Hello,

apologies for posting right after joining.

I've been reading the forum's and was wondering on some input.

I'm interested in a few android TV sticks, and i am wondering if any one has one that successfully works with sky go out of the box?

if so could they recommend the model?, so i would buy this on peoples findings.

a couple of models i have seen are the cx919 and the mk808, but from reading here it looks like they are not compatible with sky go.


any input would be greatly appreciated.


kind regards

Apologies im not sure were this direct question would go in which sub forum?

Most android sticks come 'ROOTED' out of the box which apps such as Sky go don't like. So unless you can 'unRoot' your device in a way (apparently there are multiple ways to unroot) that would be compatible w/ Sky go you have very limited options.

any recommendations will depend on how much you want to spend and the form factor u need...I have a MK802III (dual-core, 1 GB Ram, Mali400 GPU)...pretty good for normal usage....

If you can spend upto $120 you can get a quad core, 2 GB stick such as MK802IV which should be almost twice as fast the one I have...

Also the android TV devices comes in two form factors - a TV stick with HDMI male port which goes straight into your TV and the other is a box form where you have a small box with cables flying out to your TV.

I personally prefer the TV sticks which are more compact and save on already cluttered TV backsides..

Cheers,

I'm also keen to know which of these work best for Sky Go (and how best to unroot / mask root).
