Access to hundreds of channels with no subscription – all in one set top box.
Seebo Maxx is a smart set top box, a media streamer and media player in one. Users can watch content from all over the world, record favourite shows, listen to the latest music, connect all your devices, and take control of your viewing experience.
We received a pre-production box for the review and it wasn’t able to do all the functions that they claimed it could. So we used it mostly for On Demand feature.
Here are the bits you need to know:
-The technology is called Internet TV. The quality of the content depends on where this content comes from. Episodes can be pixelated, dark or just plain irretrievable.
-Some popular channels like Disney Junior only offers bits and pieces of their episodes depending on what’s available on the Internet.
-You need to know what channel to add or what directory to find content on, like 1Channel, Cartoon HD, Kids Place (yep, we mostly went through the kids stuff). If you don’t’ know the directories with full episodes and movies, it can get pretty confusing. The kids channels and movies are everywhere, with only minor broken links.
-You will need a good Internet connection as this is Internet TV.
-It eats up your monthly internet quota. If you’re just watching every night after work, the average monthly bite is 20GB. For school holidays, it’ll be around 70-80GB per month.
-There are heaps of add on music channels, radio stations and podcasts that you can listen to. There is even an Add On channel for free audiobooks.
If I could afford the RRP $599 would I get it? Probably not. We’re trying to cut back screen time at home plus there are too many little things that make the whole experience frustrating (slow buffering, broken links, dead channels etc). Aside from that, it eats up my internet quota. I think there’s a lot of room for improvement before I can be convinced to buy one of these.
