iTalkBB China IPTV Service Review
We tried this service and it was completely smooth. The user interface was completely in Chinese, but easy to use and navigate, just like our apps we recommend for an android TV box.
With this China-based TV service, you need to buy the device for a one-time cost along with the package you want.
The channels we played were all in HD, and most importantly the channels are completely legal to be played in Canada. The quality was smooth and the server was stable, with no buffer.
We also loved the video-on-demand collection that had a lot of movies and TV dramas for binge-watching. Along with this, we loved the 72 hours catch-up feature to watch the news or Chinese gala which we may miss during the day.
Overall we loved the internet TV service by iTalk BB and it seems like a decent service, given its economical pricing.
