Zoomtak Release The K5 Android TV Box

The Asian company Zoomtak have released their new K5 android TV box which allows streaming across multiple apps and media types. I happen to know one of the agents for Zoomtak and recently got one of the boxes to try out and I must say it is pretty impressive. The retail price on this box is around €120.00 which isn’t too bad although their are cheaper android tv boxes on the market.

It is very similar to the Apple TV box that is really popular everywhere but in my opinion it is actually more of a media centre than the Apple box. The only thing is that the interface is not as easy to use, well  say easy but  mean it is cumbersome to use more than difficult. In saying that though their are wireless keyboards available which you can use with the box. In my case I have an S3 mini android phone so I downloaded a free keyboard for android TV and that works fine so it is another option for my readers.

So how is this different to the numerous android TV boxes on the market? Well I have been told that Zoomtak run their own servers so there is less chance of them being brought down thus rending your android TV box useless. Zoomtak seem like a big company so this is another plus of using them.
