you can get mibox international version from shopee at less than $70.

the hardware build is solid because it is from xiaomi, software is from google. using google's android tv os without modification.

i.e. almost the same as the starhub box which costs $199.

Yeah, I was personally looking at the Mi box international but the Starhub box is actually 'cheaper' . However, if you are looking for a bare box, the Mi box is quite decent.

I think Starhub Box is better for beginners than Mi Box global version. I think the the bundled service is not bad especially for existing Starhub mobile users: S$54.8 per month for 24 month with 1Gbps Fibre and Go Family. Then I believe you will have the annual handset upgrade benefits as well (Hub club) — the box is essentially free.

Depending on your needs. It is always easier to go with SingTel and Starhub than DIY. But if you do not to go with that route, Mi Box seems to be good. I think you will be okay if you join the Facebook group. There are many users and many helpful guides there. :-)

Fyi, just checked with Starhub and their Go streaming box live channels are only 720p not 1080p as stated earlier.

SingTel TV Box is also 1080i/720p. I set it as 720p and it is good enough for me.

Still you can always buy boxes like Mi Box or other brand to supplement SingTel TV box or the StarHub box. They are cheap enough in terms of one time HW price.
