Customer Review

on February 28, 2013
So rather than have to play exorbitant $$ for monthly services from Fios/Cable/DTV/ or Dish for Chinese Channels. I decided to try the TVPad 2.

For Mandarin Channels, Korean and Japanese content this is definitely a great product as there are over 90+ apps spanning different genres of movies, tv, dramas to watch.

There seems to be a lack of content for Cantonese content, and hopefully these will be resolved in the future. There are literally only 2 apps (1 for Dramas, and 1 for Live TV). BOTH do not cover TVB content which my mother in law wanted to watch.

There seems to be a way to install 2-3 more apps but its all in Chinese so will need my wife to co-pilot and figure out what to do (havent done this yet) for Cantonese content.

Luckily the Mom in Law is ok in watching mandarin content too, so this is keeping her entertained.

The difference between this and Kylin is no monthly fees AND the hardware is much better Bar None. I've tried kylin, the hardware is buggy (constant reboots) and wifi stinks.

Wifi wise its fast (as long as you have the right router that meets the faster feed specs), or just go with the tried and true Ethernet cable, content is abundant, and streams come down fairly fast. I use fios in the new york area, and dont get alot of stalls ( a few here and there ) but streams are pretty good so far overall.

Summary is, hardware is solid, apps are delivering content as promised, and pretty much will pay for itself in 4-5 months(maybe sooner) when compared to the alternative packages from Direct TV (to get the equal amount of channels and content).
