Android set-top boxes: Copyright or wrong?

These boxes, which cost between $120 and $250, are essentially tiny computers running on the Android operating system used in popular smartphones and tablets. They are pre-loaded with apps, such as PPTV and Funshion, which stream movies and TV shows for free. New apps from China such as CloudTV have also emerged to offer free and premium content. CloudTV’s “English channels” pack for instance offers unlimited viewing of more than 50 channels, including HBO, English Premier League, Discovery and CNN, for US$4.99 (S$6.20) to US$6.99 each month. – Aw Cheng Wei, The Straits Times via AsiaOne
