Thank you for your excellent insight.

I have no hesitation in paying for the legal TV services.

All I want is to watch these two TV news channels which were available previously from my 'infinite' TV box. They are MSNBC and CNN USA , not CNN international which I can get from my existing StarHub TV subscription.

I have check StarHubGo that you mentioned but they don't have these two channels. Incidentally the 'infinite' TV box have 1000 channels compared to 50 from StarHubGo.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.


Death for the fully loaded box probably and death for those unofficial paid IPTV services which anyway are not worth buying in the first place.

Buy good quality box like Mi Box S (S$70-90) or Nvidia Shield TV. Or cheaper box like Tanix TX3 Mini or Tanix TX3 Max if your budget is about S$40- S$50 if you do not need Netflix.

If you worry about unofficial streaming, use official legal apps then like Toggle, TVB Anywhere, Starhub Go, Netflix, Viu, Apple Music, Spotify, etc. Note: you may need to use your mobile and the built-in Chromecast function for some of this apps for Mi Box S and Nvidia Shield TV.

I am paying for VIP access to QQ Music, Xiami Music and Youku for my Chinese Entertainment needs on top of SingTel TV. The three VIP access cost me RMB208 (S$42) this year which is very reasonable price to pay.

For English entertainment, I see quite some people here use paid Netflix with paid VPN (for US Netflix).
