SDMC DV8219-LTE Android TV Box Comes with a Built-in 4G LTE Modem

Most users connect their TV boxes to the Internet through WiFi or Ethernet, but in some specific use case, such as digital signage in mass transport or in remote locations, it might be useful to get access to cellular networks. We’ve seen a few Android TV boxes with a built-in 3G modem in the past including CS918S and MBX-3G, but the former is based on the rather old Allwinner A31s processor, and the latter did not raise enough found on Indiegogo. But there’s nothing new, as SDMC DV8219-LTE is a more recent TV box powered by Amlogic S905X processor and running Android 6.0, equipped with a 4G LTE modem.

Obviously for the Chinese market, and Europe only 850/2100 3g and LTE is TD LTE only.

@cnx.. thank you for featuring this though as now i know it’s possible in the future

who would use a 4g with these boxes when mobile internet is so expensive.

I would where in the USA you can get unlimited data to your device that hold the sim card. T mobile and their mvno plans would be ideal if the bands supported it.

Unlimited 4G LTE is only about $20USB/month in Taiwan, and they don’t restrict tethering. On the other hand, cable costs over $100USD just for the installation fee, and monthly charges are also higher. So there is definitely a market. Also, consider that there are many places in the world where they never got around to installing the wires that this sort of technology replaces. So, it can also save infrastructure costs.

Unlimited LTE in Romania (50GB/month, after that speed is 128kbps) is at… 4euro/month.

I am seeing that this box works on GSM. I would like to try 1 of these but it must work on 850/1900 band. Does it work on that band or do you have a model that can?

4G/LTE is super cheap in India, We have deployed Digital Signage Players with Android TV box + 3G/4G USB Dongle it worked very well,

We had compatibility issues, not many 4G/LTE USB dongles were supported in Android TV boxes,

This is good idea to integrate 4G /LTE into TV box, We will use them in the Digital Signage application, We have sourced products from SDMC in past and worked well.

The only problem I face with these TV boxes for commercial applications is that they become obsolete soon,
