Amazon TV and Apple TV you have to pay to watch everything.
Im gonna gamble and buy a skystreamx, i called the number on there website and its the actual owner of the companies cell phone number. He said if i have any problems at all to call him and he'll fix it personally. Pretty rare to call a number listed on a site and get a human, let alone the owner. Ill post a review a few days after it comes in the mail.
I do not think it means what you think it means
I watch plenty for free on mine. Frankly this post looks like astroturf for skystreamx. Let's hope members see it.
I was under the impression apple tv was like ala carte and you paid for everything individually ? I guess i was wrong... i dunno what astro turf means but i dont work at skystream if thats what youre implying lol
Over the last few months
I watched all the http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek:_Enterprise for free on the Amazon Kindle Fire over HDMI to the HDTV. Last month I upgraded to the Amazon Fire TV and it's very very nice.
What's on Amazon Prime could keep folk watching for years. Those android boxes rarely get such a library and the owners gripe to me about video encoding issues. With the Apple TV you can place your stuff in iTunes and play over and over.
I'm not doubting there is a good android box but having tried a handful, I really enjoy the latest offerings from Amazon and Apple.
Bob hits the play button.
The 1channel app and icefilms had pretty much every movie and tv show episode for everything made after 1975... i dont use any iproducts, i dont think they are worth the ridiculous prices, my brother had an android, got an iphone for christmas and used it for about a year and a half, and he just bought the new galaxy and says he loves it and will never buy an apple product as long as android exists. Im somewhat skeptical of the skystream box just being exactly the same as the G box but the guy swore the boxes are professionally programmed by team elite mods florida and are superior to the g box. I hope he wasnt lying to get a sale cuz im on a pretty tight budget and cant afford to buy a 150 dollar paperweight... if its a piece of **** im gonna be pissed.
Here that i-model is 99 bucks.
Doesn't seem out of line to me. Same price for the Amazon Fire TV.
I take it you haven't used these products.
I havent used em, i have regular cable but i saw the gbix in action at my friends house and it didnt look to hard using a wireless keyboard with a finger mouse pad on it. Does amazon cost anything a month ?
By asking that question I take it that
You have more research to do. At this time there is no monthly fee as Amazon Prime is included with the sale.
These boxes don't cost much and frankly the remote and UX is top notch. I'd be duplicating the web if I wrote more but I have used raw android boxes, the 2 I noted above so for me I can't imagine a better experience.
I take it you haven't used the SkystreamX4
The preconfigured XBMC setup really does help- there are literally thousands of add-ons that would take tons of time to research, install, configure, and fix (because there are invariably unstable apps). People get into trouble when they are not familiar with XBMC and they tinker under the hood. I've had my X4 for 2 months now, I tinkered and got burned, the Elite Mods team fixed it for me, and now I've been good. I don't tinker anymore- I follow the Elite Mods and SkystreamX facebook pages and follow their instructions when something needs to be added or updated. Do that, and you're golden.
It's been months.
I find that model has too much spammed so much.
G-box, M8, minix, skystream are all pretty similar
The new G-box q has more RAM, but they are all pretty much the same with the same chipset and connection ports. In fact, I see no difference at all between the SkystreamX4 and the M8. The M8 is a raw android box, with XBMC but no XBMC addons installed (except maybe basic).The X4 is pre-configured with a bunch of pretty reliable addons that let you watch just about anything. The X4 boxes also come with other apps pre-installed (showbox, hd cinema, mobdro, and cartoon HD) that are similar to XBMC but don't require the tweaking. The drawback to the android boxes is that they are mini-pcs that requires occassional tweaking (e.g. clearing the cache) and sometimes the servers go down. With the Apple and Roku products, there is no maintenance, and the interface is much more intuitive. I think you will be disappointed with the Apple or Roku box.
Don't buy SkyStream... a waste of money.
SkyStream is fake. It doesn't work at all.
amazon has alot of selection
Yes, amazon prime does have alot of selection, but most of it is not free, it is ala cart as R. Proffitt stated. The Skystream obliterates both Netflix and Amazon for content, and the most up to date offerings in both TV and movies.
That's been spammed.
Please avoid spamming in threads like this.
elite mods team service
From personal experience the Elite Mods team will log into your box and fix whatever. And they respond to their emails pretty quickly... like always same day, sometimes within minutes, sometimes an hour or so.
Some OTT box with added APKs plays as IPTV+ OTT
Amazon TV and Apple TV are IPTVs?
You can watch free films from the Internet.
Regarding android tv box
Satechi Smart TV Box ... The best one available is presently the Roku Streaming Stick, which is basically a more modest ... Best Android TV Box.
Do NOT buy SKYSTREAM. WARNED
It doesn't work period. The box looks really good. But you will spend the life of the longest movie ever made to find a link that streams. When you eventually find it, it breaks. Tons and tons of movies and shows are listed but will never play. Buy it only if have nothing better to do with your $200. You will get more fun tearing your bills into tiny pieces and throwing them up in the air.
While the hardware is ok, there is no incentive for the software hackers to rip movies and provide free shows while constantly updating dead links that are referenced by the box. The good reviews are fake. See the complaints of buyers on the SKYSTREAM facebook page. I once complained that the box doesn't work and they blacklisted me from the FB page. I have the box. The remote control only works within 6 feet. I once watched a movie there and it was great but upon looking for the same movie, the link is dead. Who has time to keep searching thru hundreds of links for one link that will play? DON'T CUT YOUR CABLE YET. If you buy it make sure you can return it if it doesn't work for you.
