Just wanted to ask if there was an update on VOD, like when they're gonna update the content or come out with a new app.

Do you ask them in Chinese, English, or google translated Chinese?
I did it in english. But they'll response in chinese. I'd suppose they would google translate on their end to understand what you're saying.

My reply was to Shu regarding TVB Anywhere not hrsj800
Thanks, just using hrsj for live stream, but want to know what others are using so I know alternatives are available and what to expect

That sucks that you pay for monthly subscription than extra for each vod

Current owner of the old Moonbox M3 (black), I can't find any app that can get TVB VOD's anymore, so I had to come back to this thread to see what people are up to.

Paid 1 cent for the hrsj300 app trial and so far so good, are these guys updating VOD's? When I load the VOD screen it doesnt seem to load pictures of the series'.

Edit: nm I found someone saying these guys are slow in VOD updates... better for live TV.... anybody know of a good app right now that can fetch VOD's reliably right now? Ever since I tried the cat head app which crapped out and then the teal movie icon app which also doesn't seem to work recently, I'm not sure what else to use.

Also can't find the Canadian TVB channel as someone else mentioned here. My cantonese reading is pretty garbage so I can't be of much help to myself lol.
vod is up but hasnt been updated in a month. they said their making another app for vod separately but no definite date. I asked 3 weeks ago and was told "soon"

That mean the Serer not provide services, you can't open the box, and need to pay US$15.00 for services

Noticed it too, the yellow message on the front, something about 15 USD per year to continue using the set top.

Dont know how I feel about paying 15 USD per year to use my old turd M3 box, I might as well just use my new Mi box I got from the US and pay only for hrsj.

But you can still use it like an Android box right? ie, I use it to watch hrj800.

The box can be open even without network connection. What service is their server providing?

Just saw it too, basically sounds like your box wouldn't even work without paying the fee but I call it BS.

No one is able to use their apps now for a while so looks like is their way to try to get more money. If it stops working I would whether pay money to get another box, the specs on the moonbox sucks anyways.
