Looks like this is the end for the Android TV Box. Maybe you can still buy it online if you act fast.
No need to hurry, especially not to hurry to buy those Sim Lim Square or Shopping Mall boxes. Also no need to hurry to buy from online either. If you hurry you may get cheated.

In fact I can see the three kiosks at Jurong Point shopping centre kind of business as usual. And if you buy those fully loaded boxes now and you will just be caught in surprise later when the law kicks in and the seller goes out of business.

The proposed law does not ban sellers which sell plain boxes without those pirate streaming apps. The proposed ban also targets sellers and not consumers.

The proposed ban does target those sellers who try to sell plain boxes but provide guide and website links to those pirate stream apps.

BTW previous high court order already provided the power of dynamic blocking. For example it is said Ubox vendor Unblock Tech now changes the server address of the UBTV app and no longer needs the DNS change trick to work around the ISP block, still the rights holder can find the new server address and then add them to the block order.
