There are many android boxes.

Even Raspberry Pi can be used to load Kodi with the right video add-on, you can see plenty of english movies/tv

 

Just want to update those who are using Kodi, the magnificent Genesis add-on.

It has been abandoned by the author, but he made a new replacement called Exodus.

Go get it !

hmm...it happen to be the name of the 2nd book of the bible.

I recently got local brand GeekTV android box (no subscription). All good so far. Only downside is it can't support multi channel audio so my AVR need to do the upmix.

Actually its not a subscription at all. I just paid $1xx for the device (a small box) and the rest is all streamed via my fiber broadband. 

 

I am still keeping my Netflix subscription and Mio for now. The android box is mainly to watch movies and back episodes of some TV series like Big Bang, Friends, etc.

HaoHD is currently the most stable at the moment, imo.

 

i've not seen anything better. you can go FB and join "New TV Box SG", they've got a few free IPTVs and paid IPTVs in there.

 

Mine also expiring, thinking of giving the old Unblock Tech Box 3 another go in my living room, before renewing with HaoHD.

really so bad ah? HaoHD is HDTV right? maybe because my "account manager" quite responsive. haha

 

NTVB i only revisit their pinned posts to check if there's any update or new apps to try. or when apps go offline like the recent icdrama situation.

 

I using Unblock Tech's UBTV also, but I find their connection not so good, long buffering in the beginning then a couple hours later, it buffers then freezes, so a bit frustrating.

 

MaigeTV is the best lah... but the best ones all die very fast.

Nope. Haohd is an app, allows channels viewing from some China server.

Quality is average, lag at times. Inconsistent.

There isn't much information on paid iptv, don't know why..somehow it's rather secretive. .

HDTV also an app. I think basically the same servers, but to me HDTV is more consistent. barring some issues with channels like Celestial HD from Malaysia.

 

If you like I can pm you the contacts then you trial and see if it's the same as HaoHD.

 

It's secretive cos China side keeps cracking down on them. so a lot of them have to keep moving servers or shut down business, boh hua for them.

'Rampant' video piracy in Singapore sparks calls for government crackdown: Report

04 Dec 2017 11:39AM (Updated: 04 Dec 2017 11:40AM )

 

SINGAPORE: The popularity of unauthorised streaming of thousands of movies, TV shows and live sporting events in Singapore has triggered calls for a government crackdown, according to a Bloomberg report on Monday (Dec 4).  

Bloomberg said that Singapore is being called a "haven" for pirating copyrighted programming by entertainment companies such as Walt Disney, HBO and the English Premier League.

It added that the Coalition Against Piracy has identified Singapore as the focal point in the entertainment industry’s campaign to curb piracy in the region.

The coalition's 21 members, including divisions of Sony and Twenty-First Century Fox, want the Singapore Government to block the pirating software inside the devices, which are found at local electronics stores and on e-commerce sites such as Lazada.

“Within the Asia-Pacific region, Singapore is the worst in terms of availability of illicit streaming devices,” Mr Neil Gane, general manager of the Asia-focused coalition was quoted as saying, referring to countries where the boxes are considered legal. “They have access to hundreds of illicit broadcasts of channels and video-on-demand content.” he added. 

Ms Lise-Anne Stottm, Singapore-based head of legal for A+E Networks Asia, expressed similar sentiments. 

 

“The piracy here is rampant and shockingly so,” she said. A+E Networks Asia is also a coalition member that offers History, Lifetime and three other channels.

According to London-based Digital TV Research, online TV and movie piracy will cost the industry an estimated US$31.8 billion (S$42.9 billion) in global revenue this year, reaching US$51.6 billion by 2022. The Asia-Pacific region will become the largest for online piracy next year, overtaking North America, the researcher said. 

And according to London-based Muso TNT, Singapore ranked ninth in the number of visits per Internet user to piracy websites. In a separate survey of 1,000 Singaporeans sponsored by Cable and Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia (CASBAA), about 40 per cent said they were active consumers of pirated content.

Bloomberg quoted the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS) as saying: “Copyright infringement is not so much about a device or technology as it is about whether that device or technology is used in a manner that is illegal.

“Users of such devices should therefore ensure that they are accessing content from authorised content providers,” IPOS added. 

The industry’s efforts include lobbying the Singapore Government to eliminate any confusion about legal uses of the devices and to make it easier to take legal action against companies offering pirated content, said Mr John Medeiros, Hong Kong-based chief policy officer for CASBAA, the coalition’s parent organisation.

The coalition also wants Singapore to block streams of illegal content from entering the country, Bloomberg said. In 2016, Singapore blocked a website Solarmovie.ph for offering illegal downloads.

Coalition Against Piracy Wants Singapore to Block Streaming Piracy Software

  • By Andy
  • on December 4, 2017
  • C: 8
News
 

The recently-formed Coalition Against Piracy, which counts Disney, Fox, Sony, HBO, NBCUniversal, BBC Worldwide and the Premier League among its members, is demanding greater action against illicit streaming. The powerful group has called on the government in Singapore to not only block 'pirate' streaming software but also unlicensed streams from entering the country.

 

Earlier this year, major industry players including Disney, HBO, Netflix, Amazon and NBCUniversal formed the Alliance for Creativity and Entertainment (ACE), a huge coalition set to tackle piracy on a global scale.

 

Shortly after the Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) was announced. With a focus on Asia and backed by CASBAA, CAP counts Disney, Fox, HBO Asia, NBCUniversal, Premier League, Turner Asia-Pacific, A&E Networks, BBC Worldwide, National Basketball Association, Viacom International, and others among its members.

 

In several recent reports, CAP has homed in on the piracy situation in Singapore. Describing the phenomenon as “rampant”, the group says that around 40% of locals engage in the practice, many of them through unlicensed streaming. Now CAP, in line with its anti-streaming stance, wants the government to do more – much more.

 

Since a large proportion of illicit streaming takes place through set-top devices, CAP’s 21 members want the authorities to block the software inside them that enables piracy, Straits Times reports.

 

“Within the Asia-Pacific region, Singapore is the worst in terms of availability of illicit streaming devices,” said CAP General Manager Neil Gane.

 

“They have access to hundreds of illicit broadcasts of channels and video-on-demand content.”

 

There are no precise details on CAP’s demands but it is far from clear how any government could effectively block software.

 

Blocking access to the software package itself would prove all but impossible, so that would leave blocking the infrastructure the software uses. While that would be relatively straightforward technically, the job would be large and fast-moving, particularly when dozens of apps and addons would need to be targeted.

 

However, CAP is also calling on the authorities to block pirate streams from entering Singapore. The country already has legislation in place that can be used for site-blocking, so that is not out of the question. It’s notable that the English Premier League is part of the CAP coalition and following legal action taken in the UK earlier this year, now has plenty of experience in blocking streams, particularly of live broadcasts.

 

While that is a game of cat-and-mouse, TorrentFreak sources that have been monitoring the Premier League’s actions over the past several months report that the soccer outfit has become more effective over time. Its blocks can still be evaded but it can be hard work for those involved. That kind of expertise could prove invaluable to CAP.

 

“The Premier League is currently engaged in its most comprehensive global anti-piracy programme,” a spokesperson told ST. “This includes supporting our broadcast partners in South-east Asia with their efforts to prevent the sale of illicit streaming devices.”

In common with other countries around the world, the legality of using ‘pirate’ streaming boxes is somewhat unclear in Singapore. A

 

Bloomberg report cites a local salesman who reports sales of 10 to 20 boxes on a typical weekend, rising to 300 a day during electronic fairs. He believes the devices are legal, since they don’t download full copies of programs.

 

While that point is yet to be argued in court (previously an Intellectual Property Office of Singapore spokesperson said that copyright owners could potentially go after viewers), it seems unlikely that those selling the devices will be allowed to continue completely unhindered. The big question is how current legislation can be successfully applied.

While that is a game of cat-and-mouse, TorrentFreak sources that have been monitoring the Premier League’s actions over the past several months report that the soccer outfit has become more effective over time. Its blocks can still be evaded but it can be hard work for those involved. That kind of expertise could prove invaluable to CAP.

“The Premier League is currently engaged in its most comprehensive global anti-piracy programme,” a spokesperson told ST. “This includes supporting our broadcast partners in South-east Asia with their efforts to prevent the sale of illicit streaming devices.”
In common with other countries around the world, the legality of using ‘pirate’ streaming boxes is somewhat unclear in Singapore. A

Bloomberg report cites a local salesman who reports sales of 10 to 20 boxes on a typical weekend, rising to 300 a day during electronic fairs. He believes the devices are legal, since they don’t download full copies of programs.

While that point is yet to be argued in court (previously an Intellectual Property Office of Singapore spokesperson said that copyright owners could potentially go after viewers), it seems unlikely that those selling the devices will be allowed to continue completely unhindered. The big question is how current legislation can be successfully applied.

What are they targetting ?

Boxes ?

Boxes are not illegal. It's only hardware.

When does it bcom illegal ?

When you load a certain "illegal" software or when the software start to stream from "illegal" sources ?

 

Computers can stream from "illegal" source, does it make computer illegal ?

 

Just bcuz Sgporeans buy the most boxes doesn't necessary make it the most rampant in video piracy.

 

If they really want to clamp down, go clamp down on the "illegal" streaming sources.

We are in a time whereby digital entertainment is simply overflowing. There's no way one person can consume so much content. If something is too expensive like premier league, then simply just don't watch lor. There are plenty of other things to watch or do with your time...

Like YouTube, gamers can watch streamed games, walkthroughs or girls can watch make up videos lol... Sounds silly and stupid but all these take up people's attention
