LakersFanatic, on the XBMC for Android TV, do you have to add 1Channel, IceFilms, etc.etc...?
And how good is the quality when streaming live sports events?
This is the same thing?
I contacted that company because I wanted it cheaper as well. However, here are the differences.
One is in Hong Kong, and you will probably wait 30-40 days for it to arrive. That, and you will pay shipping. Also, it doesn't include a remote or the configuration. You will need to install XBMC, Skype and all the other apps, and then configure XBMC with your favorite addons.
The one I bought is pre-configured with all the best addons, including 1Channel and IceFilms. It is based in LA. I'm in montreal and waited 2 days. You could probably get it overnight if you're in the states lol. It came with a full keyboard/mouse remote which is very good quality. The one I got, you plug into the TV and you're good to go.
The Chinese one, you pay barely less once you consider shipping. You wait a lot longer. and once you get it, will need to configure it completely which could takes hours if you don't know what you're doing.
As for the live sports, I won't say it's HD because it isn't lol. But it's more that decent and varies depending on your link. Same quality you would see on your computer. The machine itself supports 1080P, so if you get a 1080P link, then it will be in HD. However you won't find a free stream in HD lol, but it really isn't bad. Pretty good for free sports on your TV
