I have posted here before but I am going to post again.

Don't buy the TV box for the piracy streams. Think about it. Is it practical for the manufacturer to provide you with lifetime streams for just a one time payment? More like they give you the stream for a few weeks then the server go down. Then when you go to complain, the seller gone already or claim no longer supporting the box.

Also if you insist on having piracy streams, buy a box form AliExpress for $50 and you can load whatever piracy apps you like into it without paying the extortion charge from the local scammers

Bro if this is true....can u proof ur claim?some picture will do......so at least we can avoid the shop and company
Btw can u share the piracy apps(PM me) so we can load ourself...im thinking of getting one cheaper at ezbuy

no brand.

"design in singapore" is BS, or may be it refers to the packaging box.

The normal market price for these type of brandless box is less than $40. So you are paying $120 for the tv apps.

This box has 1GB RAM, 4GB NAND, based on my experience, it should be less than $25.

$99 is $40 to expensive.


Further more these kind of boxes can't play HD netflix. It's only good for pirated streams and other android apps.

Nowadays much avail on android play store.A simple way is to ask the the apps installed in the box of your friend has.The newer the better.Some is 3rd party apk. though.

Go to the suntec and expo and see the ah beng demo the tv box.
Can ask them what apk are included in the box.
And you have your answer.

There are android TV boxes with digital tuners built in. However you are better off getting a standalone digital set top box as those all in one units kinda suck
