Does this have sport on especially premier league

Bought this model a couple of weeks ago.
Not good,runs Android TV rom,not mice to use,mine arrived with broken power supply,heartbeat who are normally OK ,won't help.Tanix mini 3 is a easier to use box,I have a couple of those ,normally around 23 quid.

Does it do 4K Netflix and Amazon Video?

If you put it on it will

Kodi pre installed,supposed to handle 4k Netflix but running Android TV rom means every input in play store, YouTube, Netflix has to be typed letter by letter with remote control not a mouse,mouse input disabled on certain apps,it's a pain.Also some apps are incompatible as it runs Android TV,not plain old Android,I'll be looking for a new rom for mine.
Hope this helps.

This item has been posted at around this price several times before - once by me (I have this box).

Lots of information about the box on the previous threads.

I Have this too. The only drawback I Have found is that it is incompatible with Amazon Video. If anyone knows a work around please, I would be grateful.

Got it to work on mine by installing Prime video from Aptoide.

My version 3.0.212.4841 - which you can get from here prime-video.en.aptoide.com/?st…ore if you click "Other Versions"

See comments on this thread hotukdeals.com/dea…728 Chocci could not get it to work on his box but he has an earlier model.

Nope, this version does not have Widevine Level 1 DRM or HDCP 1.x certification. You'll see Netflix in 480p. There's a version of this box with the 'L' suffix which does have these certifications, but I have not seen it on sale yet.

Whats the best site to visit to find out how to do esoteric things with this box?

Wrong, you'll get Netflix in HD with this box.

There's a ROM on Freaktab that fixes a lot of these problems. Not the Android TV one, obviously, although that one is still better than the pre-installed ROM (which is appalling)

Cheers,will take a look,bought it for daughter for Xmas,so it's wrapped up.It works well enough,though I had to sort my own power supply.Its just a little clunky to use,I hate using remote controls,switching between mouse and remote is just too annoying.
Cheers again.

Get one of these.. ebay.co.uk/itm…zfu

Can get cheaper if prepared to wait for delivery from China.

I have that remote for another android box, it sucks a fat one.

I don't know but you can put the youtube app on the box and watch it direct.

Thanks mate. Doing just that at the mo. Adding to a playlist on the phone and playing it on the device.

If the M8S Pro+ could do this like a Chromecast, I could take the Chromecast off and free up a much needed HDMI port.
