SingTel Cast Learning Plus is at S$5.9 per month, not bad for kids. You can take a look.

There are other SingTel Cast packs you can take a look. Now they open quite some packs for non-Singtel customers.

SingTel Cadt app works for Nvidia Shield TV.
Interesting.I AM really out of touch !

why live tv?

it is better to use VOD to watch kids programs and movies. you can select when and what to watch.
This would be Netflix..etc right

Yes. Netflix is one of the TV streaming platforms, mostly of the TV streaming apps provide Video On Demand.

Different streaming subscription options in Singapore are compared here:

Of course there are many other paid or free VOD apps. There are also quite some paid or free live TV options out there.

SingTel Cast and StarHub Go are among the options listed in the website.

I do not have Shield TV. And I only have the free Cast channels (eLe and ChK) on SingTel Cast. Using Mi Box S and there are no issues with the two free channels, either running directly under Mi Box S, or casting from my Huawei P20 Android phone.

I myself use SingTel TV Family Favorite pack, mainly for kids.

I believe the complaints about frame skip with SingTel Cast app is probably more for the Sports Plus pack where the users may have higher requirements and higher expectations (not cheap). There are also complaints about low resolution.

Was initially looking forward to getting the Shield, but the biggest drawback now for me is that it does not support Apple TV+.

Damm...

Can anyone verify that the new Shield Pro supports Atmos on Netflix?

Thinking of buying NS TV Pro. Totally noob with it. Would appreciate advice on the following:

1) How best to buy? US or UK Amazon, Ezbuy etc?

2) If Amazon, wonder if Black Friday in a few hours time will have sales. Do they usually do time sales for NS instead?

3) Besides the plug and slightly more expensive from UK Amazon, are there any other differences?

4) It'll replace my main generic android box for streaming Netflix, Kodi and local files. How good is it to double up as a gaming console for my kids and myself? I read about emulator but it seems is mostly for retro games. What about newer games option? Saw references to GeForce NOW and Steam but totally clueless what are these besides it is streaming? Are they based on subscription or purchase on per game basis?

5) I read the best game controller to use with it is Xbox. Any specific model? Again where best to buy?

TIA!
