ok thanks i think mine 50 or 55.

I will not recommend Mi TV Stick myself even for 1080p. Mi Box S is cheap enough and 2GB memory will make your life better. I use Mi Box S with 1080p.

Or you may want to pay a bit more and get Google Chromecast 2020 with Google TV.

Mi Box S is certified by Google and Netflix. It is for international market.

Still Google Chromecast 2020 is better.

BTW, what is the model of your old Mi Box China version?

There is no point to root the box and install Google services with these older China version of Mi Box.

If it is not too old and have 2GB RAM, then it can still be used effectively with the right apps.

Even if it has only 1GB RAM, you can try to disable the built-in apps and install right apps to make full use of it.

In that case, forget about the China version of Mi Box.

You need certified box to use Netflix HD.

don't waste your time.

spend $70 to buy a mibox s.

or $33 to buy mi tv stick.

you are willing to pay subscriptions for netflix and disney+, that work out to be at least $264 per year. Why try to save a few dollars?
