I bought this $129 unblock gen 3 ubox from sls #03-18 through qoo10, they said software was not installed, you have to open the UB market to install yourself, if you get them install, they charge another $30.

I have installed all the apps in UB market and the ubox is working fine.
LOL $30 charge from the shop when all it takes is just literally 5-6 button clicks from turning on the box to installing the ub market and apps. So good to earn ar. Anyway $129 is really far and away the cheapest price you can find anywhere for a gen3 box. Unblock themselves have controlled the price at $178 and above for their authorized resellers and i have seen some chop head neighbourhood shops selling at $200+ a set.

Any recommendation on Korean Drama with eng subtitles?
On my TV box, I use a browser & go to any of the following sites:

(1) Box Asian -- http://boxasian.com/
(2) DramaCool -- http://dramacools.io/
(3) Drama Nice -- http://dramanices.com/
(4) Drama4U -- http://www.drama4u.org/
(5) HDFree -- http://hdfree.se/
(6) ICDrama -- http://icdrama.se/
(7) KissAsian -- http://kissasian.com/
(8) MyAsianTV -- http://myasiantv.se/
(9) NewAsianTV -- http://newasiantv.me/
(10) Viki -- https://www.viki.com/
(11) WatchMe -- http://watchme.asia/
(12) XMovies8 -- https://xmovies8.ru/country/south-korea

Plus many more sites !! (too many to list here)

Most above sites also have dramas from various other countries & also have movies (not just have Korean drama)

If a drama I want to watch can't be found in one particular Web site, I'll go to a 2nd (or 3rd) Web site to search & watch.

Of course you can go to the above sites to watch Korean drama either on your computer or on your TV box.

On computer, to visit any Web site, we use a browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome etc.)
-- on computer, I also use ad-blockers in browsers to filter out ads when accessing above drama Web sites.

Same on TV box, you just need a browser to go to any of above sites to watch drama -- most browsers will work.

Personally, I use a very (small size) simple browser app that you can get from Google Playstore:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...v.nakedbrowser

Above browser app is only 120KB in size !! (yes, 120KB)

You may need to plug-in a mouse (or air mouse) to the TV box to make it (much) easier to use browser on the TV box to visit Web sites.

This small browser app is what I use on my TV box -- to allow me to watch (endless) various dramas/movies from most of the above listed sites.

I don't depend on apps like Viu to watch Korean drama.

Hope the above helps.

The other way is to use apps, rss player and rss media reader are good, these apps grab the shows from the above sites.

rss player
https://www.facebook.com/groups/newt...9181077763432/

rss media reader
https://www.facebook.com/groups/newt...6409470707257/

need to key in a couple of urls during setup, read the posts and the comments for the instructions.

$129 (+4.50 deliv) export set with 6mos warranty is not bad at all. Other seller is at $149 (free deliv) with 1year warranty. I guess the difference ($15.5) caters for the remaining 6mos warranty.

From what i understand, and i am not sure how accurate this is, the so called 1 year authorized reseller warranty entails first 6 months go back to seller for exchange, while the last 6 months seller help you send back to unblock for servicing. The set sold by ziming global is actually so called "local stock" with the singapore sticker on the box. My guess is ziming global are not one of the official unblock recognized resellers in singapore but they managed to somehow get hands on local stock for sale. And because they are not official reseller, they are only able to provide 6 months shop warranty.

You are not being clear. You mean update to the box or update for app? As far as i know, there are no current updates to the box. As to updates to apps, apart from ub's own proprietary apps, all other app updates are pushed out by the app creator themselves, not unblock. As these are cracked versions of the apps, better to not update them when prompted. If anything, just uninstall and reinstall the apps from ub market if they fail to work anymore after updating.

I just upgraded my TV app. No problem.

You may wish to power off your box, and power on again.

Ubox is basically an android box with their own proprietary live tv and streaming apps. You cant install these apps onto other boxes as they only work with the ubox. Price of the box is strictly controlled by unblock but you can find some sellers out there who are selling below the price set by unblock. Refer to the link posted previously for the qoo10 auction where you pay $129 for a gen 3 bt. Not sure where you can try the box but you can refer to youtube review videos to have a look at the ubtv app.

I saw the auction, never use auction before, can we just pay 129 to buy it or must wait for auction end? or we can walk in their shop in SLS to buy it directly?
BTW, how do they control the UBTV? just use MAC address?
or some kind of series number?
