Like a lot of first-generation, crowdsourced products, the original didn’t quite live up to the promise. Popslate 2, though, looks like a very promising course correction.
Kodi is not pre-installed so you just have to install it from the Play Store. Because this is a rooted device, you can’t download Netflix directly from the Play Store. I downloaded Netflix from a APK mirror and a few days after logging in to it, my account was hacked (someone logged in to change my e-mail, password and subscription). Maybe my login was found another way but there’s a K-Addons APK it says to download (from the Browser app) so you can install various Kodi addons. I changed my Netflix login, did a full factory reset on the Android box and since re-installing Netflix (plus not downloading the K-Addons APK) it hasn’t been hacked.
Next time you open Google Play Music on any device, the first thing you’ll see is a list of playlists you might like, plus a short description for why the app made any given selection. If you’re at work, and it’s raining, maybe you get some ambient piano to help you focus the afternoon away. Just got home, pouring some wine? Sunset music. Friday night, you’re at a bar? EDM all night. It’s a bit like Google Now, the predictive feed of everything you probably want to know about right now, except fully focused on music. Think of it as a super-smart, hyper-personalized set of radio station presets. open the app, tap one, and go.

Add an indoor TV antenna, and you’ve got network and local news as well.

So, what’s the catch? Turns out, legally, there might not be one in Canada, at least not yet. Yes, sometimes customers are watching copyrighted content, but they aren’t downloading that material. They’re streaming it, and streaming falls into a legal grey area.
Designing a network protocol to support streaming media raises many problems. Datagram protocols, such as the User Datagram Protocol (UDP), send the media stream as a series of small packets. This is simple and efficient; however, there is no mechanism within the protocol to guarantee delivery. It is up to the receiving application to detect loss or corruption and recover data using error correction techniques. If data is lost, the stream may suffer a dropout. The Real-time Streaming Protocol (RTSP), Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) and the Real-time Transport Control Protocol (RTCP) were specifically designed to stream media over networks. RTSP runs over a variety of transport protocols, while the latter two are built on top of UDP.
That very well could be the issue. If you have Windows 7 or 10 it comes with antivirus built in (Windows Defender). You probably don’t need anything else unless you want to be ultra careful and tend to visit bad neighbourhoods on the internet.

Are you still wedded to Apple gadgets? Do you the iTunes store for your video needs? Do you use iTunes for your personal media library? Then you’ll want the latest Apple TV: The Apple TV 4K. On the other hand, at a starting price of $179, it’s more expensive than your other choices.
And still there’s more. A further swipe down calls up an unexpected but fun link to gorgeous photograph collections from photo storage site 500px.com. The single best shelf of the Discovery system, though, is up next. Called My Apps, it lets you effortlessly add links to any of the apps you’ve downloaded from the Google Store. In other words, it finally introduces the sort of customisable, clear-cut content shortcut system that Android so pointedly doesn’t deliver by itself.
While it’s nice to have these buttons, I do wish they were actual buttons rather than capacitive surfaces. Not only would that feel better when jumping from the traditional buttons, but it would also help prevent any accidental presses, which happen all too often during gameplay. Also, the d-pad isn’t great. Nvidia isn’t alone in this regard, but seriously, it’s 2015: can everyone please just stop making crappy, mushy d-pads? On a more positive note, there’s a headphone jack on top that you can route all of the Shield’s audio through, which is great for when you don’t want to disturb the rest of the household when watching a film or playing a game.
