Thanks. Most likely the adapter provided is a multi 100-240v adapter. Will consider getting it.

Does it stream other media (pictures/videos) from own collection as well? Eg network drive? Or can install an app for this purpose?
Yes. U can install apps to mirror pic to the tv.

I meant directly playing from fire TV. Not mirroring from a fire tablet.

Apple tv no membership fees. Every program have to pay.

Amazon fire tv have prime membership which offer free move, tv etc which makes the box more useful..

My Apple tv now major job is to mirror ios devices instead of watching program

Can fire tv does this in here (sg)?
  1. Youtube
  2. Play games (minecraft, etc)
  3. PLEX (the most important of all things)
  4. web browsing
  5. stream my phone and pc screen like apple tv

BUT, I don't want to use VPN/DNS change every time. So, maybe just use VPN when installing application and setup, after that disconnect and use normal connection.

I don't have any US CC, can buy apps using local CC?

Can update the apps afterwards? and can be used offline (no internet available, like only using PLEX)

UPDATE: PLEX is not free at all, can buy the apps using local CC?
And is the game controller ($40) worth it for the game collection? It is quite expensive for me though... (although you got $10 for use in apps and games, so $30 for the controller)
