How Australia has taken to the Android Box

It is funny how as an outsider you can see the little changes that takes a country. There are many Irish who move to Australia as the Irish have access to a 1 year visa which can be gotten by any Irish citizen. Thousands of Irish move each year to Australia for a taste of the sun and the great outdoor lifestyle and with them they bring many good business ideas. Irish people are well known to be TV addicts, perhaps due to the cold climate so they are forced indoors for several months of the year. When coming to Australia John Doyle noticed that not many people had heard of an Android TV box and decided to start selling them here on his Facebook page. Word started to spread about these boxes and soon he was drowning in orders.

From there he decided to expand the range of android boxes he had and to even open his own website at Android TV Australia where he ships the boxes nationwide with Australia Post. As the android boxes became more well known his business grew and now he lives full time in Australia after only thinking he would go there for a year.

It is a great example of someone moving to another country and seeing an opportunity to setup a business with an idea that is very popular back home. There are many of these stories and now the android box is very popular in Australia as it is in Ireland.

Years ago before the internet it used to be people visiting America to pick up tips and business ideas and bring them back to Europe but as the internet developed and the world became more like America these opportunities seem to be few and far between. So keep an eye out next time your on holidays..it could pay off!
