Android TV: Is It Worth It?

Android TV: Is It Worth It?

The big technology to look at these days is the many different kinds of TV streaming services available to you, and it can be tough to figure out which one is the best. Android TV is a popular form of getting more channels and entertainment options in your home, and there’s plenty of reasons why. I’m going to talk about what Android TV offers, as well as why you should consider making use of it. Personally, I have it in my home – I couldn’t be happier with the sheer amount of options I have when it comes to watching TV. It’s not for everybody, though! That’s why I felt it was necessary to write this piece.

What Is It?

If you have an Android phone, picture a cable box that is running on the exact same operating system. Android does a great job of providing the user with stellar performance, but that’s not all a potential consumer is looking at; the selection of movies and shows is important as well. Android TV was introduced to the world in 2014, allowing you to interact with your television in a way you never thought possible. It can be built into TV’s, but there’s also an external box format that many people use as well. An Android TV box allows you to implement the Google Play Store to download apps and other services (like Netflix or Hulu) – it even goes as far as allowing you to download games on your television.

Voice search is also implemented, allowing you to look up any sort of video you’d like without raising a finger. This is perfect for not only people who are disabled, but it’s also ideal for those that are just plain lazy (and there’s nothing wrong with that). If you love Netflix and wouldn’t mind having it seamlessly implemented into your television routine, Android TV is the best device to be using.

Is It Expensive?

This is the best part: as compared to many other cable/FiOS providers, it’s relatively cheap. Expenses can build up when you’re using a satellite or cable provider, especially when it comes to watching pay-per-views and shows of that nature. With Android TV, you can pretty much stream with ease from your phone; whether it’s YouTube or the internet, you’ll be able to watch whatever you like. When you take into account that there are so many different apps and other services to use alongside Android TV (and in many cases, free of charge), it’s a deal and a half!

I haven’t had a large cable bill to complain about in months, and I have Android TV to thank for that. If financial stability is something you’re keen on, as it should be for just about all of us, Android TV can cut your current entertainment bill right in half. I mean, that’s not a promise; but it could happen!

Joining the Movement

A lot of people have an Android TV box these days so that just goes to show how convenient it can be for everyday use. Why would so many people use it in their homes if the entertainment value wasn’t there? I was skeptical at first, much like you might be; but after using it for myself, I realized the potential was there. Ever since then, I’ve been using Android TV seamlessly. It seems like regardless of what I want to watch, I can do exactly that with this nifty little invention. Joining the movement could very well be the best thing you’ve ever done!

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

When we were still children, our thoughts seemed to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then, how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power!

We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities.

We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb.

We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits.

And we’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head…

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So, how can we tap into the power of positivity?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are 4 simple yet powerful ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

Just take a look at these 10 Positive Affirmations for Success that will Change your Life.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty.

If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what really is important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

Here’re 60 Things To Be Thankful For In Life that can inspire you.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking.

Instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember:

You are (or will become) what you think you are.

This is reasonable enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
