If you have been following our Facebook Page you may have seen some teaser pictures of our newest Android TV Boxes.. But today is the day where you learn what we have been developing for the last 6 months, the Skystream Three and Three Plus!

SkyStream Three Plus Android TV Box

This is the first time we have ever released two Android TV Boxes at once. We decided to do this to offer the best streaming experience to fit every streamer.

SkyStream Three

SkyStream Three Streaming Media Player

The SkyStream Three was created to be blazing fast with plenty of storage for the casual streamer. The brand new S905X2 Chip is insanely fast and beats the SkyStream ONE in every benchmark test we threw at it. Pair that with 2GB of RAM and you have a streaming monster with an extremely affordable $69.99 price tag!

As we normally do, we pulled out all of the stops on the SkyStream Three Plus! We paired the lightning fast S905X2 chip with 4, yes 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage to create the fastest Android TV Box on the market. The SkyStream Three Plus is roughly 31% more powerful than the already crazy powerful SkyStream TWO! We worked countless hours keeping all of the raw horsepower of the SkyStream Three at an affordable price of only $99.99!

Skystream Three and Three Plus Operating System

The Skystream Three and Three Plus are both running Android Oreo 8.1. Android 8.1 is an extremely fast and powerful version of Android. But we weren’t happy with just having a great Android operating system. We wanted it faster and optimized for Streaming. So we collaborated with one of the most respected Android firmware developers from the XDA Developers (Android Developers) website to develop a highly polished operating system. We took out all of the bloatware, added system tweaks to speed up the processor and optimized just about everything else. This work increased our benchmark speeds by 10% compared to what the chipset manufacturer promises. Long story short, the Skystream Three and Three Plus are insanely fast and can handle anything you throw at them.

Skystream Three and Three Plus Voice Capabilities (Upgraded airmouse required)

With voice technology becoming so popular lately, we wanted to include this capability into both the Skystream Three and Three Plus. Users will be able to press the voice button on the airmouse remote and say “OK Google, Search for a local restaurant” “OK Google, what is the weather today?” “OK Google, Search Netflix for Stranger Things.” With the Skystream Three, Google is literally a few words away! In fact it's baked into the home screen :)

 Updated UI

We are doing things a little different this time with our home screen. Both the Three and Three Plus will feature a very simply yet very beautiful home screen. We focused on making all of your favorite apps extremely easy to find and click on in a split second. Super easy even for the most technically unsavvy, but beautiful enough for even the most seasoned tech guy to fall in love with!

Internet Connection

SkyStream Three - The SkyStream Three uses the 2.4 Ghz Wifi band which is the strongest over long distances to provide blazing fast speeds even at long ranges. 99% of devices run on 2.4 Ghz and it is pretty much the gold standard. 

The SkyStream Three also has a 100 MBPS Ethernet port which will allow you to stream anything you want from any streaming app!

SkyStream Three Plus - For the SkyStream Three Plus we went all out! The Wi-Fi chip allows you to connect to 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz Wi-Fi signals. We also added a 1,000 Mbps Ethernet port for anyone who has some serious internet speeds.
