+1 for don't rely on your smart TV for "smarts" over the long term.

(Android TV perhaps being an exception as apps will endure beyond the life of the TV OS).

I likewise have a Shield and Mi Box ($90NZD) and only recently installed Matt Huismans Kodi Addons and they really are very good. ie. All NZ and Aus channels via IPTV - incl an EPG.

AND NZ OnDemand Addons.

AND LightBox, Fanpass and hopefully soon a SkyGo Addon.

Highly recommended.


Oh yeah and as both of these streamers are AndroidTV based you can do a truck load more.



Heads up, the sky go addon for sports only is up now and working
