    I use mine with these apps mostly:
    Cracked - Music apps
    Spotify
    Deezer
    Freezer (for downloading music in flac/320kbps - use with a mouse)

    Video streaming apps:
    MagellanTV (documentaries)
    Filmplus
    Cyberflix
    CinemaHD
    Prime Video/Netflix
    Youtube
    ITV Hub
    Pluto TV
    Iplayer
    Sky news
    VLC (mostly used to stream videos/music/photo's from my Synology NAS)
    All4 (sideloaded and use with a wireless mouse)

    Sometimes I run oscam server on it for testing purposes - I have a few other apps I use, but the above apps are used most. Games wise - I have a lot of games installed on it, and sometimes use the game streaming service to play Fortnite etc (for free).

    You can also stream directly from you STB - so if you want to watch Sat on it from your VU+ box, or stream any downloaded movies/TV from your STB it's fairly easy to do that. Plus you can use Kodi, plex servers, IPTV servers, etc....and don't forget Karaoke for the party lovers!

    Most UK couriers are talking about an admin fee of £15 for collecting any fees. That often exceeds the amount being charged.

    StbEmu (IPTV Stream Box emulator) works fine - get the pro version.

    Plex (player) is a pile of **** - there are memory leaks which causes stuttering - even when NOT transcoding, just streaming from a plex server.
    Plex have known about the problem for 6 or 7 months, not fixed.
