Caavo is a Box That Aims to Merge All Your TV Streaming Boxes and Services


The Caavo TV box was announced last week. It’s not exactly a streaming box, but rather a universal control system for every other streaming box you might have. You can plug in an Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV stick, or your regular cable box, and then simply ask for content. The Caavo will figure out what device has that content, and then play it on your TV.

What is Caavo?

Caavo is a new media company that is blending home entertainment. Caavo brings together all your devices, services and control by connecting pay TV, streaming, and gaming. They work together smoothly, making it easy to find and play all your favorite TV.

What will Caavo do?

The aim of Caavo is to make it easy for you to watch the stuff you want with minimal fuss. With endless number of new TV shows and movies to watch, spread across multiple services like Netflix, Amazon, and HBO Go and living-room gadgets such as cable boxes and game consoles, just watching the next episode of a show you want can be a real task. Caavo is expensive, but the way it simplifies the process can seem almost magical.

A sleek box.

The box is as sleek as any AV device around. It comes with a bunch of HDMI ports as well as other connections like USB and Ethernet. All this is housed in a low-profile wood case. There are other finishes available. The other part of the package is a universal remote with a select few keys on the face and a matching wood back.
