    Default This is the Telkom LIT Android media box

    This is the Telkom LIT Android media box

    Telkom will launch its new media platform LIT in September, offering free music and video streaming to broadband subscribers.

    If this works it catches a couple of the incumbents with their pants down.

    If MyBroadband or any forum members buy this device please test the resolution Netflix plays and how well Plex works, specifically 10 bit x265 and surround sound.

    I want one.

    wonder if you will be able to get the media box as a straight purchase without signing onto these services.

    The S905X support X265 10-Bit decoding, has Dolby and DTS pass-through via HDMI. Unless the device is Netflix certified it will not do Netflix HD and higher with DD5.1

    They do say you can purchase it for R1099, I assume it would the same as you buying any device like a modem from Telkom.

    the specs says 4k , and seems throttling happens on Telkom side , since you can disable the LIT service and use data that is not zero rated for higher quality. so this could be a nice box to get.

    This looks promising for those with Telkom Internet. This box also looks good. Is there anything similar on the market. Only seen them with Android 6.

    Not bad but including 4K playback capability is only useful for - ahem - borrowed stuff.

    Netflix will not allow streaming on a regular Android media box like this - it must be Android TV which this isn't.

    Google Play store does not stream 4K in South Africa as far as I am aware.

    Showmax... well Showmax is not even on HD let alone 4K.

    I hope you're wrong, Netflix is one of the content partners and the box supports Widevine DRM needed for higher resolution Netflix.

    Hmm, looks interesting. Wonder how Kodi will run on it?
