Hi all, just got an international box when I was in HK late Dec. Bought the unit at the Xiaomi Store for HKD499. I am pretty new to all this, so wondering what good apps to install for live TV and streaming.

I have Kodi installed (1Channel and Phoenix add-on) but also wondering what other good add-ons to instal as well.

Thanks in advance!

I just got myself a Mi Box 3c, and it comes with the china interface. I am fine with it but a lot of the apps are either VIP only which means I have to pay, or that the streaming website says its not available in my location. Is there any way to bypass this? Or I should be installing better apps to view tv shows and movies? Any chance for me to update it to the US version?

I want to get a box to get all the national geographic, history, discovery, BBC Earth, Animal Planet, travel, HGTV channels in HD...

Which box or software can I get? And are they on-demand or have specific time to watch (like cable TV)?

Sorry very new to this!

I have a Mi Box 2 that can use USB drive and microSD card. The dealer installed Kodi and many other apps on my microSD card.

Recently i got a Mi Box 3 but this one only accepts USB drive, no microSD card slot.

I transferred the apps in my microSD card to a USB drive and slotted it into my Mi Box 3. I can read the contents in the USB drive. However, I can't see the apps on TV.

Can anyone help please?

The answer is obvious.
You need to re-install the apk from your Mi Box 3.
Dun think there is any other way out of it.
