TV Box

WeTek OpenELEC Box is a TV Box dedicated to Kodi with OpenELEC pre-installed


OpenELEC is a Linux-based operating system designed to basically run one app: the Kodi media center. You can install OpenELEC on a PC to turn your computer into a multimedia device with a full-screen user interface for watching movies, streaming online video, listening to music, and performing other tasks.

Now the folks behind OpeneELEC have teamed up with hardware maker WeTek to launch the OpenELEC Box. It’s a limited-edition TV box that comes with OpenELEC pre-installed (plus it has the OpenELEC logo on the box).
