If I have an Android phone and a Android Box, is it possible to cast on the Box from the phone ?
Not all android box support chromecast. Only the google "licensed" ones like the mi box or nvidia shield will do chromecast.

Yes. They have a plan. Box is optional and for those less tech savvy aunty.
Hey, that's good for those that are tech savy. How much is the monthly subscription? $14.90 too?

Ah, found the list from Stahub's website.

I use catch up TV a lot so I guess the family pack at $14.90 is most relevant. I was planning to buy an Android box as well so I guess some of that cost went into the 6 months "free" period .

You can watch starhub go if you have an android smart TV.

Just run starhubgo on the andriod phone and chromecast the video to the TV.

If your TV is not using android TV OS, you can either buy a TV box with android TV OS, e.g mibox international version. It is only $70+, much cheaper than the box from starhub.

You can also try to run the app on pure android OS TV box (not rooted), it may work too.
I have a 'stupid' TV so the box works great. 6 months "free" means $14.90x6+$70=$159.40. OK la, Starhub done its math.

I asked Starhub if Starhub Go is valid as a TV subscription to Hub Club, they say no. So please take note.

Oh and Go Select that cost $9.90 per month for 6 months. I guess that $199 wasn't that expensive (correct me if I'm not).

If you work out the costing on the Packs > Starhub Go Packs

Part of the package includes;
1) Go Family (TV Channels) $14.90 x 6 = $89.40
2) Go Select Packs on $9.90 x 6 = $59.40
Total 89.40 + 59.40 = $148.80

Full Package = 199 - 148.80 = $50.20 for the Starhub Go Streaming box.

For the Go Select Packs $9.90 you have a choice on Sports or TV series.

The TV series do include TVB dramas, K-dramas, HBO Originals and more as available in the Starhub Go channels.

Beside there is movies channels in CATCHPLAY Unlimited or per movie.

It is more on the marketing the promotion on Go Family & Select packs in the bundle as well as Starhub Go product.

Thanks.

Wonderful explanation Eric.

It's odd why the officer didn't ask me about selecting Sports or TV series when I signed up. So what you're saying is that there is an overlap of channels if I select the TV series for 'Go Select Pack'?

Actually a 2/8GB Android box cost about $70 so I guess it wasn't that bad signing up.

Thanks.. no hurry.

Wait till my contract expire by end this year and see if there is any offer from Starhub first.

To see if they still provide me the free TV subscription or not as hopefully to extend current free TV subscription.

Checking out all available options.

I see and I agree with what you have in mind.

BTW, should I switch to Sports since I already have 'Go Family"?
