Ebox T8 V Octa-core Android TV Boxes Giveaway

Entertainmentbox.com has contacted me asking whether I’d be interested in hosting a giveaway for two Ebox T8 V TV boxes with S77 Pro air mouse on CNX Software, and I thought it was a good idea, so here we are. EBox T8 V is an Amlogic S912 TV box running Android 6.0 with some pre-installed apps specifically geared towards to UK market like BBC iPlayer, and FilmOn, as well as a 2.5″ SATA bay. It also comes with IPVanish app which I successfully tried to watch UK programs, and I had overall a positive experience with the device as I reported in Ebox T8 V review, with the main problems being the lack of audio license and support for HDMI pass-through.

The 21.5x15mm module is based on ESP32-DOWNQ6 processor with 32 Mbit (4MB) of flash, a chip antenna, and a u.FL connector. The module is apparently made by eBox, and also used in Widora board with […]
