Hi all,

I'm new to the tv streaming box genre and would like some advice from u experienced guys here

I'm currently on starhub tv but since I got Netflix (my 4yr old Philips TV came installed with it), my family hardly watches starhub tv. At most a bit of Disney channel and Nickelodeon. I'm thinking of cutting off starhub tv completely but I want to make sure we still have access to local TV. I don't want to get a digital tv receiver.

So I'm thinking of getting a tv streaming box that runs on Android and still have some way of accessing local tv via apps. For example, for Nvidia Shield TV, I can install Toggle to watch local content right? Still can watch local news and national day rally etc?

I also saw that Starhub has their own streaming box. Not sure if I can install android apps on them like Netflix, Toggle or even in the future, Disney+.

Any comments on which way I should go?

Thank you!
it is not necessary to use toggle to watch local tv channels, there are many free 3rd party apps offering the channels.

nvidia shield is the best tv box, using it just to view local channel is a waste. you can do it with a low end android box.
