Looks like this is the end for the Android TV Box. Maybe you can still buy it online if you act fast.
Under the new proposed law, it is still legal to buy android box.

But it is illegal to sell boxes with apps that can be use to access unlicensed copyrighted material. Usually the sellers charge more than $100 for these apps. Many of the 'local' brands fall under this group. Those boxes like ubox, evpad are also affected.

So the risk of losing your $100+ is high if you continue to buy these boxes.

The safer and much cheaper way is to buy plain vanilla android box and install apps yourself. There are plenty of apps available and freely downloadable from internet, some are licensed, some are not. It is not illegal to use those unlicensed apps if it is for your own personal consumption.
