KATA Philippines launches their own tv and media box–the Kata Box (SRP PHP2999)

Kata is now jumping to digital entertainment and also gaming, this September they unveiled their latest product that is perfect for those who love to watch digital content and also play games from mobile platforms.

Kata Box is the new product that will target not only the digital content fans, but also mobile phone fans who frequents to visit Youtube and other video channels to watch their favorite video content, tv series of movies.
The Kata Box comes in with a a remote control, wireless keyboard and gaming controller (that looks like an XBOX controller haha)

For video watching – you need to log to your Youtube, and to access other video channels like Netflix, you need to activate first your Mega VPN account to use foreign IP to access Netflix and other video content apps.

For gaming – you can use the remote controller, keyboard or game pad to control the games, you can also use a mouse for navigating and also control the game. (it’s a big hard but there are games that fit for TV box gaming)

If you have a LCD tv --- you can now convert your TV into a smart TV with internet, by using the Kata Box, you just upgraded from an ordinary TV into a Smart TV.

Take note that you need a high speed internet in order to enjoy fast streaming of videos, I guess beyond 2mbps speed is enough for a smooth video streaming.

I will post a detailed review soon. After a series of test with the Kata Box
