I thought those streaming boxes are somehow downloading contents from some server in China and they have authentication and we cannot do it on our own?

That the case with Xiaomi but they got so much lawsuit incoming that they drop the idea.

I doubt the no name brands can pull such a service off for an extended period of time. Hosting media cost $$ that's why netflix cost $ and YouTube is flooded with ads.

Anyone knows if Tanix TX3 is rooted by default?

I want to run Starhub go and it will not run on rooted device. Don’t want to pay $199 for Starhub overpriced android tv box.

As a matter of fact Starhub Go App may not be applicable on Android and Apple TV box.

Any reason why? I assume it can be done since it works on android phone.

I have a rooted phone and the app runs without any issue. Can't test further as I don't have a starhub subscription

Please refer to reply by Starhub CSO > You will not be able to download the StarHub GO app on Andriod TV.

Beside this there are do have comments on Apple TV box unable to download Starhub Go App.

And within the "What is Starhub Go" support page on What devices can I use to stream StarHub Go?

Listed devices are all mobile handsets.

Not all Apps can be available in some handsets as stated not compatible.

You can watch starhub go if you have an android smart TV.

Just run starhubgo on the andriod phone and chromecast the video to the TV.

If your TV is not using android TV OS, you can either buy a TV box with android TV OS, e.g mibox international version. It is only $70+, much cheaper than the box from starhub.

You can also try to run the app on pure android OS TV box (not rooted), it may work too.

Not all android box support chromecast. Only the google "licensed" ones like the mi box or nvidia shield will do chromecast.

Yes. They have a plan. Box is optional and for those less tech savvy aunty.

Hey, that's good for those that are tech savy. How much is the monthly subscription? $14.90 too?

Ah, found the list from Stahub's website.

I use catch up TV a lot so I guess the family pack at $14.90 is most relevant. I was planning to buy an Android box as well so I guess some of that cost went into the 6 months "free" period :s13:.

I have a 'stupid' TV :s13: so the box works great. 6 months "free" means $14.90x6+$70=$159.40. OK la, Starhub done its math.

I asked Starhub if Starhub Go is valid as a TV subscription to Hub Club, they say no. So please take note.

Oh and Go Select that cost $9.90 per month for 6 months. I guess that $199 wasn't that expensive (correct me if I'm not).

If you work out the costing on the Packs > Starhub Go Packs

Part of the package includes;
1) Go Family (TV Channels) $14.90 x 6 = $89.40
2) Go Select Packs on $9.90 x 6 = $59.40
Total 89.40 + 59.40 = $148.80

Full Package = 199 - 148.80 = $50.20 for the Starhub Go Streaming box.

For the Go Select Packs $9.90 you have a choice on Sports or TV series.

The TV series do include TVB dramas, K-dramas, HBO Originals and more as available in the Starhub Go channels.

Beside there is movies channels in CATCHPLAY Unlimited or per movie.

It is more on the marketing the promotion on Go Family & Select packs in the bundle as well as Starhub Go product.
