IMHO none of the IPTV packages are worth paying because all of them can be blocked anytime the IP right holders complain to the court.

But if you really want to try, S$30 is not too bad.

You can also ask here.

2) Minix NEO U9-H, recommend to buy the bundle A2 Lite Air Mouse, 2017 model, still a good box especially for Kodi, but a bit pricey now for its a bit outdated specifications.

Sorry I am not an expert in finding good lobang.
You may want to monitor the sales from this "Xiaomi Global Store " in Lazada. In the past this shop gave good offers from time to time, including a recent Lazada 7-year Anniversary sale -- S$75 listed with S$5 store voucher on 27 March 2019, before other coupons or credit card discounts you have.

https://s.lazada.sg/s.ekL6
Now the price is S$83 with 5% off store voucher, for Mi Box S MDZ-22-AB.

If you do not mind the older version, this is also a good buy for Mi Box Global version MDZ-16-AB.
https://s.lazada.sg/s.e6Tq
S$66 with 5% off store voucher.

The two versions are almost identical in terms of HW specifications and user experiences.

S$66 listed price for the Tanix TX5 Max 4GB/32GB is pretty good price. And there is an S$2 voucher.

I bought it from Taobao at RMB310 or S$62 plus 7% GST and Sea Shipment. So my one is more expensive than the Shoppee already.

I took the offer.

Found a $7 voucher so bought an airmouse with keyboard as well since it was also only 6.50. This will be my first TV box so hopefully can get it to work

Yes. HappyCast works well on the Android TV box for DLNA Cast. HappyCast also supports Airplay if you have iOS device.

For YouTube, Toggle, Starhub Go, HBO Go, SingTel Cast, etc, you have to use Google Cast (Chromecast).

You guys are very good to find the lobangs. Ha-ha.

Okay lah, the lowest so far I read in this thread was S$52.85 from WindWaver for TX5 Max, from Page 97.

So you can have S$66-2-5-6=S$53 in the end with all the discounts, right? That is pretty much the same as S$52.85. Good job!
