but when you try playing any live TV you get an error that you need Bell internet (resellers dont work).
They have it right in the release notes.

Requirements:
- Mobile TV clients must subscribe to a Mobile TV feature add-on.
- Alt TV clients must subscribe to select Internet packages.
- Available on unmodified Android 4.2 or newer.
- Clients using Android TV must subscribe to Bell unlimited Internet and be in-home to access content on these devices.

Thanks, didn't go through the release notes, do you know if the same condition applies to apple TV? Friend is planning on buy a couple appleTVs and using the Fibe app, doesn't have bell internet, would save him the time having to return them

I have a feeling the same condition would apply, a "fail safe" set by bell to ensure you don't share fibeapp with friends/family to use on the big screen as you can't cast from phone or tablet.

I too have the Netflix error (purchased from Walmart last year). Buyer beware!
Bought mine from Asia - never an issue. Works great.

It's more related to the TV (How mibox likes the HDCP key on the TV to be more specific) than where the mibox came from.

For anyone with a TV that the mibox doesn't like the "tested and verified" solution is to use an HDCP converter.

Good luck

Nope, Terrarium has Android TV support. You can use the remote to navigate.

There are tons of apks for everything (outside Google's play store), that's why Android rules. F iOS.
http://www.docsquiffy.com/downloads/ (get the Terrarium modded APK). The latest is also modded to not force their video player on you, just use the builtin Exoplayer.

Terrarium: http://www.docsquiffy.com/download-terr ... back-link/
I also recommend http://www.docsquiffy.com/download-uktvnow-ad-free/ for Live TV.
Have these links all been taken off docsquiffy? Any new sources or websites that you would recommend to download apks...
