The happycast quite good wor! Just that cannot cast youtube but is fine.
youtube has its own casting mechanism, not necessary to use chromecast or airplay if you don't have them.

make sure that your youtube on your box is TV version, you can pair the phone's youtube to your box, once it is paired you can cast youtube to TV.

hmmm just wondering, i just bought the TX5 max box from shopee and applied the 5 dollars off coupon and used a DBS card to pay. Somehow the total shows the 5 dollars off but not the DBS card discount. Why huh?

Update:
Anyway just called them and they say before i didn't buy from shopee mall, there is no 5 dollars off for dbs card.

TVB on big screen was one exclusive content for StarHub previously but now finally TVB Anywhere + is also offered for big screen by offering Android TV version on its website.

If you only need VOD, I think there are now pretty good legitimate alternative offerings to SingTel TV and StarHub Fibre TV in Singapore, with Toggle, StarHub Go, SingTel Cast, Netflix, HBO Go, TVB Anywhere+, Viu, Amazon Prime Video, Hooq, Fox+, Catchplay On Demand, etc, as well as the offering from Apple and Google.

If you need live TV, then it is still limited in Singapore. Toggle, SingTel Cast and StarHub Go only have limited choices for live TV, compared to SingTel TV and StarHub Fibre TV.

Not so sure which box you are referring to but with Mi Box S you can install SingTel Cast and SingTel TV Go app directly on the box.

Please advice

hi there, beginner at TV box here. Would like to seek advice on these 2 TV boxes I found online.

https://www.lazada.sg/products/prein...b3lLHMv_6tSygo

https://www.lazada.sg/products/tx3-2...28BvZY1rKoWUw8

Are they worth buying? My requirements is to have something that replaces my Starhub TV. It's for my mum.

Also, I notice their live tv channels do not require subscriptions. Does that mean their connections will be unstable? If paying for live channels help, may I know how I can go about to do it myself?

Thank you.

no.

These are cheap boxes with free apps and sold at premium price. You should be able to find similar boxes at $30-$60 cheaper.

Viu is the major streaming platform for Korean entertainment. You can try Viu or Viu for Tablet version from Google Play Store to see which one works better for you.

Both free and paid option are available.
