1. Can watch almost all the native MI videos (except those VIP videos) by changing the DNS settings; Needs no VPN
2. One will need a digital box to watch local digital TV
3. Can't use Comcast but can use Wukong remote control as alternative. should be able to use handphone to cast Netflix video to Mi TV sets. https://tinyurl.com/y9bt55h7
Sir, do you know if it is possible to airplay iphone to xiaomi tv? I can detect xiaomi tv on my iphone but when airplay over, the screen on the tv does not switch over

Prouter is quite reliable. It is one of the forwarders recommended by TaoBao as alternative. Usually, these forwarder's insurance will include for damaged but not for the working functionality of the goods. Pay about RMB100 extra for the crate as a protection. one will also have to pay GST. After weighing pros and cons, I got xiaomi from a local agent. Recently, the xiaomi broke down and the local agent sent for repair.. save a lot of trouble.
can share the xiaomi local agent? intend to get a MiTV soon as my current TV is going to spoilt soon.

This one can cast xiaomi programs from iphone to TV. download the apps from Apps store

This one can also cast video and picture to TV. It has its own program.. can also upload and play homemade or recorded videos to TV. Just download apps from Apps store using "Wukong remote"

Meaning ship the whole tv to China? Quite tedious.

Thanks for the answers. So confirm that Chromecast Ultra can't be used to stream 4K Netflix or YouTube videos?

Xiaomi 32" TV4A is a smart TV except it is just ordinary HD quality and not 4K quality.. good enough for normal viewing. No set top required except for local digital TV

The reason why we get a set top box is for local tv.
So buyers should check this before you commit.

Can install Cloud TV APK and use it to receive many TV channels all over the World including those in Singapore without using any setup box. A VPN is an added tool to unlock channels that has geographical locks..If required, one can subscribe to premium channels for a small fee..can try out for a day free of charge before purchasing
