=======================================================
WHY GET THIS???

or get it from Amazon.com like I did thru this company:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product...UTF8&psc=1

At Amazon there was 3 different vendor that sells the same brand DoLaMee players so I don't know what is the difference.

Okay all, what is the big deal about this player that is different from other KODI players that you can sideloaded KODI into like onto FireTV, FIreStick, or other Android OS devices?

Here is my old guide for sideloading onto the FireTV or FireStick:
https://slickdeals.net/f/7394514-confirmed-amazon-fire-tv-stick-can-be-sideload-with-kodi-tvmc-version-updated-may-25-2016?v=1

The different is not at the KODI part (that has the latest KODI 16.1 installed already thou) but added function/features to the device and remote where there is a quick access button for the Cloud TV application (by Wen TV version WTV-ABS-20160812) and a KODI button. This is where the prize is hidden! It is just one Android app that has all of the 100+ Asian Channels you can think of. Just for Chinese TV channels it has over 90 plus. I added them to the favorite folder for my parent.

I purchase as a gift for my Chinese parent as the Amazon FireTV sideloaded with KODI is always having issue for all of the Chinese channels going out or missing. They called me monthly for help to fix it. Using the FreTV is just too complex for my elderly parent and teaching them to fix it via FaceTime is a nightmare and tons of wasted hours.

By having them push the "Cloud TV" remote button and it loads the Cloud TV application that allow them to pick it by area in country, language, or genre (movies, shows, sports, etc). All the channels loads up very quickly within 5 sec or less depend on your connection speed. All of the Chinese channels I tested only 3 channels has issues with it out of 90 with 87 channels running smoothly and no buffer issues.

The cool thing about using this Cloud TV is it manage by Wen TV company instead of by different KODI channel servers. Wen TV seems to have two areas servers from EU and Asia (you can set the selection in the setting inside the app) that push the live channels. They also have some cable American channels as well too.

Once I get home I can upload the pictures of the Chinese 90 channels along with the apk link or file you can install in any Android device. I installed it on my Moto G4 Plus and LG tablet that ran smoothly.

If any of you guys have question let me know and I will try to best help you. Again, this is by far the best media player especially if you have old Asian parent who is not tech challenge. Sorry, I don't think they have an iPad Cloud TV by Wen TV.

Hi,

It should...... I have not sideload it. It does have Google Play. If you can't sideload you can go via installing it inside the KODI program for the Amazon Prime Video player app. You will need to have an Prime account to sign-in to see the Amazon Videos.

Sorry about it it does give two option for the standard of 1GB ram and 8GB or double it. But I had the standard and it was quick enough. If you guys do get it from GB make sure you choice the US version plug and not the other countries unless you live in that area.

I don't know what you talking about. I just got my early last week it work wonderfully without issues. Did you get the same brand and model? You have setup your WiFi or LAN NIC and update the application first.

Like I said, You can get all of those live channels for free as it offered once I give you guys the link to get the Cloud TV apk file from Wen TV. To my understanding it is different from other "Cloud TV" named Android app on the Google Play store.

The cloud TV app used to be very good. Most of the channels were watchable. Now, most of the channels are unwatchable.

I agree with you that the Dolamee android tv box is a good box. Comparing it to other android tv boxes in terms of picture quality, the dolamee box produces brighter and deeper color picture, at least that is what I see on my 720p plasma tv. Maybe it is because it uses the Rockchip 3229 CPU. Most of the other android tv boxes use the Amlogic CPU (amlogic 905 or amlogic 905x).
