Just got a ubox during the recent $119 promo. Tried to watch TVB series and US series via UVOD but most of time after a few minutes, the show will starts to buffer quite a bit. Tried watching at night and morning, seems no difference. Is it always this bad? Or Is it just me? is there a workaround? maybe selecting a lower resolution etc? Thanks!

Yes, it behaves this way. Hopefully they can increase the service later.

However, for video on-demand, UVOD is not the only app available. You should be able to apps freely available on internet, many of them are showing latest TVB and US series smoothly in HD.

Your display goes back to 1080p now?

Can i check with you even with HDMI port but my tv is maybe only 720p, can Ubox works on it? I am not getting ubox detected on my TV... :(

Is your's displaying something like "resolution not supported, please change your source"? mine was like that when i changed it to 4k. I remember when i first purchase it it was set to only 720p

Try and see if this works. Use the startup wizard app(设置导航) and change the box's language to english. Then go into the livetv app and see if the channel names have been changed to english or not. If no, uninstall and reinstall the livetv app and then check again. I remember last time when i accidentally changed my box's language to english, all the livetv channel names also got changed to english too.

how's UBTV for watching epl?

Dont bother. For starters, their sports channels picture quality are very low(between 360p to 480p). And i have already mentioned numerous times that during wkends when there are epl matches, the livetv app will become highly unstable. All the channels in the sports section will either not load at all or will load but rebuffer every 5-10 seconds.

Just wondering, can the Unblock TV work like a Chromecast receiver?

Can use other apps like Kodi to get 720p EPL. But these apps can be installed on any Android box don't need to be ub

Any sic on how to get it?

Kodi is essentially just a media player (platform).

You need to install add-ons to Kodi to watch dramas, movies & Live TV (including Live Sports/Football).

There are many versions/fork of Kodi.

The official version of Kodi is available from the Google Playstore:
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.xbmc.kodi

After installing Kodi you need to install add-ons that caters to watching EPL/football.

It is not so difficult to Google/search for such stuff. For some examples see these links below:
https://www.ivacy.com/blog/how-to-watch-english-premier-league-on-kodi/
https://tutorial-iptv-kodi.blogspot.sg/2017/02/list-best-kodi-addon-epl-2017-live-streaming.html

http://www.bestdroidplayer.co.uk/xbmc-android-tv-box-droidplayer/best-sports-addons-kodi/
https://www.ivacy.com/blog/5-best-kodi-football-addons/

If you don't use Kodi, you also can also install (many) individual apps/APK to watch football/EPL.

An example of such an app is PTV Sports that you can get from the Google Playstore:
