If no customer reviews, is there any specifications I should take note of? I see the price difference from $130 to $170 quite a bit leh.
See shop reputation, how many stars etc? Some of them selling at qoo10 also, but remember its white box not black one. black one i think the specs lower i think. And also better to buy those with 1 year warranty.

Curious. The live app works permanently, or also dependant if the company server works long enough before any authority clamps it?

Who knows?

Maybe you can go inform the relevant authorities about the Unblock TV box's Live TV service.

One of my friend has an Unblock TV box -- and my friend has already used it 2+ (or 3) years.

Up to now everyday, there are still people buying new Unblock TV boxes, either:

(1) First time buyers OR
(2) Those buying a newer version of Unblock TV box to replace an older version.

So how many years or how long does any authority needs to take -- to so called "clamps it"?

For those interested, qoo10 seller ziming global is running an auction for unblock gen 3 box. Auction type is instant draw which means you pay a fixed price of $129 if you apply and win one of the slots. I won one of the slots but contemplating whether to complete the purchase. Have prior experience buying from this seller and they are not very trustworthy. They claim their stock is the newer gen 3 box with built-in bluetooth but they are offering only 6 months warranty instead of the usual 1 year for authorised local resellers. Potential buyers do take note and decide accordingly.

I bought this $129 unblock gen 3 ubox from sls #03-18 through qoo10, they said software was not installed, you have to open the UB market to install yourself, if you get them install, they charge another $30.

I have installed all the apps in UB market and the ubox is working fine.

Hey, do you have the direct link to Qoo10 for this? I look thru Qoo10, all selling at 178$-188$

Is it not difficult to install the ubtv, just install all the apps in UBmarket.
No password needed.

Ended up pulling the trigger and getting myself 1 set of ubox gen3 from the qoo10 auction. Abit of a impulse buy as i already own a xiaomi tv box. To my disappointment, the ubox while supporting 4k resolution and some form of 4k video playback, is not able to hardware decode 10bit video files at all. This means i have to keep my xiaomi box and use both concurrently, ubox for its live tv app and xiaomi box for playing of multimedia files. Overall, the ubox is sluggish in use compared to my xiaomi box(1gb ram vs 2gb ram, 32bit soc vs 64bit soc). Also, for whatever unknown reasons, the ubox refuses to recognize or read 2 out of 4 external harddisks i tested on it. Lastly, the ubox remote is a total pain in the butt to use and luckily i have my own airmouse which saved me a lot of pain and hassle. Overall, i say buy the ubox, if only for the built-in live tv and streaming apps. Do not buy it if you want a box which can also double-up as a strong multimedia playback device.
