    Hi guy's. I have a TX2 android box with mobdro on it . Mobdro was running fine but lately every stream constantly stop/starts buffering every few seconds. I've reset the box reinstalled mobdro etc but no good. I really like how mobdro works how it streams individual tv shows etc. What are the best alternatives out there? Or a fix if anyone knows of one? Cheers.

    Could be a bandwidth issue you've got? Run something like Speed Test on the Android box, see what it reports. Maybe your ISP is throttling Mobdro streams?

    I use Mobdro quite often and it's been aright, it streams fine in China via my VPN.

    I'm hitting 52mbps through a power line adapter. But even if i run an Ethernet cable straight from the router at 100mbps it still happens.

    I wonder if your ISP is throttling or blocking the Mobdro streams then? Mobdro streams no problems for me, but I do have to use a VPN, because otherwise it's completely blocked here in China. Don't know of any streaming alternatives, other than what @Dannydet has already suggested. Perhaps you could try a VPN with it, I use ExpressVPN myself, for if your ISP is throttling or blocking it. A net neutrality issue? FWIW I did try Mobdro again just now, and it was fine.

    Net neutrality is still a thing in China @mikedt?

    Hello, I am using Mobdro on Android platform and find it works very well. I don't know if this is a subjective opinion but I recommend it.

    Try Amazon Prime, HBO and Netflix. If not available in your region go with VPN
