Any good Android TV box with big internal storage to recommend? Don't want to keep getting prompts to uninstall apps because there's insufficient storage. Performance and connectivity should be good.

you never mention price, so price is not your concern :)

nvidia shield tv pro should be good for you.

Only 16GB not sure enough or not. Can watch Netflix, YouTube, iQiyi, Tencent Video, Toggle, Amazon Prime Video, etc? Which are some reliable sources to get from?

I am using mibox which has only 8gb, and I installed more than 50 apps and still has 1.5GB free space.

Since you are new, trust the reputable manufacturers, they won't sell half-baked products.

Beelink GT King Pro seems to tick all the checks except that it can't stream Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in HD and it is only 32-bit. Any good alternative?
actually because of this, i'm thinking of shld i buy the mibox S instead but the S905X is quite outdated.

Is mibox s very slow? Qoo10 price around $70 which is quite ex compared to other MIC box. Is Mibox S is running on android TV OS? I used logitech Revue before many many yrs ago but it does have compatibility issues with those china app cos it is running android TV OS instead of the usual Android ASOP OS.

Use 99Kubo it comes with TVB drama in Chinese & Cantonese but the update for Chinese will be a bit slower than Cantonese.

you are using strange combinations.

if using ubox, don't have to pay for cloudtv or use the free version of cloudtv.

ubox should give you smooth streaming for all its contents, don't need vpn.

Newbie here:

So the key is to buy a good spec box and then download free Apks?

What boxes can stream fast, 4K and easy to navigate and download apk?

most likely the channels you saw are from the free version of cloudtv. Some of the channels in the free version are no good.

remove the cloudtv from the box,and you solve the problem.

ub should have sufficient channels for you or your dad.

I think it more on the app to see movies.
Not so much on Android box
Most of the box out there should work well with a movies app

Guys using Mi Box S, and had some of the apps like B**TV and Ty****.

But for some reasons the videos loaded is buffering? The MiBox S runs on wifi, and checked the speed using some app from Playstore and it getting about 50mbps download and upload speeds. Is this comparative slow network?

But the tv when its own internal Youtube seems to be fine and loading with no buffering :/

Are there any other settings I can twerk?
