The E-Box Because Every Other Name is Trademarked

The E-Box Because Every Other Name is Trademarked

Discontinued model. Please see our new line-up

Are you sick and tired of Hollywood and big entertainment undermining your freedom? Hollywood and the entertainment industry as a whole have been threatened by the vast trove of freely distributed content on the internet and they're doing everything they can to undermine those enabling independent producers from having avenues to distribute and profit from content production like they have.

Hollywood has successfully convinced judges around the world that censorship is acceptable even where a tool or site is generic and does not itself promote any infringing uses or content. One Canadian judge even went so far as to say "in a manner that is user-friendly and reliable" in spite of the tools hosted not containing or promoting infringing content. In other words if you develop a program like a web browser that can be used to infringe that is sufficient if it makes it easy to access any content at all really. And Hollywood has even implied web browsers are illegal- just they won't go after them.

For those who would like to make a financial contribution to fighting the abuses of Hollywood consider making a donation to the TVADDON defense fund which is just one victim fighting Hollywood's 100 year attack on freedom. TVADDON is a free software repository for TV ADDONS.

The E-Box is a standard computing device that too can be easily utilized for accessing the internet and video content just like Hollywood doesn't like! The device connects to most TVs up to 4K (note: not all 4K TVs supported, up to 4096x2160).

  • Comes with a Intel Quad-Core Processor J3455 (up to 2.3GHz) sufficient for watching 4k content

  • Expandable- up to 16GB of DDR3L ram

  • Support for most popular and libre (free) Linux distributions

  • Not dependent on binary blobs, or proprietary drivers-firmware at the OS level
