I totally agree with you.
Specially since I already have fiber broadband from other provider and Starhub "force" me to install additional fiber broadband at home (even though it's free for 2 years) if I want to switch to their FIber TV.
It means more cables, trunking etc in my house which I don't like it.

So, better to terminate their TV service and switch to android tv box as you mentioned above.
Actually Starhub should not stop cable TV as it is so convenient to set up. Not as troublesome as fibre TV. Now caused so much inconvenient.

M1 Broadband & Starhub Fibre TV

Currently I am on M1 Home Broadband & Starhub Cable TV. In order to watch Starhub Cable TV I need to switch from Starhub Cable to Starhub Fibre?
Does that mean I need to terminate all my M1 Broadband Services?

Don't need. Fiber usually allow for 2 ports. U have m1 and Starhub can come to install their fiber.

Same, my cable contract ended early April, so i recontracted on 2nd week of April, their 2 appt, the later second one is late april and contract only commence after 2 appt are completed

And so I have to pay the rental box subscription (payable after end of contract) for 1 month despite signing contract on 2nd week of April

Same... the good thing is that the benefits that were advertised were given to me at the day of sign up

It's just that now the old contract is still running because too many people making too many appointments

Restart every things in order to work. Switch off and on.

I am done! Wooooo.! Tvb on big screen. Goodbye starhub
How is the video quality on big screen for TVB Anywhere+?

The free basic zone has limited video contents and the quality is not that good.

Ref here:

What about the paid subscription (Premium Zone)? Is it up to 720p or even 1080p?
