Hi,

I am new to this Mi Box and would like to get your inputs please before I get 1. I am actually contemplating on getting this or the Amazon Firestick (rooted) or UBox but Im leaning on the Mi Box. Hope someone can assist me.

1. Do I need to install something on the Mi Box if I want access to free movies, series, tv shows? What do I need to install?
2. Do I need to subscribe to a VPN server to be able to access sites that are not available?

I have backread the thread but some terms are jargons for me. Too old for it. :)

TIA.

best is you ping those IP and see which one has the lowest latency

I don't use VPN. I subscribe to Netflix & Iflix.

For other stuff.. it's possible but I can't talk about that here (forum rules). Safe to say almost every answer is available on youtube.

ok sa mga naka getflix. here are the IPs which i tested so you dont have to experiment. obviously, SG and JP regions are the fastest - PING / latency test only.


54.164.176.2   240x - us east
169.55.51.86   180x - us central
54.187.61.200   200x - us west
54.251.190.247   55x - sg
119.9.73.44   170x - hk
106.186.22.8   70x - jp
103.241.150.100    80x - my

SG > JP > MY > others


Note: latency varies on your ISP's route. Im using pldt fiber.

These are the DNS servers I use.  Sa aking yung ping results ko with my ISP.  The  lower the latency the better.
If your router supports more than 3 slots for DNS servers much better to populate them.
HK - 119.9.73.44 - 40ms ping
SG - 54.251.190.247 - 50ms ping
JP - 106.186.22.8 -70ms ping

I have installed the Getflix subscription code. Now, I am going to change my router, if I cannot solve the wifi issues with my Asus Router RT-18u. Lan connection is good but not the wifi. Should I change my router, would it affect my Getlflix subscription?

There should be no problems if you change routers.  As long as you have the Getflix DNS to your new router, and  perfrom a  force IP update on the getflix dashboard then you're good.

You can check out NBC, Crackle, ABC and Fox now. But Sideloading is needed.
Fox NOW - use the v2.10.5 for leanback support https://goo.gl/mzf78s
Crackle - for leanback version https://goo.gl/a5J1Rj
NBC - leanback version https://goo.gl/mvHXYs
ABC - leanback version https://goo.gl/pwVX7Y

BTW, you'll also have access to BBC iplayer app though walang leanback support so you need a mouse to navigate.. I tried the ones from nvidia shield its not currently working.

Fox Now, ABC, and NBC have lots of free available contents to stream.. there are some that are locked.
Crackle is completely free.. :)

Leanback apps are remote and gamepad friendly apps for the android tv OS.
Almost all the apps sa playstore ng android tv os are leanback apps.

While my wifey was watching Netflix it stopped and showed "You seem to be using an unblocker or proxy".  I am using Getflix.

Common issue with smart dns and vpn providers , particularly Netflix . The difference is the restoration speed and length of outage each service provides..
