Netflix, showmax streamer
« on: November 12, 2020, 07:35:09 AM »
Hi

I use a ps4 for video streaming and it works perfectly. My parents want Netflix and Showmax, what is easy to use (remote, nice ui) and trouble free?

TV is only 720p so 4k is not a requirement.

Look into Mi TV Box S. Very user friendly.

I'd go Ematic AGT419.

It is 4K but at really not too much of a premium.

It's probably the best locally available Android TV available

Telkom LIT box, daughter is 3 and she operates the damn thing - Voice-controlled search as well, so you don't need to scroll through an annoying onscreen keyboard  :flyswat:

Xiomi Mi Box S 4K R1,200,00 at Takealot now. Great 4K Streamer. Very easy to add apps.
I have two of them. The only complaint is sometimes after periods of a few days of no use you have to unplug the power cable and reinsert to get them to boot.

Apple TV is very good. Nividia Shield? Amazon Prime is better then showmax.

Thanks for all the advice, ended up going with the Xiaomi, it seems to tick the right boxes in terms of price and function.

You can also try the Amazon Fire Stick or the Fire Stick 4k.
Can get it for good prices on Black Friday.
