Pretty Good

published

Very solid runs well, remote is very handy
Would be great if it had an L A N onnection
Perfect for PLEX, Kodi, streaming apps and playing large files that TV's will not support
Remote is great as well

Purchased in April 2018 at eBay for $80.00.

Nearly perfect

published

I like this box, I have two of them. I have sideloaded Android apps (such as SBS, 9now) and use to watch foreigner channels (by using a smart DNS on router). The remote is amazing. Some of the side loaded apps though don't seem to work with remote provided. Netflix is hd and also ultra he, which is incredible for the price.

Perfect replacement for TV subscription

published

Was a very good and great replacement for my current TV subscription as it wasn't worth paying so much just for a few selection every month. TV box was very small as well, no lag in watching tv shows, dramas and movies. Quality was very good also. Still exploring other options on watching live tv and using the Kodi. Seller provided an AU plug adapter as well.

Hi all,

So this supports the Kodi App? May I ask if it supports the Kayo App also?

is it possible to install Expressvpn from Google Play and run it as an app in the same way I do on my Android-phone??

Possibly but couldn't say for sure. Regular play store and Android TV play store host different content so you would need to check with the publisher of that app if it is available. If not, you can side load the app you need and launch it using HAL but doesn't mean it will work, particularly being a system service. I use NordVPN, it's available on every platform I need.

I will also mention that Android TV has restrictions on writing to externally mounted filesystems that haven't been formatted as encrypted"device storage". Just in case that affects whatever you intend to do with the box.
