Would you like to watch your favourite movies and TV shows while on holidays?

It is easy if you do your preparation and follow these steps.

  • Pack your android box, power cable, electrical converter, remote control and Ethernet cable.
    Find out what internet is available in your room abroad.
    You then have 3 options to connect your android to the internet while on holiday

 1. Broadband Connect

Just plug everything in. If you have a router connect the android box to the router via Ethernet cable. Of course, connect the TV via HDMI cable and change source with TV remote control to HDMI 1 or 2 etc.

Holiday confirmation : Feb 2017 Puerto Rico, Gran Canaria we had 15 Mb broadband in our Airbnb apartment and the V Plus box worked perfectly.

 2. Wifi Connect

Connect the android box to the TV as above. Change settings/network to Wifi and the box will detect the available Wifi. You need to enter the password accurately of course.

3. Purchase a SIM and Hot Spot Connect (if no Broadband or Wifi available)

  • Unlock Your Smartphone
    • If your holiday apartment or hotel does not offer acceptable Broadband or Wifi then all is not lost if you have an unlocked smartphone.
    • If you don’t before you travel request your unlock code from your network provider Three/Vodafone etc. This unlock code will enable you to insert a sim card from the country you are visiting into your phone.
    • This will change your mobile number give you access to a mobile data allowance that you purchase with a local SIM card.
  • Purchase a local sim card with a large data allowance e.g. 10 gig+.
    • We have successfully used Simyo in Spain who provide 10gig for 45 euros.
    • Insert the SIM card purchased into your phone. Plan for 10 gig to last a week.
  • Setup a hotspot on an Android Phone
    • Go to Settings, Tethering/Hotspot , swipe on Hotspot mode
    • Note the password given for entry to your Android Box.
  • Connect your hotspot wifi to your android box and you are ready to view movies and TV.
    • HD Movies and TV shows are about 500Mb per hours viewing. So 10gig will give you about 20 hours viewing.
    • Don’t do too much browsing on Android and make sure to switch off the hotspot when you are not viewing TV.
    • Now you can keep a close eye on Trump while you are on holidays
