Check whether can support ur box. Works on my Sony TV and mibox S
Starhub Go Streaming box is supported as per the device compatibility list of TVB Anywhere+.

It actually runs Android TV OS like Mi Box S, but minus the Netflix certification.

I also installed using USB onto my Mibox S but I keep getting the Pin Error message...

Can someone advise if the following apps can run off Mi Box S:-
1) Toggle
2) Starhub GO
3) Netflix
4) HBO GO

Thanks in advance

No issues with Netflix. It is installed by default. Up to 4K.

HBO Go should be okay as well. Either you can install it on the box or you can cast from phone. (Mi Box S owners to confirm).

You will not be able to install either Toggle or Starhub Go on Mi Box S.

For Starhub Go, you can cast from phone using the built-in Chromecast function of Mi Box S.

For Toggle it is reported by some users to have no problem with Chromecast dongle but has problem with Mi Box Chromecast function.

In Summary only Toggle could be a problem.

Seriously I don't know but for $5.98 per month for premium content, I think reasonable. How much is Starhub charging? At least $8 for old plan

Yah. I am ok with the payment as i am paying a lot more for the Chinese pack. I am only worried that it does not work even after paying. Hence, i am trying to test if this TV apk can work on Xiaomi Mibox S but i have been unsuccessful in pairing. Thus, had to ask you for your solution...
If the only way for the pairing to be successful is to become premium member, it will be an important information for those keen on TVB content...

The issue seems to be specific for the TV version. I will suggest you to check with TVB Singapore.

On the other hand the Android mobile phone version has no such issue, you can use the Android phone version and then screen mirroring to your TV (eg Samsung and LG Smart TV or TV boxes with Miracast support). Not so sure if the quality is okay or not compared to the TV version. You will have to keep the phone on though in this case.

To add on to the wealth of knowledge, there is no issue with iPads too. I am able to access TVB anywhere with decent quality. The only downside is the lack of English subtitles.
I hope the issue with TV box is really due to the need to subscribe to the Premium service.

I have doubts that the TV version is only for Premium subscription members. I think it is rather a bug of their website which is just up for a few days.
