy from abroad. If you're lucky enough to buy from a Chinese or Hong Kong seller which does offer a warranty you'll find that should a fault occur the cost of sending the item back is hugely expensive (up to 50% of the item value). This is once of the reasons that they may be cheaper.

BEWARE OF SOME UK COMPANIES WHO DROP SHIP THEIR PRODUCTS FROM ABROAD. This means that you will have the same issues as if you bought from abroad. Always ask if they have items instock and where their stock is. A tell tale sign is companies who specify that deliveries can take 7-14 days. If they had their stock in the uk it would only take 1-3 days normally.
At MantisTech you can easily tell if any item is instock as each item has a stock indicator. We're also proud to have all items in stock in the UK ready for fast safe dispatch!
