None of the abv. The last thing you want to do is to pay a couple hundred bucks for these type of boxes just for watching specific stuff. I have said it before multiple times. EPL matches on wkends are totally unwatchable on ubox. Either the channels dont load at all or they load but rebuffer every 5-6 seconds. Another point is that the channel picture quality are very poor. There are free apps out there that stream matches with better picture quality and stability. You are better off getting a cheap android box and install these free to use apps but i wont go into specifics here.

Ubox is mainly a chinese/asia programme-centric box for foreign chinese. No live US TV it.

If he is talking about common US cable tv channels like HBO, Nat Geo, History, Discovery etc, yes unblock and evpad have it. But sources are mainly from Taiwan, Middle East or South Asia cable operators so programming and subs may differ. Evpad has a dedicated app for North American channels so some less common channels might be found there.

Are you guys still using UBOX? I give up after 5 months trial and go back to cable as my son always complains that education channel is offline very often and waste his precise TV time.
BTW UBVOD is very laggy these few months and not watchable, do you face this problem?

You should had tried a trial of a paid service like Deke before u give it up. 2 months of subscription with cable can pay for a year sub with them.

There are other services at the other iptv thread which are cheaper but the PQ is a little lower if you are okay.

Does Deke provide program schedule like StarHub? any recording service?

I am OK with UB live TV as I can get TV program from TW website, but my son does not like it and he likes to record those documentual from H2 and watch again and again, I need History , H2, Discovery, TLC etc. only few channel only.
