Can PM me the place to stream for 4k atmos hdr?
Can pay.

Thanks.
Netflix?

Some people use shared account and the price is really cheap if you want to go that route.

I have zero interests to Netflix or 4k myself though.

I have Youku VIP subscription which is mostly up to 1080p HDR only. But 酷喵影视 Youku TV VIP has a bit of 4k contents but maybe that is fake 4k compared to Netflix.

You miss the point here.



Sure, you can run the plex server 24/7 and access all your media files from the internet.

The main reason to use the Nvidia Shield TV is the enhanced audio and video using Dolby Atmos and Vision when playing media through HDMI on a TV. The media can come from Netflix, Youtube and other paid subscriptions and your own stored content. Sure you can install android apps to stream content from questionable sources (even pirated streams) but most likely you’ll find poor quality, unstable video and risk of infection.
poor quality, unstable video?

lol.. 4K Blu-ray quality with DTS 7.1 / ATMOS audio encoding with gigabit bandwidth cloud server streaming with no lag.

may be you live in the cave for many years.

nowadays people don't have to download, streaming is the norm.

free and good servers are everywhere, if you want to watch on mobile phone, don't have to stream from home.

if you are willing to pay for a small fee, you can stream 4k atmos hdr movies .
Wah boss. 41.1gb for a movie?
Phone capacity still 64gb, max storage I get around 20gb.
If I get new phone, also dislike black bars due to resolution ratio.
Somemore for mobile, download > streaming. 2 GB data monthly nia.
I live in cave. Streaming needs good internet connection all times.
Small is how small? Can post here?
Can't be like Netflix monthly billing..... x24 months also quite ex. Can buy Nvidia Shield TV liao.

I am now on netflix, albeit playing it off a LGC9. I am not impressed with the atmos selection on offer, and the effect coming off these titles. The many epic atmos titles like John Wick, Mad Max etc are not available on netflix. I mean, they did an atmos for "The Irishman", where 90% of the show are of few old men talking. I fell asleep watching.

It's no use saying you have atmos content when you are just adding the random movies which doesn't actually need atmos. Hope they will improve the selection in future.

Also I am not sure if adding netflix to NS and then to tv will improve the experience. I will update in a week or two after I have received the NS.

I think you are missing the point. You play a 41gb atmos HDR 4k title on the phone? What kinda effect are you expecting to get?

I think many have mentioned before, the NS is just an equipment to get atmos 4k HDR onto your TV, which coupled with your atmos setup, will give you that theatre experience.

If you have neither a minimum 5.1 home theatre, or won't sit in front of the tv to catch a movie, then the NS TV might not be the best option for you.

Yeah I am currently using the plan with 4 of my pals and dad. Paying annually at $40 for two years already, this might change now due to addition of 7% GST... Was trying to see if there’s another option of streaming.

Anyways bro, how come you’re not interested in Netflix? You and your family mostly consume Chinese Entertainment and Movies?

Kids: YouTube (English), SingTel TV kids channels (English)

Parents in law : Chinese contents only, mainly news and music on mobile phone

Wife: Chinese and Korea drama and movies on the phone, Mandarin music on the phone

Me: English news and documentary (SingTel TV and SingTel Cast), Youku movies (Chinese and a bit of English), Youku dramas (Mandarin/Cantonese only), QQ Music/Xiami Music (old English/Hokkien songs, Cantonese songs and Mandarin songs, ).

So you can say both English and Chinese contents, but no English TV series.

Challenger has Xbox One S 1TB two controller pack or one controller one game bundle on sale at S$299.

This might be a good alternative to NVidia Shield TV Pro 2019.

XBox One S is a capable streaming box with quite some Streaming apps like Netflix, Kodi, Plex, YouTube, etc.

On gaming side it will beats NVidia Shield TV hands down.

PS4 1TB is also on offer at S$369 for the Mega Pack bundle. That is another option as well.
