Not sure if this is the correct place to ask this question but here it goes.

I have never use an android box in my entire life but can it provide any show that i want, including all the cartoons?
Currently im using a smartTV too.

The reason i wanted something like this is because these options are not so good:
a) hypptv - very few favorite shows and it is a scheduled program
b) netflix - limited seasons/ episodes in malaysian channel
c) online stream - link sometimes broken and potential virus infection


Thank you.

There are certain apps you can install on your Android Box like KODI - which gives you access to a lot of (free but illegal) content. However, setting it up can be cumbersome, especially if you're using a cheapo android box.

My house is currently using Nvidia Shield for KODI & Netflix

but now i thought of getting 1 so i can let my son watch cartoon shows.
currently netflix has limited seasons/ favorite cartoon and hypptv programs are scheduled shows.

My lg smart TV can go online stream but have to use remote control manually press keys and close all ads. Very troublesome. Plus most of the time cannot watch due to memory full issue and have to clear memory.

So i am thinking of an external streaming device.

It's honestly worth it + you get Nvidia stream gaming service. My father bought it via Amazon actually, on a good discount. When it came here had to go declare at SIRIM.

I can't really tell you how to set up KODI and such, because my father was the one that did it - but he had a lot trouble in the beginning lol

As for me, I still prefer a HTPC - much more control compared to an Android Box.

You can get it cheaper if you buy it yourself and ship to malaysia using buynship
1 guy in a popular fb streaming group is selling it for RM980. But delivery takes about 3 weeks

HyppTV, i think you can buy a cheap empty tvbox from shopee or lazada then look for MYIPTV4K to subscribe RM150/half year.
Online stream, personally I do not recommend Kodi. I prefer to use "xfplay" if you are Chinese user because you can visit ixftv.com with this app to play any China, HK, Korean, Japan, US dramas and movies with Chinese subtitles. xfplay can be downloaded from Google play store or http://www.xfplay.com

I personally recommend you to buy an open source tvbox, just stop believe that kind of evpad, svicloud, longtv etc.
Just go for the amlogic S905X3 tvbox, make sure there have 4GB ram, gigabit LAN port, support 5GHz wifi and support 4K 60hz with HDR.
The price was just around RM150~RM200 only. I do not recommend evpad, better just go subscribe MYIPTV4K and pay for RM150 every half year. All their channels are smooth and high definition. Also comes with subtitles.

There have Google Play store and also you can manually install Aptoide TV by download the apk from here https://tv.aptoide.com.
Mostly the open source tvbox can be customized and rootable. You also can change to your favorite TV launcher such as Ugoss launcher, ATV launcher or others.

The most important thing is amlogic S905X3 tvbox is fast and the price is cheap. Faster than most of the evpad, svicloud, longtv tvbox outside there.
EVPAD has lifetime axtro, singapore, indonesia, thailand, china, hong kong, taiwan, sports channels, national geographics channels etc.. However, the big disadvantages that I really don't like is their servers, some of their channels have error and cannot be load. Next is most of their channels don't have subtitles. Meaning that I am watching most of the channels that I'm totally not understand what did he/she talking about. Not worth if we watch a Korean drama in tvN without subtitles.

I have tried many types of IPTV out there, so far the only best IPTV outside there is MYIPTV4K. I'm also not to help the provider to promote their IPTV. This is just for my personal experience of using IPTV for about 5 years.

Was considering evpad as there is a physical stall inside mall nearby. Good for trouble shooting support especially for non tech person. As I know, no other cost incurred once purchase the evpad set. Seem to cost more though. Thanks for sharing about sub titles. It is very important for me.

So...
Amlogic = a brand of tvbox
IPTV = the apps to download (such as MYIPTV4K)

Then... evpad = tvbox + apps installed, right?

amlogic is the type of CPU that using in the tvbox. There got many third party IPTV provider outside there. EVPAD is one of them, JoyTV also similar like evpad. Some are selling the app only and some of them are selling all-in-one including tvbox such like evpad, svicloud and longtv.

I have using myiptv4k and mypad4k for many years. Last time I'm using evpad 2s but I dislike it, so I install myiptv into evpad. Later that, they got offer huat88tv for chinese users so I switch to huat88tv. After that, they shutdown huat88tv then just left myiptv. After that my evpad 2s was spoilt, I don't have any tvbox during that time. Later that, they open another new line to offer mypadtv. Mypadtv can support android tablets, android phones, iPad, iPhone and Windows PC. Later that, I was switched to mypadtv to watch with google chrome. The provider later then upgrade their channels to HD to become mypadtv4k and myiptv4k for tvbox version. After a year of using the mypad4k, some of their channels cannot be loaded. So I did complaint to them. After few months, finally they shutdown their mypad4k to make concentrate into only one myiptv4k. I have no choice later, to watch with android emulator in my PC because my subscriptions for mypad4k still not ended yet. The provider was stopped to support web browser and updated their android mypad4k app to v1.50 to link with the sources from myiptv4k. The provider is now just concentrating in one myiptv4k, so later I was bought a new tvbox. I was requested the seller help me to convert my subscriptions from mypad4k to myiptv4k.

So now, I am watching myiptv4k everyday. No lagging or delaying. All of the channels especially axtro channels are running smooth. I think I've been using myiptv for 5 years already. Since last time before I buy Evpad 2s, I'm watching myiptv with the streamyx hypptv tvbox. Later that I was bought a evpad 2s, my hypptv tvbox was gave to my aunty. I've been watching with myiptv earlier than evpad before and was compared to many third party IPTV before. That's why in the end, I still prefer to myiptv4k.

Err.. nope. AMLogic is an American tech company that primarily designs and produces various System on Chip (SoC)... Think Intel or AMD, etc.. They aren’t a brand of tv box.. Also, heres a dedicated thread for Android OS, etc powered boxes. There’s tons of info contained in it. I advise you to swing by and arm yourself first. Understand what you be getting into.. I recently posted some videos about the Beelink GS-King X box. You might want to take a look at it too as I go into details and show what can be achieved (legally of course) with a decent box. Check the thread out or links in my signature below..


Evpad is like an Astro decoder.. Except that Astro is 100% legit, while evpad isn’t. Don’t let their marketing fool you either. The SIRIM certification is just for the hardware being “clean”, their software isn’t. IMHO, you should only consider them if you have significant trouble setting up yourself. Normally, I wouldn’t even recommend them.

There got many tvbox outside there but just depends on how fast of your home internet. For me, my home got 500mbps that's why I only pick the tvbox with gigabit LAN. I was bought a cheap X99 Max Plus, the only cons for this tvbox is overheating but not a big deal. So I just put one 12cm fan under the device to cool down the temperature.

Other tvbox you may try to look for H96 Max X3, X96 Max+, HK1 box and others tvbox that within these specs.

I choose X99 Max+ 4GB RAM/64GB storage and the price is RM179. Another H96 Max X3 seems like a better choice too.

Yes. You may ask the seller of the TV Box, whether he will install the relevant app. Some will do it for free, some for a fee.

H96 Max X3 has Root ON/OFF switch, like Tanix tx3 s905x3?
