    There are several sellers on sites like eBay and Amazon depending on what country you're in.

    I have TVB's own TVB Anywhere box - a fully licensed legit subscription box review in the works, will be posted here soon. You could wait for this t come out before making a decision.

    Has anyone heard of Blue TV? I was in a Video&Sound store at the Pacific Centre Mall in Calgary and the shop I bought my father's TVPad2 a couple of years ago is now selling Moonbox3 and Blue TV as the new option to TVPad. They are charging $329 for Blue TV and $300 for MoonBox3 which is much more than what I paid for the TVPad2.

    I am living in Melbourne and I had TVpad2 and TVpad3 which until late 2015 had been working well. In Nov 2015, I had to change the DNS and managed to get both units working. From early Jan 2016, the TVPad3 had stopped working completely but TVpad 2 still worked with direct feed from TVB ( ? For how long more)
    Bought Htv3 from Hong Kong when I was there early Jan and it has been working well with excellent picture quality although there is a slight sound delay. There are also sports channels for NBA and soccer from UK, Spain and Italy plus recent movies release. So far so good for HK$2650. I was told the servers are located in the Middle East, not sure what difference that would make.

    Fundamentally all pirated TV streams will get shut down at some point, so just be aware before you make any big purchases as the piracy boxes are all quite expensive.

    I'm in the middle of my review for TVBAnywhere - which is fully licensed although there is a subscription cost. I'm very impressed with the service as it's very fast and easy to use and comes with customer support. Once the review is put together I'll be posting on this website. Unfortunately short delay as we are moving house, but hopefully will be complete within the next 2 weeks.

    Can't wait till your TVBAnywhere review comes out, curious! Meanwhile, could you also review h.TV?

    I can't comment on Moonbox as I am using HTV3. I paid extra for the sport channels and there are EPL, La Liga, French, German and Italian football. There are all from different channels of BEIN sports channels. Commentary are in English and what sounded to me like Arabic.

    I bought my H.tv3 when I was in Hong Kong early January in Shamshiupo Golden Arcade. There were one without the sport mode ( the app is called Tom's sport) and one with. I think you can download the app but it needs an unlocking code. Don't know where you can pay for the unlocking code.
    So far, everything is working well.
    What does UCL stands for?

    Lucky you. i was dying to watch it too but couldn't.

    I emailed H.TV3 and asked them about "Tom's sport" and they didn't know anything about this app. do you have any more info on this app or have contact details for the shop you bought it from? im thinking all the commentary for games are not in english??

    sorry for all the Q's and i appreciate your responses

    I have the Moonbox 3 and the iLive Hk app doesn't seem to work anymore. Can someone confirm? Is there any other app that I can use to watch live HK channels on it? If not, then what other IPTV boxes should I consider?

    I fixed this issue for my in-laws this weekend. If your iLive HK channel doesn't work, you have to uninstall the app, and then go to App Garden and download it again (search for 1111HK). This applies to several apps that have stopped working.

    There are a couple of new apps that do great HK TV streaming on Moonbox, worth trying the (one beginning with B which I've forgotten the name of).
