Evening everyone

Need some help here.
I have an HD LED TV with HDMI capabilities. Actually it's a good TV (LG), but it's not that smart.

Therefore I need to do some workarounds to get a streaming service up and running. I have an unshaped 4mbps line next to the TV and I'm looking into the following:

1.) Getting UnoTelly for the DNS move through the US.
2.) Get a device that can connect via cable or Wifi (preferred option) to the router and has smart features or apps like an internet browser (for Supersport) and Neflix / Hulu.
This is my problem. Do I get an AppleTV (R999) or a Smart BluRay player (R1699) or an XBox or Playstation?
The last two won't really be used much and therefore I would like the cheaper/est option.

Are there any other clever suggestions I haven't thought of?

Afterthoughts:

1. Does the Explora have smart capabilities? Can I for instance stream over that? Could I get Netflix through it?
2.) Would the Explora work non a non-premium package or does it have to be the full DSTV premium?

Thanks in advance for your replies.

For an Android TV Box get this
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...h-AP6335-with-HDMI-2/1494386_32297432715.html
or if you want an airmouse get this one
http://www.aliexpress.com/store/pro...DMI-2-0-with-wireless/214676_32340545920.html - Just send a message to the 1st store to make sure the second store is a reseller of their device.
Can also get the 4GB RAM box if you can spend a little more.
I think the first store(the actual manufacturer) might be out of stock with the airmouse combo or they are updating their site for their new media player they are launching.

Don't even bother getting a Roku or WD.
There are already other people on Mybroadband that got above media player I posted, I have it and it's currently the fastest and best Android video playback player out there. The manufacturer also provides excellent service and updates.

For a DNS service try dns4me.net
They are half the price of Unotelly and recently added a South African server.
You can even add your own websites that aren't currently supported by the service and it will route it through a US/UK server to work.
They also have an Android app.
