I can not even download the app. I just wait.
You have to download from the website and then use USB drive to install.

Click “Please click to download Android TV apk”.

After everyone downloaded this app and start using it, many more people will sure cut cord. Starhub finished.

Not yet finished but TVB on big screen is one exclusive content for StarHub previously before this new development.

If you only need VOD, I think there are now pretty good choices in Singapore, with Toggle, StarHub Go, SingTel Cast, Netflix, HBO Go, TVB Anywhere+, Viu, Amazon Prime Video, Hooq, Fox+, Catchplay On Demand, etc, as well as the offering from Apple and Google.

If you need live TV, then it is still limited in Singapore. Toggle, SingTel Cast and StarHub Go only have limited choices for live TV, compared to SingTel TV and StarHub Fibre TV.

Thanks for the reply!

The device is Minix NEO X8H Plus.
I also tried to download the mobile app version and was told "This app is not compatible with your device".
Try to upgrade the FW to Android 5 from official website.

https://theminixforum.com/index.php?...-x8-h-plus.39/

Still the box is too old and running on a very old CPU, better buy a new box.

and of course there are some other paid iptv apps like myiptv and hao hd which you can install on any android box.

Not totally finished but some how finished as there are many app available. Some free streaming sites also have such video streaming but some is 720p only.

These are paid IPTV packages made from curated pirate streams. They may stop working any time when the rights holders raise complaints to the court.

I understand why people choose to go with this type of IPTV packages but I will not recommend them.

Ref: feedback of HaoHD is not good and it is expensive.

Ref:
Not recommend because it may stop working. But many shops still selling. Actually Starhub should continue to offer second pass free with first pass sign up and make it as default standard offer.

There are many bad feedbacks for these paid IPTV packages, like the sellers run road, the code does not work, apps got blocked, etc.

Most of them do not have a proper website and proper support channels. How can that be reliable?
