MAC (Media Access Control) address is the unique address that you can find on every smart device. The primary use of the MAC address is to verify the physical address of your device. MAC address consists of six sets of characters and each character is separated by colons. The main difference between IP address and a MAC address is that a MAC address identifies the physical existence of a device, whereas the IP address finds the network connection for the device. Knowing the MAC address of your Android TV will help you in situations like warranty claims, troubleshooting the TV, and more.
