    I am hearing about this device---i even see that it is for sale through Amazon but I know very little about it. Does anyone here know anything about the box, the services you can subscribe to, the content available, and whether it is legal in the US?

    I am not sure that I understand your reply. Do you have any information about the product that you would like to share?

    it's just a device to catch streaming, if you subscribe to some streaming service LEGALLY - it's legal, otherwise - not

    your initial questions sort of ... look around how many companies on the market: Roku, WD, etc

    I would go to Chinese sites, there are more chances to get the answers ...

    The article you referenced has quite a bit of information, but unfortunately I would stay away since the companies own website wont launch at least from my ISP. We have proven products available in this country, like recommended above, I would go with one of those instead since this company seems a little suspect with so little information. If they had Netflix, Youtube, etc...you would think they would have had it listed in their article.

    The intent of the thread was to seeif anyone knew about what chinese services this box iss et up for---whether they have as much US content as the article suggests and if they do is the box legal the US (and the same for subbing to Chinese services since often rights are only held in some countries) . It was a shot in the dark.
