GENERAL CONCEPTS

In all these TV-Box we have several custom firmware alternatives that allow us to use the device in different ways, depending on the chosen firmware we have the possibility to watch Netflix or HBO in HD among other services, we can have Android TV or Android classic. Keep in mind for now HBO Nordic V.3 does not work on Android TV system.

The first thing we have to check is if our device has Google Widevine L1 DRM licenses that will give us access to watch Netflix or HBO in HD, for this we install and run the DRM Info app. Normally all these TV-Box come with this DRM system but in some of its early versions that was not the case. If we have problems with the DRM licenses or we have lost them we can try to use this recovery app, without this certificate the payment streams will not work.
