Streaming has quickly become the norm in many homes, not only in major international markets, but also in South Africa. It's never been easier to connect to each of its streaming apps and enjoy a world of entertainment at your fingertips. In fact, a number of users have chosen to ditch the conventional set-top box and install a satellite dish in their home, which not only removes the initial installation costs but also eliminates any additional liability related to another device as the point of failure.

The benefits of switching to streaming services are considerable: they provide a broader entertainment base while allowing the addition of educational content for children. While there are plenty of options for streaming, Xiaomi has simplified your search by offering two products that will suit your budget and feature set. Choosing the best option for your household has never been easier, with two powerful yet affordable options.
