Can you download Amazon Prime and HBO GO apps here? And can you use Amazon Prime and HBO GO local (Philippines) subscription? TIA!
Hi 🙂 Amazon Prime is not currently available for PH users but you can download and use it only if you are using a VPN and you have an active Amazon Prime account. HBO Go is available if you are an active subscriber
Have you tried installing VPN? For accessing other USA Netflix movies?
Yes, I use the fastest VPN http://bit.ly/393oikt to watch US Netflix and HBO
Have you tried using this for iwantv app too? Whenever I cast from my phone it wouldn’t show the originals shows, but for TV shows you see on TV it shows up. I want to buy one but need to confirm if it shows up first so I won’t waste any money.
iWant TV did not yet made their app compatible with this Android device, I’ve tried many times but the app is only available on mobile phones. iWant developer must make a compatible version to more devices like Amazon Firestick and Roku.
Yes, pwede i chromecast ang mga originals ng iwant pero ndi na iinstall sa mi box ang iwant
