anti-piracy protection 

Concerned about purchasing a pirated copy of AndroidTV OS, be it a TV, Set-top Box or Dongle? If you are, check out potential red flags: 

  • Device seems to run AndroidTV OS (OS 9 & above, Google Assistant, OTT apps) but Cast built-in is not supported

  • Device supports Miracast receiver (Android mirroring) but not Cast built-in

  • Device is described as running Android AOSP OS yet supports Android TV Apps (with Scan QR Code to login)

  • Device is rooted / jailbroken and/or does not receive firmware updates despite OS version 9 & above

  • Vendor suggests Cast service be performed via central Chromecast pooling with HDCP handshake stripped off

  • Vendor(s) system uses MAC Address as Device Identifiers despite using OS version 9 & above

  • The Vendor uses a purported Cloud service to pre-install Apps but all other Device-related functions are capable of being performed via local server only 

If the answer to 2 or more to the above is YES, you are probably running a pirated copy of AndroidTV ported to a custom open source Android ROM 

 

Risks posed include falling foul of the Terms of Service of Google Play, the Terms of Service of all OTT Apps displayed and Data Protection regulations (Guest Data)
