  1. My Netflix on X88pro10…“Netflix is no longer available on this device…”
    Anything I can do?

    Just better off swapping to a cheap, modern box - like the Onn 4K for $20.

  3. Thanks but it`s not available outside the USA. Looking for a cheap Chinese box, I dont really want another Fire Stick. Just something for Netflix & Kodi

  4. Chromecast with Google TV is available in Germany and it is not expensive at all. I highly suggest buying that over a China box. My experience with most China boxes in the past haven’t been good. A lot of them have heat sink issues causing the box to overheat and freeze the video you are streaming . Good luck :crossed_fingers:

  5. I dont really want to cast from the mobile, I want a stand-alone device. And something that works well with Kodi
