What is the OWNTVBox?
OWNTVBox is an all-in-one streaming device unlike others on the market that it turns any TV into a Smart streaming device. Combining the essence of an easy to use menu (Very easy to use if you’re a non-technical person) with an unlimited amount of content to watch delivered to your home with no monthly fees. With OWNTVBox, if you can think of a video that has been made it is there.
What content is available on the OWNTVBox?
With OWNTVBox, you get access to virtually every TV show and movie ever made from the 70’s through today. You also get live sporting events, news, streaming music, adult content, music, fitness programs, language learning and 1000’s of apps like Skype, Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Pandora and a web browser. If you are paying a subscription you will find that you have no need for it.
What Networks are available on the OWNTVBox?
OWNTVBox works differently than your normal Cable/Satellite does. Instead of searching for networks or channels that your shows are on, all you need to do is just type in the name of the movie or show you want to play and and it will just come up. The need for remembering channels or networks are over. Just Search, Click & Stream!
Are there commercials?
No, the programming on the OWNTVBox is commercial free. If you’re watching movies or shows, you will not see any commercials. If you’re watching live sports, the commercials will be blacked out but you will not be able to fast forward because it is actually live.
Can I watch the news?
Absolutely. Most major network news is available on the OWNTVBox. The OWNTVBox includes a plethora of news stations including, but not limited to: CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, Al Jazeera, BBC, RT, CNN International, FOX, HLN, Bloomberg, CNBC, ESPN, Fox Business and Sky – more news networks than any other medium in existence and all for free. OWNTVBox does NOT include local news channels because of the thousands of channels that would be needed to have everyone’s local channel on the box.
Can I cancel my cable?
This is entirely up to the discretion of the user. From our feedback, we estimate that 50% of people cancel their cable subscriptions entirely and 50% downgrade to basic programming due to their cable contracts. We do recommend keeping a basic cable package just in case your internet goes down because you won’t be able to access OWNTVBox without Internet service.
Do I need one per television?
Yes, but since the device literally fits in the palm of your hand, you can easily Plug & Play to any TV you want to use it with. It’s as easy as hooking up only 2 cords, 1 HDMI & 1 Power cord (All Included with purchase) Many of our customers even travel with their OWNTVBoxes since all you need is an internet connection.
How is the OWNTVBox different than the Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV?
The Roku, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV Pay to Play devices with limited content which means we’re still stuck paying rental fees or purchase fees to view content that isn’t free. OWNTVBox has NO monthly fees and has no limits to what you can watch which allows access to virtually any Movie and TV Show from the 70’s through today. The Roku and AppleTV simply don’t have the media, hardware or software capabilities of the OWNTVBox and therefore are incapable of providing as much content and as much of an experience as the OWNTVBox.
How are you different than a Kodi/XBMC Box?
We are not a Kodi Box, we use our own app “OWN” which allows customers to always stay up to date with changes through our cloud based updater. We work very similar to a Kodi/XBMC Box in which you can watch any content you want but we have designed a much simpler user interface for everyone to use which means you don’t have to be a technical genius to work it. The main difference with our software is the way we keep our customers updated with the changes that constantly occur. With Kodi, customers will always be outdated within a month unless you’re a technical person and are willing to spend time programming and reading about the changes that occur daily. OWNTVBox does all that for you leaving you free time to do other things, besides chores.
Is all of this legal?
Yes. Absolutely. The OWNTVBox is 100% Legal. The OWNTVBox uses third party programs written externally by programmers and developers. Our custom software allows you to view all your movies and shows without hosting, downloading or uploading the content which is what makes streaming content legal. There are others that their box only streams content, but in actuality downloads sections of content while streaming which is the difference between legal and illegal streaming.
Does the OWNTVBox have Hulu and Netflix?
Since OWNTVBox turns your TV into a SMART TV, you can absolutely download any application you want including NETFLIX or HULU, however most people cancel their Netflix and Hulu subscriptions because all the content available on Netflix and Hulu is available on the OWNTVBox plus so much more for FREE
Will it work for my relatives working overseas?
The OWNTVBox will work ANYWHERE there is an internet connection!
Is it easy? Do I need to be tech savvy?

The system self updates, self calibrates and fixes are sent directly to the OWNTVBox. We also send you a easy to follow Quick Start Guide to help guide you navigate the software. The OWNTVBox is so easy to use, even kids can use it.
