Go to the suntec and expo and see the ah beng demo the tv box.
Can ask them what apk are included in the box.
And you have your answer.

There are android TV boxes with digital tuners built in. However you are better off getting a standalone digital set top box as those all in one units kinda suck

Looking to use the app directly on a box. Using Chromecast to cast from android tablet now but sometimes problematic for not so savvy users when there is Chromecast cannot connect or there is a lag..

If I use the app, can seamlessly stop on mobile and then continue on the tv without extra steps to cast or search for the title..

Recommended to get a separate box. Get the neww media box because the remote control can learn some of the functions of the TV, that'll cut down on the number of remotes sitting around.

I personally using the Draco box with the Funke 250 antenna (value for money).

You mean the outlet from wall? No, we're going back to good old days of external antenna :s13: but this time for digital signal.
