Unblock TV (UBTV)

Any one using UBTV?
Will it lag while watching?
Does it have old movies and US/TVB series for streaming?

I saw the box on Qoo10, there have different prices like S$288 and even S$400, but some in ebay and amazon are selling like less than S$200.... I wonder what are the differences.. it's very confusing.
The seller in Qoo10 claimed that their UB box are different from those China box...bla bla bla.... but in picture there all looks identical...

Anyone can advise on this?

Thanks.

I personally dont own the box but i can tell you that what the sellers on qoo10 and ebay/aliexpress selling are one and the same thing. Essentially you just have to keep a lookout that you are getting a gen2 box which has better specifications. Now as to why there is such a hugh price difference, thats because the seller on qoo10(which runs a shop at clementi mall) is trying to chop carrot head of gullible buyers by charging $400 for something that can be bought for half the price elsewhere(e.g. Shopee). Regardless where you buy the box from, it should all work the same so dont get suckered by sellers who tell you that their unblock box come with special additional apps/functions blah blah blah.

Add: If you are interested, search aliexpress and there is one particular vendor selling the gen2 box for USD$110 + USD$10 shipping through china post. I think this is the best price you can find in aliexpress.

UBT has their own official website. If the website has no such model as gen3, would it make sense that resellers are able to get their hands on said model?

Regardless of $200 or $400, if u are really watching the channels , the costs will be amortized back easily.
UB is the next best box after Maige. Although it is not as smooth and sometimes lag.

Will UBTV end up like Maige TV?
How long before the servers get closed down like many of the Android TV boxes?

I'm not sure you even know what you are talking about. Maige went kaput, the box becomes an expensive paper-weight. Even if one day UB closes down, you can still use the box like any normal android tv box. When a sub based iptv closes down, it doesnt mean the end of the world for your android box. No one can guarantee you that the service will last forever. Besides, you only pay a 1 time fee for the ubox. If you dont like the risk of the service potentially getting shut down in the future, then you probably should just stick to those free china iptv or streaming apps.

Now the listing has changed to timed sale which restricts the usage of discount coupons. If you have bought it yesterday, you could have used discount coupons to bring the price down to $127. But $148 is still an ok price considering some individual sellers on carousell and shopee are selling the box at $200 and above.

Unblock is just the company name. I believe for those apps which are geo-locked, it will still remain geo-locked unless you use a vpn service.

Basically this is a sub-$50 box with UBTV installed. So you are paying $100 for the UBTV app.

It is an OK deal if UBTV is working well and can last for 2-3 years.
