Anyone still using GeekBoxSG? Seems like their dead now or is it?
Not using it and the website seems to be down. However there is a kiosk in Jurong Point JP2 selling the Geekbox only and not other stuff. Business seems to be so so but they are there for sometimes already. There are two more kiosks selling preloaded boxes along with other accessories. The Remax shop also sells Redbean TV boxes.

In general do not buy these preloaded boxes sold in Shopping Centres.

But if you already bought the Geekbox you can still try to use it (even if the bundled iptv and VOD apps no longer work). Just learn to install other apps.

Xiaofan, come to think of it, why people cannot install EVpad or Unblock apps on their empty Android boxes (e.g. Tanix, Beelink, etc)?

Because the app check the HW/FW info on the box.

No point. They upgrade pretty often.

You can subscribe to Sunshine IPTV which is said to power the EVpad IPTV technology. But then the price is about S$80 per year -- better to buy EVpad 3S at around S$120 in that case.

I see. Maybe it's tough for authorities to enforce legal rights on EVpad or Unblock because their servers are overseas.

Not really. Take note Ubox IPTV already got blocked by SG authority. It is just the workaround is pretty easy -- changing DNS.

Eventually they will get shut down or go out of business. But it probably takes time.

Now they are selling pure box without the IPTV/VOD apps in Taiwan to work around the law. The sales will go down. Imagine that also happen in Singapore and Malaysia. The sales will go down too.

Both are banned in mainland China too prior to the ban in Taiwan, for other reasons (hidden adult channels).

BTW, big IPTV providers also get sued and many websites related to pirate streaming of live TV have been closed down due to DMCA.

Ref: US$50 million penalty for IPTV providers

Over the past years, ACE has built a steady track record of successful cases against IPTV providers and services. In addition to Omniverse, it also helped to shut down SetTV, Dragon Box, TickBox, Vader Streams, and many third-party Kodi addons.
