For those who want to subscribe to TVB Anywhere+ Premium.

Mi Box S is listed in TVB Anywhere+ support list of Android TV OS devices but not Chromecast 2020.
https://staticweb.tvbanywhere.com/certified-android-TV-list.pdf

You can also purchase the Official TVB Android TV Box at S$121.50 from Shopee to be sure of support.

The good thing is the official support of TVB Anywhere and built-in Ethernet. But Mi Box S is much cheaper.

Can Dynalink box support TVB Anywhere+ ? Thanks

it is not on the official list, however it is a google certified android tv os box with chromecast built-in.

may be you want to try and let us know.

if you want to play safe, just buy those on tvb's official list, e.g mibox s

You can download QQ Music TV version from Dangbei or Shafa. Then you can sideload it. The mobile version VIP works for the TV version as well.

As for China VPN TV version, you have to pay to have good user experiences. You can either pay for Transocks or AJS TV version.

Thanks, does Surfshark work? AJS needs China credit card to subscribe?

Also any idea how come the playlists in my account that I setup using Phone, doesn't show up in Android TV box or Windows QQ?

None of the traditional VPN apps will work, including Surfshark. Only a few VPNs approved by the Chinese authority will work, like Transock, SpeedIn, SpeedCN, AJS and Malus.

You can pay most of them through iOS in-app purchase if you do not have access to WeChat Pay or Alipay.

As for QQ Music, usually I use it on my mobile phone. I seldom use on the TV box (interface not as good). I also do not use Windows or Mac for entertainment. And yes I remember the play list does not sync.

Read through but cant decide still. Is it better to buy chromecast 2020 vs Mibox S or Dynalink if i mainly want to watch Disney plus?

I also watch some china movie apps occasionally so not sure which would be better for it?

Any recommendations for good movie apps actually?

I also looking and just decided on Chromecast with Google TV.

The Dynalink was interesting until i read the reviews complain HDR is always on even for non-HDR content, so those looks wash out as result.

Chromecast 2020 is better for 4k contents viewing than Mi Box S, as it has a faster CPU and it supports Dolby Vision and Atmos.

In fact Mi Box S GUI interface runs very smooth for 1080p, just okay for 4k 30fps but not that good for 4k 60fps, because of the lower end CPU.

If you want the best user experiences, go with Nvidia Shield TV.

Nv shield price is too high. So chrome 2020 is a better device and interface ? I have just seen some reviews of it so far so good

it was on its Walmart page, reading Dynalink's 1 star reviews and saw claims that there is no HDR content auto-detection, that everything default to HDR on.
