These boxes are fine if you use it for grey area streaming apps, spmc( a fork of Kodi for Android) and android games. However, a official googletv box will provide you with 4k YouTube netflix and Chromecast, voice control and a overall better user experience.

Hi Dryteletubby, was hoping to use these boxes to channel surf discovery/hbo/tvb etc.
what are some of the good googletvboxes out there?

You have an android phone? Use it to see if there are any apps that have what you want. Then buy the TV box and install back the same app.

I don't think google play store will have such apps maybe search some Chinese forums and sideload the apk? If you want use Chromecast, only the official Android TV boxes will support it ( Nvidia shield and mi box) or you could just a Chromecast dongle.

And I only cast dramas that are 720p and 1080p to the TV. Tiny Cast for Chromecast will detect url video source quality and show all low and high quality url video source.

I suggest you use Adguard to block all unwanted advertisements from all browser apps and all other apps.

I am using adguard.

I never like ad. My smartphone is totally ad free.

For example, Channel News Asia, AsiaOne, Today online app .... they are all ad-free.

If you want free ad blocker for android. Here are a few you can try to see which one works for you. They don't just blocked ad in your browser but they also blocked ad from any other apps you are using.

You can try block-this and blokada ad blocker.

Ad-blocker will create a localize VPN. You will see a key symbol once it is active.

Thanks man ....

I wanted to give your above post a 'Like'; but before I could do it -- (at least) two of your posts today (including the one above) are already deleted by moderators.

This is -- one of the reasons -- why I no longer participate much in this forum.
