With shipping,  from above site,  you would pay about half of the local cost.
Takes about a week to get here.

cool so setup now, have 100mb fibre line, through WebAfrica (waiting a move to VOX due to poor network performance), have a Mi box (loaded LiveTV net, redboxTV terrariumTV, showmox, DSTV now) and just upgraded my router to this bad boy after mucking around with smaller ones enough was enough. good online deals can get this for a steal.

AC1900 Wireless Dual Band Gigabit Router
Archer C9

    Supports 802.11ac standard-the next generation of Wi-Fi
    Simultaneous 2.4GHz 600Mbps and 5GHz 1300Mbps connections for 1.9Gbps of total available bandwidth
    3 dual band detachable antennas provide maximum omni-directional wireless coverage and reliability
    Beamforming technology delivers highly efficient wireless connection
    1GHz dual-core processor ensures no interruption when simultaneously processing multiple wireless or wired tasks
    USB 3.0 + USB 2.0 Ports - easily share a printer locally and files & media with networked devices or remotely via FTP server

so far what i find is through LiveTV net you can get proper HD streaming from sky, but no dedicated rugby channel / show as far as i can see. the Australian FOX network only has the news segment available, and no New Zealand stuff (i think they use UK tv feeds). ESPN 3 is apparently a good rugby channel but also not available for streaming. so can get away with live games but not as spoil with the editing and presentation. its live game or nothing at all. no catch up or review shows that i can find. anyone else have ideas?

All very complex.

We simplify - my fiancee downloads latest movies from some sort of free streaming site onto her S7 galaxy. Then screen mirror in HD to the TV. It works perfectly, and it's free.  :thumleft:

My MyGica box is KAK. It was geting kakker and kakker and then I upgraded to os. But now it's even slower and really KAK. I've threatened to moer it with a 5 pound hammer, but the Cow calmed me down...

So I took a spare PC, loaded Bluestacks and Mobdro, etc. on it, and Viola, we have tv again! Only snag is the lack of wi-fi on the pc, but a network cable to the router sorts that out.

Until I got up for another beer. The cable suddenly stopped working for some reason.... so now I don't have tv anymore until I get connected again...
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

I use those little plug in usb wifi dongles. A bit pricey but work great.

Fok was julle nie soos laas week nog op vakansie by die see nie?
The three things you need to fix anything in the universe: duct tape, WD-40 and a hammer.  If it moves and it shouldn't, use the duct tape.  If it doesn't move and it should, use the WD-40.  Otherwise use the hammer.

Hi Dogs.
Using a Minx box works well with all apps.
Just getting slow.
In the market for a new box. H96 the best now?
Buddy of mine got the Telkom LIT box. Can upload everything except Mobdro.
Any dog got a fix to upload Mobdro on LIT box.
Thanks!
