You can find those same boxes way cheaper online. The only benefit from buying from those TV box from local stores is the pre-installed apps. Which are obviously not legal and can be taken down anytime.

What I suggest to OP is to not depend on the preinstalled apps but to do the searching and installing of apps themselves.
Like netflix, viu, etc?

You don't understand what is chromecast.

Chromecast won't work if your phone is not connect to home wifi.
I was actually referring to Anycast. Chromecast can only use Google Home right?

If you want netflix your options are the mi box or Nvidia shield as netflix only whitelist official android TV os devices to play HD netflix. If the android TV os appstore don't have viu, you can still watch via Chromecast as it's supported by both boxes

Download the chromecast app to your phone. The app will show you some of the most popular compatible apps

Hi guys, is there a box that doesn't require downloading of app to use. Buying one mainly for parents use and want it as user friendly as possible, ie like watching TV and not scroll through apps.

I made a trip down to comex, and the only shop that I saw with TV and vod is 3pm.sg and sells the magic x plus for $279. Sounds abit pricey or is this the market price?

The other shops I saw revolves around clicking on apps to get to shows, not too ideal.

It's probably a $50 while label box that the distributor installed their own software and logos and mark up the price. Like all other pirated box, the server that host the streams will be taken down eventually. before that the distributor will drop all support for the hardware to prevent angry consumers form complaining.

If you want legit supported easy to use TV boxes, you will have to get the legal device like Nvidia shield, mibox or a apple tv and pay for the content
