This box does something’s ok and others not well. The apps are not good ones, Kodi struggles to do what it’s supposed to do and Showbox is unreliable. I would look to a Firestick or Roku, a lot less money and more functional.

Totally unreliable and with ton of errors. Supports anwers are to download updates. Every time I do that things get worse. Aside from problems after problems it suck s you in by every now and then delivering a movie. Right now aside from error msg. after error msg. with " Fail to load" this and that after system download, mine locked up mid-movie. When I got it back going again, I lost the sound. I had recommend this CRAP to seven frnds and relatives most all have given up an trashed it. Bottom line a waste of $149 LESSON, NOTHING IN LIFE IS FREE!!!

Review by Stacey Lacroix Tanacs2 years ago
This is the best thing ever. I cancelled my dish service saves me $100.00
a month and I get HBO SHOWTIME AND STARZ all free. also get tons of stations from all over the world all free. plus there is what seems to me to be every show and movie ever made. This was the best money I ever spent. Also their support is awesome. Always very helpful and friendly to help with whatever you need. You would have to be a fool not to get this.
I get buffering sometimes but not bad, as long as you have a decent internet service most times plays just fine. puts $1200.00 a year back in my pocket, so I think it's awesome.

I opened an "E" mail Media Launcher TV advertisement one day after listening to my disabled son talk about the cost of cable TV .(I'm retired and living on SS and he is on disabled SS , He is disabled from a 2010 auto accident. I said what the" heck i'll try this!" His cable bill was $180.00 a month and always on the increase. if i only paid $147.00 ONE TIME and saved that cable bill from now on we would be in high cotton So I dipped into my emergency funds and sent for a unit.This gadget was so amazing I couldn't live long enough to explore all its possibilities. Cable is a small corner of the world. Media Launcher TV is the WHOLE WORLD!!

Review by Kraymaa Dirosa2 years ago
I purchased my media launcher a while ago. I'm not the most tech savvy person on the planet so I was a prepared to be intimidated. That turned out not to be the case. The startup could not have been easier if you just follow the instructions.
Down the road I have hit a glitch or two and even been completely derailed. Never have I had better tech support with any equipment I have purchased. Someone has always responded within 24 hours and I love the video instructionals.
They have always be swift to respond and helpful even when I was barely able to explain the problem.
The last thing I would like to say is I love the convenience of not having to record, being able to get first run movies and not paying the cable people 160.00 a month. I'm a fan.

We've had the media launcher box for over 6 months, and it's been one o the greatest things in our life. It's a money saver since we are retired. Other than the box itself, one of the best feature is the support they provide for. It's incredible! I've never gotten this type of customer service before that was so prompt in answering our questions. Responses were so fast that is absolutely amazing. Within 24 hours or less we had the solution to our problem with clear, easy to read instructions. Jeff is a wonderful founder, and I would recommend this to everyone who wants to save money and "cut the cord (cable)". Many of my friends who have cut the cord and are using the media launcher box.

I recently purchased Media Launcher TV Box after hearing about the device from a friend that heard about it on Facebook. I wanted to try it because I was already prepared to drop my cable to basic because of the high cost. I received the device promptly and set up was easy, it is extremely important to watch the help videos. I was extremely pleased with the device, it's extensive content of entertainment and ease of use. I recently hooked up my Bose sound after watching a help video, now it is really nice to have the full experience in my living room. I am really looking forward to enjoying the numerous movies, show and all other uses this device offers. Also, if there are any problems or questions regarding the use, the team is readily available thru email and gets back to you very promptly with explicit instructions as needed. Thank you
for this fine device, it is a great addition to my home entertainment!!

All too often, we read an ad for a new product that sounds exciting, only to find after we purchased it that it was ALL hype and NO substance. When I read the ad for Media Launcher TV Box, i wondered if it could possibly do all it claimed. It offered my money back if not satisfied and allowed me to pay by using PayPal, so what did I have to lose?
The unit arrived promptly. It was well packaged. It took less than 5 minutes to get it installed and working. It did everything the ad said it would do, and it did it wonderfully! After using the TV box for a few days, I had some questions. I Emailed my questions and within an hour, received detailed answers. I have referred this product to a number of my friends and am very pleased to give it a 5 star review. Buy it! I am certain you will enjoy it every bit as much as I do.

I have been frustrated with our cable bills being so expensive and have been looking for a better alternative. I stumbled on info about your Media Launcher and was instantly interested. It appeared to be exactly what I was looking for, a way to watch what I wanted to watch, when I wanted to watch it with no subscription fees. I was skeptical but read the reviews and they all seemed to be good so with the 30 day return policy, I decided to try it. I was also happy to be able to pay through PayPal. We received the unit very quickly and had it going in short order. We are not very tech savy but we were soon watching an awesome array of tv. My husband is addicted to Fox News and we can watch it in live tv. So far, I am amazed beyond expectations. We did connect with an Ethernet cable. The picture quality is not quite as crisp as with cable but certainly acceptable. We are very satisfied at this point and considering adding more boxes. So far, our internet service is keeping up with our usage. We are VERY happy.

I wasn't really sure what to expect when I placed my order for the Media Launcher TV Box but I was pleasantly surprised. I had a few issues at first but was able to work them out on my own without much difficulty. (I highly recommend watching the videos on the website before setting up your Media Launcher. They were extremely helpful.) The setup was very easy and only took a few minutes. I accidentally did something that caused a message to appear on my screen and I was unable to figure out how to remove it. I contacted support by email and within a couple hours they got back to me with instructions on how to remove the message. Following those instructions, it only took a couple of minutes to do the job! As I said, I am impressed not only with the service and customer support but the content is fantastic!! Great job, guys!!

At first I was VERY skeptical, but when I received my MediaLaunch TV Box, they not only sent the one I had ordered but accidentally sent me one that belonged to a lady who lived about 45 minutes away from me, so I called her and told her what had happened, and gave her my address and told her she was probably as anxious to see if it worked as I was. She said oh no, I already know they work because I have TWO the 3rd one is going to be a gift! Well that gave me peace of mind to know at least someone else had tried it and liked it before I did, but I still was anxious to see exactly what it would do. Needless to say it is absolutely amazing, and I can't believe what this little box does! I still have a lot to learn about it but another thing I like is, if you have any questions, the customer service is excellent at getting back to you with solutions, not that I had any that I couldn't fix myself, the only problem I had was the screen was not full screen after my power had been off one day, but just unplugging it, and plugging it back in solved that problem right away!! Just make sure you have high speed internet, if you don't you may experience a lot of buffering which is very annoying!!! Thankfully I have just had fiber optic internet installed, and it rocks!! I would recommend to anyone who wants to cut the cable to their satellite or cable company to at least try this MediaLauncher Box, it is saving me $94 a month since I told Dish network I didn't need their rip-off services anymore!!

Customer service is excellent. Fast responses and great communications. Get better options than paying for premium movie channels or premium tier services offered by cable companies without the extra expense. Saves money, great R.O.I.
Review by Center Elbouchikhi2 years ago
My mother had sent me an email questioning what "media launcher" is. I decided to look into it. Turns out, we LOVE it! The navigation is easy on the tiny remote - not some big clunky remote with too many buttons which never get used anyway.
I can watch movies still playing in theaters or movies released last month, last year, and so on. I really like how I can view the movies by Genre. My son and husband like the Live Sports channels. And I sold my parents on purchasing one so they watch RAI TV - in Italy. It is amazing the new channels from around the world which appear. I can spend a full day just scrolling through everything offered on media launcher. I liked it so much, I bought a second launcher for my rec room television.
Today, I plan on cutting my connection with Time Warner Cable. No one should have to pay for what so many other countries get for FREE!
Customer service is excellent - all via email, and very quick turnaround.
Monopolized FCC ...bye bye! Loving my media launcher.
Review by Argyllshire2 years ago
I just started using Media Launcher and so far I've had a very easy time working with it. I thought it was going to be difficult, considering you only make a one-time payment and you're good to go. I wish this had been around years ago. It's better then cable. I would recommend this to anyone who has a hard time making their cable payments each month. It is a surprising change.
Review by Shojo Harasym2 years ago
Media Launcher TV is truly an amazing Product, It's one powerful little box that searches many sources and usually finds the movies you want to see. there have been times that the newer films won't play because no stream could be found, and sometimes movie quality was poor on a few streams. 90 percent of the time if it's out there, this Media Launcher TV box will find it and play it with satisfactory picture quality, I find the Media Launcher TV box is quicker to buffer movie stream if wired directly to you router, but results are satisfactory using Wi Fi mode just takes a little longer to load movie stream and buffer. there are so many thousands of movie titles on Media Launcher TV that I discontinued my streaming Netflix as I find even more movie choices and TV series on Media Launcher TV, then Netflix, Fire TV, and Cable TV Combined. I selected 2016 and the Media Launcher TV box Gave me so many movie choices and I am in so deep on movie list that the list seems endless and I would recommend that you leave unit on so you can resume your list search from where you left off, otherwise you have to start all over and scroll thru list page after page to get back to where you left off. we love Movies and to be able to see them without annoying commercials is wonderful. Go ahead, Don't be afraid to Order this Media Launcher TV box, you will be glad you did, received order promptly by priority mail, Plugged unit in, connected to TV, turned it on, simple to setup, No Monthly fees, comes with everything you need. Happy Movie Watching ! from a very happy customer!
Review by Ekimmai Poria2 years ago
I recently bought the Media Launcher TV Box and I'm so thrilled with all it does. You have instant access to Movies,TV, Sports, even Live TV and PPV. Setup is extremely easy and the instructional videos are outstanding. They show you step by step everything you need to help you with any questions. I had to contact customer service a couple times and they got back to me right away with an answer or a video to explain the solution. I've never received such fast and excellent customer service for any product I've ever purchased.
The Launcher gives you access to much more than cable can. Movies that are currently in theaters right now, you have access to. I moved from NJ to California and since I'm a big football fan, I was frustrated that I couldn't get most of the games for my team every week. The Cable Football package was way to expensive. Now I get to see all my games free. You can see every episode of shows you watch and access them by name or date.
We are thrilled with the purchase and it allows us to view everything we want with no monthly cable charge.

It works well. Not perfect but it serves purpose. I bought 3 now. A friend bought one. The first one I bought doesn't work anymore. It doesn't find or play much. The other 2 in its place are working. I have watched the help videos and updated as I do the others. Jeff sent me another unit. It is working well. I shipped the non responsive one back and had a replacement 2 days after they received it. Good job Jeff and team at Media Launcher. Keep it up!!!

The Media Launcher box is a great little device. They help you get setup and watching shows in no time!
Review by Ferrer2 years ago
If you're currently subscribing to cable TV or any other service requiring a monthly fee, this device will pay for itself in short time. The preloaded apps provide an endless amount of content to choose from. You can watch movies and entire TV series from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and other network TV without advertisements. You can also access many shows from overseas. I'm a soccer fan and have found that there are more games and highlights than I can possibly keep up with. And, I don't need to be up at odd hours to watch them live since they're available on replay. The interface is intuitive and the remote makes it easy to search for content. The picture quality is great too. I have it hooked up to high speed internet via ethernet and have been able to get HD quality for the most part. I've been using it for 5 months now and haven't run into any problems so far. Overall, this is the best solution I've found to cutting the cord on overpriced cable TV.
Review by Adelynn2 years ago
I was told about media launcher from a friend who was raving about it. Figured what the heck I'd thrown plenty of $ away on so many different Cable and satellite company rip offs it was time to give this a try. We are so glad we purchased the media launcher, it's an outstanding product and the company is awesome to work with! Yesterday I purchased several for Christmas presents I'm pretty sure I'm going to have some happy kids when they receive their media launchers. I was amazed at how quickly they emailed me when I had questions and we're willing to work with a multiple order and gift wrap. If you want great entertainment order your media launcher now!

The Media Launcher TV box was a great find. Adding it to our antenna tv has saved us the expense of a cable bill with all the same benefits.
I liked it so much that I bought 2 more boxes.

Review by CarlWarmington2 years ago
If you think you can watch "still in theater movies", you CAN'T. Flicks that came out in Nov 2016 are either poor copies and in Korean or some other East Asian lingo, which I don't speak.
The "resolution" of the content is also anywhere from 480 to 720, I've not found ANY HD or HDR on this box. I've been to Fandango, and looked specifically for 'Movies/Shows NOT on Netflix" and the Media Launcher will scour the internet looking for a "streaming source". Sometimes, 3-4 minutes will pass while looking for a movie/show to watch.
I personally find that screwing around with something that takes more time, effort and dicking around with than really necessary, isn't worth the money. I use it, but not like I thought I would. And for those of us that work full time, 30 days isn't really enough time to determine whether the unit is truly worth the cost.
Also, getting the "picture in the TV frame correctly" takes MORE screwing around with than should be necessary. I attempted to watch "Better Call Saul" on AMC and I got a "1/4 picture" in the upper right hand corner of my HDTV. Can't figure out how to make it fit the screen.
And yes, I've watch ALL the "help tutorial videos" that are available on their site.
