Theres a lot of talk about new smart TVs and now theres box's that plug into the HDMI port in your tv to turn it into a smart tv. Does anyone have one??

I'm looking into getting one for my TV, and I have all sorts of questions, also I figured I'd place this thread here because I found an ANDROID adapter!!!

It looks cool, but here are my questions (these apply to any adapter/box out there that you people may have) :

1. Can it SOLELY display cable channels? Or do I need a cable provider?

2. Is it Bluetooth capable? I want to hook up a small Bluetooth sound bar to my TV that isn't Bluetooth capable.

3. Can I use a smart phone to control it? I am awful at keeping track of remotes and things like that, I always have my droid maxx in hand so it would be a helpful remote

4. What are some reviews for those that have one?

5. Theres "internet players with google tv" and I only see Pandora , YouTube, and Netflix on them. Do they support their own channels??

Any help would be appreciated!!!

there are many devices that can connect your tv to the internet (netflix, youtube, amazon, hulu plus...) I bought a Roku several years ago(2008) and still use it.

EXOON Power Pro Android TV (http://www.xbmcandroidtv.com/shop/category-layout/android-tv-power-pro-58-2013-11-20-87-detail.html)

1. Can it SOLELY display cable channels? Or do I need a cable provider? no it will not display cable channels, but many shows are available via hulu plus, netflix and other paid apps



2. Is it Bluetooth capable? I want to hook up a small Bluetooth sound bar to my TV that isn't Bluetooth capable. this one doesn't look like it does, could try contact us (http://www.xbmcandroidtv.com/contact-us.html)

I like mine, haven't seen anything with bluetooth, but haven't been looking.

That android device could be really nice, but haven't seen any reviews.
The website didn't say anything about google playstore either.
