How to set-up an Android-powered Kodi TV box

OWNTVBox connects right to your television, through a standard HDMI cable. The TV Box must also be connected to the internet through Wi-Fi, or an Ethernet cable. Ethernet is better for direct connection. After the connections are made, you’ll get a display on your television screen of all the applications on OWNTVBox. They are shortcuts to the different apps you’ll use on your OWNTVBox. Our android boxes is built on top of the Android system, you can download and use any Android app, right on your television.
We have an application called OWNTVBox Media Center, or OBMC for short. The OWNTVBox Media Center is a lightweight but powerful media center that allows you to stream different types of media from your local storage flash drive, or different online sources. OBMC updates constantly and is the ultimate tool for transforming your television into the only entertainment system you would ever need.
Play video files from your local storage.
If we scroll over to videos and click on files, you’ll have access to any files on a an SD card, hard drive or flash drive you might have connected.
In this case, I have an SD card plugged in with a zip file inside of it. If there were any video files on this SD card, they’d show up and I’d be able to play them right away. But since I don’t have a video file handy, this is where Kodi and the E-Box Media Center shines.
