Simple, easy to use and works every time
Very simple effective device.
Easy to connect and use. We don't use it every day but it has been trouble free when we do.
I bought a second one for a family member, they're happy too.

This is a very handy little gadget especially for those of a non-tech bent (like me). Connection was stress -free and though I think some of the formatting is cluttered and takes a bit of navigation that is far outweighed by the fact that my 8 year old television his now connected to the internet. Only drawback is searching for something means using the remote's keypad and picking out each letter one at a time from the onscreen keypad. BUT...just solved that by downloading android tv remote app onto my tablet and the tv so I can use the touch keyboard to type as per usual. If I can do it anyone can and only $72...highly recommended.

Awesome Authentic Android TV Box
I had previously bought another brand Android TV Box which only worked with a Bluetooth remote (no RF) and this was a problem for me as I get headaches from Bluetooth frequency after a while. I searched for a proper Android TV Box (not box that uses a Rooted Android phone system which alot of popular Play apps now detect and won't work on) and found this excellent device. AUTHENTIC ANDROID TV which updates to Android 9 on first startup. Can use all the Apps required (Netflix/Stan/Disney...etc) RF Remote (plus Bluetooth also if you like voice co...ntrol) but the bonus is you can turn off the Bluetooth in settings if you don't like. Also includes an Ethernet Port and FTA (Free To Air TV)(which a lot of other Android boxes don't include). Unit works with my 650 Harmony Remote (Must setup under model Technicolor UIW4030VHA) Excellent operation and works quickly....Highly Recommend!

Have used it now for 18 months. If you have any old "non smart" tv, it is perfect for you. The fact that 1 remote can be used to surf the net, watch tv, adjust the volume is excellent... Get one while you can.

Exactly what I was looking for
I stumbled across this device when researching another Android TV unit. I bought this unit hoping to replace my Foxtel box in our second room. We don't have tv aerial but have ethernet internet so setup was easy. Have all the catch up apps plus netflix. I've just cancelled my Foxtel box so saving $25 per month. Might get another for the other room and bin Foxtel altogether. Definitely recommend.

Can't say enough good things about this device!
I had way too much fun with this device to not post a review.
Sourced one of these for my elderly parents who I've set up an enterprise home network for -- along with a file server that houses a backup of their entire CD/DVD/Bluray collection. Started off by installing Stan/Netflix/Kodi/YouTube/Spotify as well as all Australian catch-up TV apps (yep, all of them!). You can install Prime Video onto it as well (which actually works flawlessly).

* Gigabit Ethernet,

Great product at a great price!
Few problems at the start which I sorted out myself (related to my older plasma tv - not the VTV). Very, very happy with this little unit now - connected to modem via ethernet cable (used my own cable as the one that comes with the VTV is short). Great buy!
Update: casting Kayo from iPhone to VTV now - works perfectly. There was supposed to be a Kayo app for VTV but I gave the casting (VTV has built-in Chromecast) a try and it's perfect. Might start using the USB port and Kodi app as well. From my perspective this unit does all I need it to do at a great price.

With out a smart tv this product was great so we could watch everything from Stan YouTube Netflix and the price we were offered was really good. Great service again

Could have been great
Fairly good unit
HDMI and live tv issues
Doesnt support items it should
Have been overall dissapointed in what should have been a great unit, would love to see them support it better and keep it current

proper Android TV box that's supurb value and not locked down
Similar to Guy Stevens review here, at just $72 I would rate this the best budget Android box in the Australian market in 2020. And you don't have to be a Vodafone customer. Anyone can buy it.
- Runs Android TV for streaming - and its a proper Google licenced "Android TV" box, so apps from popular streaming services like Netflix are officially supported and won't suddenly stop working as they often do on generic Android boxes.
- Not locked or crippled like Telstra has done with their Roku box, so it has most of the flexibility of generic ...

Best value Android TV box on the market
- Runs Android TV for streaming
- TV card tuner included
- Not locked so will run any Android app, including Kodi, not just those from the Play Store
- Excellent zippy remote
- Fully licensed for Google, Netflix etc (unlike cheap Chinese boxes) with L1 Widevine support
- Chromecast built-in
- 2.4/5ghz wifi and ethernet port
Cons...- Low disk storage (8gb) but can be expanded via the USB port - Amlogic 905 processor + 2gb ram = average hardware performance - No auto frame-rate switching - Basic TV guide and limited recording function This combined streaming TV/set-top box is a bargain. At $72 it's worth it just for Chromecast. It runs Google's Android TV for easy navigation and untold streaming options - Netflix, Youtube, Amazon, etc, as well as Kodi and much more. The remote is great and picture quality good, though home cinema buffs might want to opt for a top-end box like the Nvidia Shield. For most viewing though, this box is terrific, with 4-star performance, but it gets an extra star for exceptional value.

Great TV Addition
This product is awesome it picked up channels I never knew I had love it. It was very easy to set up and is neat and compact to look at. Wouldn't be without it now

Great. Best ever tv box
Fabulous tv box with internet and a very responsive remote control. It is so easy to use and even has voice control built into the remote control. Can't go past it for the $$. Has Netflix built in ... That makes it really Great !! Comes with a 2 year warranty..

I've had a smart tv for several years but recently I've been looking at other options that are quicker and more powerful - enter the Vodafone tv.
The Vodafone tv is a mighty quick unit - seriously more responsive and powerful than what is in the 2013 tv I use. The inclusion of the Chromecast in the unit makes this amazing value and it ensures that I can access any service I need whether its available on Google TV or not.
