The Maige TV is a satellite box that receives channels from a Hong Kong satellite feed. The channels are mostly from Hong Kong, Taiwan, China.

Please provide your opinions, questions, and any new general information about the Maige TV as it comes along.

I signed up purely to discuss this box, its being sold in Thailand (and they are setting up Thai servers as our internet international links can be a bottle neck) and it isnt really a 'satellite box'. So far theres not a lot of feedback or english language information.

I can say its a pure IPTV box, which the company is feeding streams HD and SD that they probably source from satellite. But the box itself is just IPTV.

What I am most interested in finding out is users have mentioned that if your a subscriber you can access on a PC or iPad. In my case I already run a XBMC HTPC and a boxee box, if I can get a legal licensed PC stream I might be able to get it onto the XBMC PC or if it has an iPad app, by the magic of airplay I can probably push the stream from the ipad to the boxee to the TV.

Ths way I can just 'subscribe' without the box itself which I do not want. Paying 150 for a year of the channels is fine, paying 500 (the price here) or more for the box )(and one year) isnt.

What prices are you paying stateside ??

So your paying just the rmb prices ?? And self shipping importing ??

For those that have one already, do the pc and iPad apps need the box in any way ?? Can the box be off and unconnected ??

I am mostly interested in streaming the HD channels to my htpc, I dont have a need for the stb.
