    Loads of people on adverts.ie , just make sure you use an Ethernet connection as the NIC card on them is shite and if your wifi is not great then it could be shit to stream anything

    They're great for tv and films, not so much for live sports, particularly for big games, if you can use an ethernet cable rather than wifi. Got mine from Amazon, cheaper than buying here.

    I have 2, bought an MxQ box from keltronix.ie (formerly gogadgets.ie), and a second box (MxQ Pro) from Wish.com, and have had no issues. I can't think of a match I haven't been able to see that I wanted to see (including away to Legia, and Minsk), and EPL games (if I'm bothered). They are linked to a facebook page that offers aftersale tech support, hints and tricks, which is very good.
    Definitely get one with a NIC, and so you can have the box away from your router, something like this (there are cheaper, less technical models)

    Great, which one would you recommend more or should I buy both?

    How much did they set you back?

    The MxQPro I find great. IIRC, it cost 57 (including 10 customs clearance, but that's another story). I seethe Keltronix site has a similar one for 59.

    Got one of these yesterday, they're the dogs. A wifi signal that was coming in around 18Mbs is now 85Mbs over the LAN. Cheers for the heads up, never knew such things existed.

    i got something similar to these as a Christmas present couple years back, although I love the idea of it the one doesn't seem to do it for me, it relies on apps like showbox and a couple others that are becoming more unreliable I think lately and the box is getting very slow too.

    Do these use the same apps or is there pre installed apps for them?

    slightly OTT but anyone got any recommendations for some decent apps for live games and TV shows?
