If one has no interest in receiving any UK channels other than the free-to-air ones available using the FilmOn website/app (either via a Smart TV or a tablet) what are the benefits of rigging up one of these boxes ? Is it all to do with obtaining a UK IP address so that streams can be downloaded from source rather than via third party site such a FilmOn ? Is it more efficient than FilmOn in terms of bandwidth ? Or is it purely to get loads of Sky channels etc ? I guess at £30 it's a no-brainer to have one anyway just to get the extra channels but I am curious if there's any upside to owning a box above and beyond this. Thanks for any replies.
Many thanks for the detailed reply John.I already have the Mobdro app on my tablet but so far have found FilmOn to be more stable for basic live free-to-air streaming. But no doubt others will have different experiences. From what you say it sounds like the upside to a Kodi box over a tablet is a lot more content both live and on demand. It sounds like the downside is another layer of complexity and a certain amount of filtering out the dross. It's clearly a no brainer for £30.But I don't sense that one of these boxes is any more stable or is somehow able to use less bandwidth via more advanced file compression techniques than the more traditional tablet approach which would be a really useful feature for me. Can anyone comment on these aspects ? Increased stability at lower bandwidths is more valuable to me than millions of extra channels as I just want simplicity, stability and reliability. Does a Kodi box have any advantages over a tablet in this regard ?Any recommendations on which box I should buy. Will buy in the UK and bring it out in hand luggage. Thanks.Cheers, Ernie
