Bouygues Telecom will extend the return option Multi TV to its subscribers Bbox Miami connected by VDSL. We suggest an alternative.
Bouygues Telecom will propose a second set-top box to (most) large-scale bridging finally a customer waiting. Up until then reserved for the few clients Bbox Miami connected by optical fiber, the option Multi TV will be extended to the academic year to customers connected by VDSL.
A source informs us that Bouygues Telecom is launching in the fall the option Multi TV Miami VDSL. Subscribers to the offer Bbox Miami can get a maximum of a decoder Miami additional. The option will be billed for the tidy sum of 6,99 euros per month, or 84 euros per year, with an activation fee of 59 euros, refunded upon return of the decoder in the event of termination.
The option will not be offered to ADSL customers, Bouygues Telecom considering that they lack the speed to watch tv simultaneously on two tvs. And too bad for those who want to watch tv in the living room or in the bedroom, but never simultaneously.
The alternative OTT
Anyway, if the Bbox Miami seems tempting — for Android TV, Google Cast, or Spotify Connect — it unfortunately suffers from design flaws that we bring to you the against. In addition to being outdated, its processor Marvell Armada 1500 Pro is not vented, so that the box overheating and suffers from serious slowdowns and malfunctions. In addition, popular apps such as Plex or Kodi do not work properly, because they do not support hardware decoding of this chip. We look desperately to the testimony of a client, in which the Bbox Miami is working properly.
We recommend that you rather of acquiring one (or two) box Android TV third-party(s), such as a Nvidia Shield TV (230 euros) or a Xiaomi Mi Box (60 euros today), and install the application Molotov.tv.
