Monsterbox X1 Max Live TV Android TV Box

Monsterbox X1 Max Live TV

In the world of Android boxes there are all sorts of models geared towards different types of streaming needs, and the Monsterbox X1 Max is one of those models that has a special feature. When you compare the price of this box compared to your standard Android models, there is a huge increase in price and that is because it provides service on top of the box itself. The service itself is somewhat controversial in many official quarters especially on the YouTube platform as the service provides live TV feeds.


The Monsterbox X1 Max is classified as an IPTV/live TV Android box, but in fact it’s just a regular Android box with life TV apps that you can find on the Internet and in most cases can be applied to any other box. What you are paying a high price for is the life TV service that’s going to save you money. The box’s hardware performance is not the best but the live TV service is.

Monsterbox X1 Max Pros and Cons

Final thoughts

So the Monsterbox X1 Max cost a lot of money, and what you are paying for is actually paying for is the IPTV/live TV service which is pretty good. They could have used a more high-end TV Box that would have delivered the best of both worlds with having a high-performance Android box and a killer IPTV/live TV service. However, doing so may have resulted in even higher prices so it is what it is.

  1. I purchased this box and have had it one month. Your review is right on. Because of heat build up, I installed 2 usb fans with on/off & 3 speed switch on the bottom and it stays much cooler, between 36 & 46 degrees Celsius. I find the IPTV service to be quite good. There is definitely a trade off with the device hardware, which is mid to lower end but having 4 gb RAM and 128 gb internal memory helps somewhat.
