I just recently upgraded my Unifi package (during offer period) but when the installer came to change my modem. He said the TVbox is not included in the upgrade package, therefore cannot change or replace it with the new unit.
So misleading - the upgrade also involves adding new channel "ruby" package but doesn't cover the TVbox.
Sigh..will try to call them and negotiate again.
Yeah...the old box is indeed super lasting..but useless only can watch "their" shows not even youtube.

looks like they dun replace free anymore.

but u need not fret over it.... the new box is a very poor box too, basically built for playtv only.

for <rm120, u can buy a separate box and do a ton of apps with it with no headaches:

In this case I gotto switch over to Unifi box to watch the ruby package and switch back to the Tx3 box for other shows.
This tx3 box is not IPTV ? Can watch astro TVB series ?
I am so lost in all these boxes...dunt know what is to what usage. So sorry, an extreme noob here.

the unifi STB is only good for unifitv channels.
but the quality is the best u can get.
so, yes, u should stick to STB to enjoy the PQ, esp the HD channels - becos this is streamed via the STB with dedicated bandwidth.
u will probably not like the PQ if u watch the same channels on another box via app becos it is rather poor IPTV.

a separate box is used for other apps although u can use playtv@unifi app for the unifitv channels - quality lower as said.
a separate box allows u to do everything else - youtube HD/4K, netflix (in SD only typically), astrogo, hbo go, iflix... all other android apps under the sun.
"TVB series", it can be live tv or VOD.
if u have an astro (with chinese/TVB pack) subscriber's astrogo id/pw, u can use the legit app on the box and watch them.
if not, u can try some other apps that might give the same but may not be complete or not totally reliable - becos they are illegit and free.

for further info on such boxes and apps:

it takes a bit of work to get all these good stuff, take some time to read first.

I would like to get some clarifications before I sign up for Unifi 100mbps. Currently I am on Astro Maxis 10 mbps bundle & would like to migrate to Unifi.
When my TP-Link wall plug range extender is switched on, Astro IPTV automatically disconnects.

I have just purchased Tenda AC18 dual band wifi router. Internet is working & even the back rooms are having good internet connection without the use of any range extender. After installing the router. I found out that it is not compatible with Astro IPTV. Astro IPTV gets disconnected 2 minutes when I switch it on, displaying "Signal Unavailable (NCNA). Switch to another channel & it runs for another 2 minutes before it disconnects again.
Ethernet cables are plugged into Router's Port 4 & Astro's network port.
Contacted Tenda technician & Astro IPTV but nothing solved. Astro claims both Tenda Router & Tp-Link range extender are not compatible.

Does anyone subscribe to Unifi TV using their own router without encountering any problems? If so, any specific settings need to be performed? If not possible, I don't think there is any reason to pay more for the TV media box as the only reason is I would like to watch local TV channels on HD.

unifi 100mbps:
there are 2 plans, one with STB and one w/o the STB (use app only on yr own devices).
https://unifi.com.my/personal/home/fibre-br...XsaAjmPEALw_wcB

Unifi's STB is configured to work with the Unifi router at port #4, no worries there.
if u do not use that router, use yr own, it depends on the router.
Tenda, u shud ask in Tenda thread.
Asus, just about all of them will work with port #4, just plug it in, no need extra work.
https://forum.lowyat.net/topic/2651405/+10160#bottom

if u go for the no STB plan, u need a box that can do playtv@unifi app... not all boxes can.
the picture quality with app is much lower than that with STB; the SD channels are especially poor.
note unifitv/playtv channels are not at all same as astro, u may not like the change.
however, if u can get id/pw from another subscriber, u can use astrogo app and get same channels but lower quality.
astrogo, like playtv@unifi does not work on all boxes; u gotta get the right one:

Hi, I'm new to unifi tv (with set-top-box).

Is there any English channel with English subtitles? I couldn't find one yet.. didn't try all yet..

Even auto-subtitle one like in youtube also ok..
I thought unifi tv have English subtitle for English channel.. want to help my foreign member learn to listen to English... these native English speaking is quite fast for a beginner.. a bit disappointed if don't have because that was my primary reason of subscribing to unifi tv..
