Freedombox is our next-generation all-in-one Android (Kit-Kat) entertainment system that
can be used as a game console, communication hub, a PC alternative and a media player and
streamer that delivers to your TV a high quality up-to 1080p HD video playback and a direct
access to the best movies and TV shows and programs available on the internet.
We recommend you to use Airdroid. Open the application on your console, press start, you should see a web address.
now go to your PC or tablet and navigate to the address shown on the airdroid application on tv..confirm the connection and you
are good to go.
Your device comes built in with native support for Wi-Fi Display which allows you to mirror the content from your Android Smartphone
or Tablet on to your TV screen. So, simultaneously the movie you are watching on your Android Tablet will appear on your TV screen,
playing in real-time! The same works with games. Why play Angry Birds on your Smartphone when you can let the whole family join
in and have the game simultaneously appear on the TV screen. Unfortunately, Wi-Fi Display is not compatible with Samsung and Sony
devices. Please see link for quick 'How To Guide' for Wi-Fi Display: http://blog.laptopmag.com/miracast-android-mini-pc.
AirPin PRO is a great application for all Apple iOS customers using our media hubs. It enables the AirPlay feature on iOS to be

No need to install anything as long as the Freedombox and iOS device are on the same Wi-Fi connection then you can use
immediately. Simply activate the AirPlay feature on your iOS device when playing media content. For more information regarding
