The current state of Hong Kong TV is not good; the dross that is pumped out on the local box is just dire, and arguably has been so for the last 20 years. This is one of the reasons that the FunkyKit East team have covered, with various depths, the Unblock Tech IPTV box, LeTV box, and the Mi Box.
What we have for you today is the Small Seven IPTV box (小七盒子), and it really pains me to inform you that this review will be short, and you will know why in the verdict at the end. I normally really get into the groove when I try to research a bit more on a company, but with Small 7 Tech I hit a brick wall, and was out off with some of the ‘modern’ photos of their assembly line on their website.
From what I can gather, Small 7 Tech is a China-based company with only the Small Seven IPTV box on their portfolio. In a bid to make the company seem more ‘international’ the company has decided to include its Japanese translation of its name in the logo…… and why the hell is it in gold…..?!?
I spotted the Small Seven IPTV box being sold in Sham Shui Po, and the reseller was trying to up-sell it saying it was better than the Unblock Tech IPTV box. I had my doubts. Luckily or unluckily, a colleague of mine owned one and was good enough to let me try it out a few hours. Disclaimer: I got a bit upset with this, and ended up deleting all the photos I took of it, so I’ve had to artistically use some of the photos I found online for this review.
