Tomorrow I am going down to Comex. Can anyone recommend which android box to look for? I am looking for those non-subscription box
The one behind the Samsung booth seems good at $139, they will help to preload the apks for you and can watch shows ranging from TVB dramas to Malaysian/Taiwan/China/HK channels.

The best place to buy android box is local online sites, such as lazada, qoo10.

Expect to pay 2-3 times if you get your sets from comex, other expo or sim lim square.

Don't buy all those boxes that lure you with free shows!!

You use for 1 or 2 months then the server go offline. By the time the seller run away or change name liao.

If you want free but don't want to pay you will have to put in effort.
Either you use your google fu search the internet for APKs and alternatives when the APKs / Kodi addons stop working or you pony up $$ for a Netflix/Starhub tv box subscription etc.

For me i use plex/kodi to watch videos stored on my NAS. Both kodi and plex offer a streamline experience. For live shows, I use an app to stream the web page to my chromecast.

Most android boxes don't have much if any software updates. The official android TV boxes like the mibox/Nvidia shield seem to be well supported. App updates is another matter

Some of these "3 years software update" are from cut throat sellers.

Better get an empty box.
