You got tricked into buying box from conman.

There are many conman selling tv boxes. They operate in this way: get cheap $30 boxes, install some free software download from internet, then sell them at $100-$200. Some even print a logo on the box, of course they pass the cost to you.

If you buy the same box with only android os at $30 and install apps yourself, it won't "just stop working at the next day".

Actually there is nothing special about android box, you can view it as an android phone, or android tablet, except that it has no screen, and have to use your tv to see the picture.
That's right. I've learnt a valuable lesson from that stupid box and have become better ever since.

I do find Starhub's offering quite worth it because I really had no time trying to find an Android box that ticks all the boxes (or most of it). Besides, a good one will be about $70~$80 and it doesn't come with subscription.

In fact, there's one seller right at Raffles Place MRT selling those useless box; so many people fell for it.
