How to install OptiSigns Player on Android Boxes

There are many cost-effective Android Boxes and sticks on the market, such as Xiaomi boxes, sticks, Onn TV boxes, Mecool, etc.

In general, we recommend using OptiSigns Android Player as it's optimized for OptiSigns app performance and stability.

If you are not in a market where OptiSigns Players are available, we recommend Google Chromecast.

There are many Android boxes on the market and their quality varies, software, and system updates also vary, so please test before you use them. Note that if the manufacturer pushes updates, you may need to test it again in the future.
