Locked down? Meaning nothing can be side loaded?

Also - why a local Netflix partner with 'high' pricing?
Why not just let us register on the Netflix site as normal?
And why do they offer UHD? This unit isn't UHD from what I read?

I know I'm subject to exchange rate, but I'm under R170.00pm for my UHD package

This device is going for R900 at makro, and i think i may be interested in getting one.

i dont have too much knowledge of this device, maybe some guys can help me out with the below:

I have a older TV with a HDMI port, but its not a smart tv so cant really use it to watch much without a media box - i want to get more use from the tv. I have 10Mbps fibre over wifi throughout the house.
Can i cast any content from my android phone to this device?
Can i connect an external drive and play my content from the device - does it provide some UI where i can see all my movies and tv shows etc
Can i load Kodi on the device?

Hope peeps can help

Did some googling. I see you can mirror your screen from an android device or windows pc to the roku?? Is this still an option and are there any issues with this option? And is this option only available on US models?

Yup, that's how my kids usually watch the content (especially pics) on the big screen from their phone/tablets

Little bit of thread necro but does anyone know if the Kwese ROM can be replaced with stock ROKU? Kwese channels suck to put it politely. I'd like to replace with ROKU channels but can't since I the device can't be associated with a ROKU account.
