If you have under $100 to spend get the Xiaomi mi box. Comes with official android TV os not the nonsense skin android tablet os that those random box come with. If you want a box to play your 4k hdr DTS surround sound media, get the Nvidia shield.

If you mean use the usb port for external storage then both devices come with usb ports and support playback from external storage.

Personally I would rather use a streaming service or download the movie to my Nas and stream it on the tv. Putting videos on external storage sounds medieval to me

Me too, but I mostly watch the show on my mobile during my trip to and fro from work on the train/bus.

Just to share my experience. Got my android box from red bean at sls L1. Bought it last year for my mother. After While, she complained it can't be used anymore.

Today I brought it back to the shop as it has 3 years software warranty. Sounds good right?

Guess what, I go back, they tell me lots of the app can't be used anymore, if I want to jail break to watch more channels, I need to pay $40.. WTF right. Then I pointed out about the 3 years software warranty, then she just load in rss media, delete some of the obselet apps. Nothings else was done. For now, from 20+apps when I first buy, claiming all can watch n today, about 5 apps only.

Seriously? Best is just go to the net n learn how to find your own app, how to jail break. Or just subscribe to those app channel.

what jailbreak? you can install apps in any android box, don't have to break anything.

for appletv, you need jailbreak, because it is locked.

for android box, jailbreak is a term for conman to con money.

Precisely.. That's why I say no... This shop is really a cheat. Or maybe all the shops there are

prepared to have the stream MIA when they generate too much traffic to handle. Those pirate streams always don't last long and you have to keep searching for new streams

I never found a web stream that have good quality (bitrate) videos.

Even Netflix 4K looks compressed.

If you are a Videophile, I suggest you download movies 40-100GB for a 4K video or 8GB for a 1080p movie then stream it to your tv box via kodi or plex
