Yes as long as the TV has an HDMI port.

Box to recommend: Google Chromecast 2020 (faster and better than Mi Box S but a bit more expensive) or Mi Box S, both are certified to run Netflix at 720p/1080p/4K.

For MediaCorp FTA channels, yes it is easier to buy a DVB-T2 tuner Box plus the antenna. However, you can also cast to TV using meWatch app from the mobile phone if you do not watch them often, if you buy boxes like Chromecast 2020 or Mi Box S.

Hi,

Did a quick search.
Google Chromecast v3 is SGD 59
Mi Box S is SGD 71

But you mentioned that ChromeCast will be more ex. Am i looking at the correct item?

I signed out of my google account for the UBox S (from the web internet on another device).

When I tried to access the Google Play Store on UBox S, it says "Authentication is required. You need to sign into your Google account". I couldn't find a way to log in at the Play Store app, or from the main "Settings" menu.

Does anyone know how I can sign into the Google account on the Ubox?

Chromecast with Google TV (Chromecast 2020) is much better than Chromecast V3 or Chromecast Ultra.

It is not officially available in Singapore but there are shops selling. The price in US is only US$49 but it will be more expensive in Singapore.

Discussion thread of Chromecast 2020.

Take note 聚体育is the TV version of PP Sports. PP Sports has lost the right to EPL. Tencent Sports has taken over.

https://www.insidesport.co/premier-l...tract-default/
******
The English Premier League is suing its former Chinese media-rights partner PP Sports for $215.3 million for not paying the full cost of the previous broadcast. As early as September 3rd, the Premier League and PP Sports, the Chinese broadcaster, respectively announced the termination of their partnership.
...
On September 17th, shortly after the Premier League’s contract with PP Sports was dissolved, the Premier League announced a partnership agreement with Tencent Sports. Tencent Sports will broadcast the remaining 372 Premier League games for the rest of the new season, more than half of which will be broadcast free of charge, with other matches to be offered through Tencent Sports’ membership service.

Last time I use new cloud tv on a box. Then it say cannot connect to server.

On a other box it can connect but there is a google service error keep popping up once the box is opened

Anyone know where to download the new cloud software? I tried lots and doesn't work. Or any other alternative that is as good as new cloud?

For Mi Box S:
If you are not paying for Viu Premium, try to sideload the free tablet version. This is not officially supported.

If you are paying for Viu Premium, then you can cast from your mobile phone, this is the official method mentioned by Viu.

Why my Evpad need to restart or reconnect WiFi to see some channels?

When I on it, some channels gave me black screen, will be watchable only after I restart the box or reconnect wifi

look for a budget tv stick for my parent's old TV to watch youtube.

for the price range, is XIaomi TV Stick the best choice now?

or any other better choice to recommend?
