under the new law, it is illegal to sell the apps that allow user to stream from unauthorised sources.
Not buying, only download the free one

previously you used wrong apps on xiaomi box that is meant for views in china.

if you installed right apps on your old xiaomi box now, you can still stream smoothly.

actually those app for china it is downloadable for the international version?

Yes you can install the apps which are meant for China (Youku, Tencent Video, iQiyi, etc) on your Mi Box and Mi Box S, but the contents are mostly geoblocked. So you need to use VPN or things like Unblock Youku.

For Youku and QQ Music, what I have found out is that you can pay for the VIP and then you can access the content without VPN.

I know user can buy an empty box then put the apps in but they may do a full ban all set top box. May be under the new law only ISP can sell such box.

Read the news and the government file carefully. They can not just ban all set top boxes.

Since you have a Starhub streaming box and that is an Android TV box as well running an Operator version of Android TV OS. You can install the pirate stream apps on your Starhub box as well. So you think the government should ban the starhub box as well? Same for the Sony Android smart TV running as well.

People can buy Mi Box S purely for the purpose of 4k Netflix and YouTube, and that is perfectly legal.

don't have to change dns

just delete the app from the box and install again from the app market, then it should work.

i guess ub changed the server address.

Looks like this is the end for the Android TV Box. Maybe you can still buy it online if you act fast.
