One of my friends bought 小米盒子 (Mi) in HK and brought it back to me to compare with TVPad. I actually think 小米盒子 is not bad but I want to summarize the difference:
1) Cheap ~ roughly you can get one for $50-70 USD in HK
2) Lots of apps you can install for HK, TW, CN movies, TV, Sports, Games, etc

爸爸去哪兒 (第二季) (Where Are We Going, Dad) is updated every Friday in BETV2 app on 湖南衛視
The first episode is updated in the Voice of China App and the latest one is updated every Friday on BETV2 app (淅江衞視). Enjoy!
While TVPad is totally down, you can still use iPlayer to watch World Cup.
Using iPlayer also can watch World Cup matches on TVB Paid Channel (無線體育台), so you will not miss any match!
I know a lot of people are trying to watch World Cup Playback(粵海寬頻2_3) from TVB these 2 days and we notice that some people can’t watch the playback. They see the “spinning” image keeps loading and there are no programs afterward. Actually it does work, and all you need to do is to click “left and right” on the remote to switch the tab. It should load the playback programs afterward.
Also, whenever you see something wrong, always restart TVPad and it should be fixed after.
