Quick Start Guide

Bundle deals expire when stock runs out. T&Cs apply

The remote control draws power out of batteries even when not in use. Cost me 3 sets of batteries in 3 days. Returned it.

NO NETFLIX. Tried out this box, no Netflix support (Netflix doesn't work on the box's version of Android, and they have disabled the ability to customise). It's AndroidTV light at best.

Overall Happy with the unit. But please note it doesn't support Netflix out of the box and Dolby Sound settings is not remembered when you power cycle the. DSTV & Showmax runs like a dream

Nice looking unit, user interface is quite nice too but if you want a box that can also play Netflix and Prime Video, this is not the one for you.
Nowhere in the description does it mention its not compatible with Netflix. Yes, there are a few apps available but its not something you'd actually want.
If you only want DSTV Now and Showmax, this is perfect.

Box works well but
1. Screen flickers green for 10 seconds on resume from sleep or off
2. Hdmi audio glitch means you have to reselect audio setup to hear anything

Good, solid box for the price. Loading Netflix takes a bit of work, but it not extremely difficult. All in all, I'd recommend it to most users.

happy with product, its quick and responsive and the dstv app works well.

Absolutely love it! My TV wasn't able to pick up 1080i, so I had to use another TV to change the Android TV's settings from HDMI 1080 to 720... Once I did that, plugged it back into my own TV and it worked like a charm. Excellent value for money.

It is a pretty decent device considering the price point. It is a pretty smooth experience compared to units in the same price point. However, if you want to use an external hard drive above 1TB then this device is not for you. Netflix also does not work. Unfortunately it is a bit of a deal breaker for me. The app store is extremely limited. Amazon Prime cannot be loaded. Plex, Kodi and Showmax works very well too.

After about an hour playing with it, I've managed to successfully install Kodi with addons and Popcorn Time (although the PT icon isn't showing up with apps). For the price it seems to be a very capable player!
I'm not sure why other buyers are struggling so much to get it working.
Can definitely recommend an air mouse/keyboard combo to supplement the issued remote (if you want to be more effective browsing around).

Great product - easy to setup right out of the box. Setting up Showmax was painless and the viewing experience is far better that watching it through a Laptop browser. Watching YouTube videos is great and you can search using the voice input Google Assistant, which is neat.

Great value for money.

Received my Skyworth box yesterday. This box is made for Dstv , Showmax and youtube. There is no web browser, you cant install apk's. The playstore is very limited. my old smart tv's play store has more options. unknown sources is disabled and you cant enable it.My opinion, rather go for a mi box. This is only a high level multi choice media player.

It does what all Android does and disconnects wifi unexpected, when switching to LAN it works way better and quite fast. Games is nice, not advisable on this device unless you don't care about your remote

Its a very good Dstv now player, It does not have many options for app downloads or a web browser.
But does the job for Dstv Now, Netflix and Showmax

Awesome build quality from the packaging to the product itself. I give it 5 stars and I'm extremely happy with the asking price. I think Skyworth, South Africa outdid themselves with this proper Android TV box. I owned a few tv boxes before and this one stood out like a shining star. Awaiting the delivery of my second unit, thanks.

Unit works well, a little tricky to set up but once done its a breeze.

Bought solely for the purpose of watching Sport via DSTV Now in my Braai room. It works perfectly out the box, and was quick and easy to install.

Great starter for DSTV Now, Showmax and Kodi. Unfortunately, it is not even compatible with Netflix. Bummer. I was hoping to be able to stream everything from the same source.

The TV box is working fine and it looks like good quality item, but the operating system is something to get use to. It looks like Google wants you to use Google apps.

After 6 hours of usage the remote stopped working and started freezing. returned

This product does not support Netflix

Can't get any external drive larger than 1 TB working with this device.
Have tried FAT32, NTFS, GPT, EXT4.

great product.just works sideloading possible with a little effort

The specs indicate 8gb memory but it only has 4.9gb...why the false information

very nice. good quality and quick. This box does what I need it to. The people who says that they can't side load apps or do anything with ot should rather not own a tv box.

Absolutely love it

Streams DSTV live TV and Catchup perfectly, no issues with Showmax. Very easy to setup, the device is fast and runs Android TV well. The interface is simple and intuitive, and voice control works very well.

Only downside, the Netflix app is currently not compatible. Skyworth, are you looking into making sure this device meets all of Netflix's requirements?

Awesome product. Dislike is that when I plug in an external drive, it wants to format first.

Stuck on Checking for updates. Wont continue despite rebooting.

Very good box. There's now browser on the box to install apk's but you can download the Puffin Web browser from the play store and take it from there. I installed loads of apk's and it works very good even if you install another tv launcher to add all the new apk's

Previous review is rubbish. From the play store install ES file explorer and Puffin Web Browser for TV. Then you can download apk's and use the file explorer to browse to the download folder and install like anyother device.

Netflix, Terrarium and Amazon Prime Video both work along side Showmax and DSTV Now.

Very good value for money.

Pros: DSTV works. YouTube works. Log in using your Google Account. Easy setup. Decent remote and easy to pair phone remote app (includes keyboard in-app).

Cons: No Web browser.

Notes: I got Kodi to work (with Netflix) but it was a mission. Note that it is the Netflix app blocking Android TV functionality and not Android boxes being poor.

Nice box. works fast.
Note that Netflix does NOT WORK on this box. It loads from the Play Store and then gives a error when starting up, unsupported device.
Seems like the rest of the apps work fine.

Schalk, BTW you cab install APK's, first install ES File explorer, then you will be able to enable the unknow sources option.

Got two of these works well on everything except DSTV now have to log on from start everyday. unfortunately had to return them

The Skyworth Binge TV box has potential, but is too buggy at the moment. No HDMI sound passthrough via amp, sound synchronisation issues with video (main reason I returned this product), lack of support for NTFS USB drives and Ethernet issues. Have raised with the manufacturer and I have confidence that they will fix these issues. Until then, I wouldn't recommend.

Youtube, Showmax, Dstv and Google account functions. No Netflix and other apps available.

Good Product. Only drawback is Netflix is not pre-loaded on the device. If you try to use the Playstore version of Netflix it will say device is not supported. I managed to get Netflix working on it though, but for someone who is not tech savvy it will be a daunting task. Will create a youtube vid of how to get Netflix running on this device. (Wonder if Skyworth will pay me for this?) lol

Great device, a good android TV device, that enables 4K streaming to your TV. it is google certified so that you have access to the entire google playstore.

The product is nice and user friendly if you planning to watch DSTV now and Showmax only. The unit is only working through Google play store and is not compatable for Netflix, Kodi or any other non google app. The remote is nice and worked well.

this product is worth every cent. Easy set up. Good looking Box and a really nice Graphic interface on 4k video output. Dstv now works how ever to afraid to update. Netflix unfortunately does not work but not a train smash. How ever Showmax is preloaded. The voice control Bluetooth mouse work fantastic, would have been great if it was an airmouse Really worth the buy I bought 2.

Quite frustrating that it keep switching my language on the device to Chinese all the time.

Every time I start the device up the language keeps changing to korean

Limited Android interface, simple apps like google play music have limited actions, cant download for example. netflix has to be side loaded as the version in the on-board play store is not compatible with the device. FYI, waiting for two weeks for Skyworth to respond to my query. All in all a solid device, pity about the Interface.

cant get better... best evaaaa!!!

Does what it needs to do. Works better then my sinotec smart tv and my old mxq android box. Netflix not working at the moment but hoping that Skyworth sorts that out with Netflix but otherwise I am very happy.
So 4 rating is based on the fact that Netflix is not supported yet but lets hope that changes over the next 2 or 3 months.

Excellent great product.

Best box first the price. Google-certified, Bluetooth, RJ45 plug, Android 8, voice control etc. really good package.

Had to wait but it was really worth it

Brilliant device, works seamlessly with DSTV Now. A breeze to setup

I am very impressed with this product and works very well! Love it!

everything works for me. can side load apps. web browser and movies apps can be downloaded. if you want a browser then download puffin tv from the playstore. you can use this broswer to download all your other apps.

It is one of the best devices I have bought so far(4 in total). Easy to use once you understand how to side load apps. Technical support is fast to reply when you mail them.

very impressed at first, but for past couple of days, it will just freeze. The only way to fix it, is to pull out the power cable. This happens about 3 times per night.

Fantastic product, easy to use and compact.

would be nice if they can solve the auto frame rate switching that is not working. kodi playback stutters because of this. but overall it is a solid box. dstv and youtube working flawlessly

The sole purpose for this was to watch Netflix. This TV box does not allow for Netflix...maybe because of the preloaded Showmax and DSTV now??

awesome product :)

Great build quality for the price.

Preloaded with DSTV Now and Showmax.
