Need a bit of help on which TV box android to get to use in NZ. Looking at the rveal, 3rd or 4th gen Also MINIX-NEO-U9-H-S912 but this seems to have trouble upgrading to lastest android. Basically looking to cancel sky, and want a reliable streamer for sports Does anyone have either of these or have any other recommendations? Thanks,

I have been using a couple of meecool m8s pro plus ($50ish) for IPTV and Kodi, they work perfectly without any crashes.The best android box would be nvidia shield but if its just for iptv checkout these models Formuler z+7,DreamLink T2 and Buzz tv 3000.

Ive talked about this in the past.... I'm a fan of the MiBox 3. True Android TV and a good remote.  Only Android TV 6 - but works for me.  I believe MiBox are about to release a 4 so might be worth waiting for that. MiBox software upgrades are few and far between which is a big negative.  Overall.....I still rate it.  I dont have a 4K TV which, if you do, may be a consideration as apparently the performance is "so so" (works great for some...fails others from what I hear).
