Agreed, everyone has different usage. The box surely sounds lucrative if one thinks of it as media player + DTH but it isn’t as capable in the media player department.I should have stayed away from this too...The damn thing can't play 4k movies & only support FAT32 file system so we can't even copy 4k movies on the external drives...
I'm hugely regretting buying it now...I did read all the reviews here on the box & also watched all the YT videos regarding this box & no-one no-where mentioned that this thing can't play 4k files even though 4k has been written on the box...
And I also agree with you that not many people can afford all the monthly/yearly app subscriptions...I myself am not subscribed to Prime & Netflix...I bought this not because of streaming but because they advertised the box as a 4k box...So, I bought this box to play 4k movies from HDD/pen-drive & to watch normal DTH channels...
Just because most people on this forum are buying the box for streaming does not mean that, all people will need the box for the exact same purpose...I know you had a different purpose & so had I...
As the name Xstream suggests it is intended for customers interested in using streaming services as well as DTH.
I guess you missed in the review discussion, I had specified that it doesn’t support NTFS and exFAT. Neither did it support my 2 tb hdd.
If you would have asked me , that buying this box for playing 4K movies makes sense? I would have said No. But that ship has sailed now.
Anyways it is more of a 4K streaming box. Playing occasional video files from pendrive is a different thing.
As far as xstream subscription is concerned don’t trouble yourself with customer care. Just send a message to airtel india on facebook or twitter and they should handle it smoothly. Xstream subscription should have been activated at the time of installation though.
P.S I am in no way supporting the box or airtel just sharing my knowledge.
