A Great Entry Level Streaming Box

I've bought four of these now for friends and family and have to say they're really good. They just need an HDMI to plug into your TV and run Android TV 8.1 while connecting to your wireless. This essentially turns your TV into an Android TV with the ability to install anything off the Google Playstore (youtube, spotify, sparksport, TVNZ On Demand, Netflix, VPN's, Prime etc etc). This is unlike the Vodafone TV box which is restricted to certain NZ TV apps and is more expensive. I originally tried the 'SmartVU 4K Ultra HD TV Dongle' as well and found the hardware far too slow with lagging and delayed menus and picture. The Mi Box S completely...view more

Don't get for Spark sport

If your after android TV works well easy set up, however the way that used to work on this to set up Spark sport (a workaround) no longer works (can not install the app directly) so if this is why your looking at this product do not get this one the SmartVU (also sold by PBTECH) works though.

If not want spark sport product works great.

Great product the family uses now

Had it for about a month. Work well for streaming Netflix, YouTube, Disney+. Easy to cast from smart phones too. Works with my external hard drive too so I can view movies form there aswell.
Set up took a bit of effort, but worth it. Very happy with it.

Works great

After my Apple TV box was affected by the Apple software update that causes all older Apple TV boxes to freeze when you pause YouTube, I switched to the Android box.
The MI box means I can download New Zealand TV3 and TVNZ apps and run local content as well as Netflix, Amazon Prime etc.
The picture quality is really good (4K) compared to the Apple (720p).
The remote is much better too, and I can also run a VPN to get a wider range of content.
I could only suggest one way to improve the product and that would be to add a small light to appear when it is on.

Advice for those buying for Sky Sport

I found this device to be a lot faster and reliable than my previous device (Smart VU). However, a big reason I purchased it was for the sideloaded SkyGo app which does not work very well at all. The app displays sideways, so you have to sideload another app to change it to landscape view. Second, the video didn't even work as I received an error every time I tried to stream a channel. Eventually, I gave up, and decided to cast from my phone - was hoping this device would allow me to not have to do this anymore. So other than the unreliable sideloaded apps (will not bother trying again), this device does work pretty well.
