I would like to share with you what I think about 10TT SOCIAL TV. This post will also include the information, background and specification about this product throughout the post.


Basically, 10TT is a Linux based media player to watch movies, TV shows, TV series on your TV directly from the internet. It is packed with features and pre-loaded public apps for easy viewing or users can download from other 3rd party private apps developers’ sites. 10TT Video On Demand (VOD) apps pull video contents from 100++ websites and currently features more than 12,000 titles.
 If you are a movie and drama lover, this is certainly a nice product to get. From the following photos, you can see there are many apps that providing the access to the movies and drama sites. It have different channels to choose from - Hong Kong series, Indian Series, Indonesia Movie, Malay Drama, Animation, English Movie, English Series and more from the following photo:
The 1OTT also supports direct SopCast links over Facebook, Twitter post and Weibo so you can follow your favorite page to stay updated to the latest news and live coverage on sports entertainment. It also can access to your PLEX server with the 1OTT and stream all your personal media from your library and right onto your TV. 10TT VOD apps enable direct streaming and no downloading required.
The user is required to key in the package code once in order to gain access to different channels (Package code will be included). The package code will be updated from time to time ( both daily and weekly basis) which the user can get it from the announcement tab in the My Apps main menu.
For instance, if I select cantonese Series(港剧), it will show up as the following:
The first 3 are the folders which can lead you to drama song, variety shows and Drama in HD. If you click in the drama song, it will also show you varieties of Cantonese drama songs. If you like to listen to any of it. Just click on it and sit back and enjoy it. It's just simple as that.
The good things about 10TT is they provide lot of old series that you might have been missed out from few years back.
They even provide the service for you to search for the movie or dramas that you like and that is not on their apps. Just simply write to them and they will assist you with the specify movie or drama.
Following are the "With or without you"(東坡家事) episode 15 that I had tried to view during my review at BHB Ideal Avenue outlet:
I did not encounter any streaming problem while watching the show. It was a smooth ride for me. Watching Cantonese series is what my daughter and I always do after I finished my house chores and she finished her homework at night. That is when we start the bonding time and discussing about the drama series. This is where we brush up our Cantonese too! hahaha........
Following were some of English Series available. However you can see that the first 5 folders contain of Movie Collections by year, Movie Trilogies, Walt Disney, Class Movies and Black & White Movies.
If you click on the Movie Collections, it will show you the following folders:
If you click the 2014 Movies, then you can see on the top right corner, it shows the total movies available. In this case, it consist of 117 movies.
Sometime while watching movies, phone rang or you have to stop to do something. Not to worry. As 1OTT got the function of play back as the following pictures:
Just click resume, then it will bring you to the last watch position. No need to play from the beginning.
This is what happen to us when 3 of us sat down and watch movies - Ant Man together. Suddenly, hubby phone rang and need to answer the call. That's how I took the photo above. After the call, we continue with the movie. We enjoyed the Ant Man very much. Nice movie to recommend!
Apart from the resume playback feature, it also have the fast forward and rewind features too!

And we were fortunate to get FREEOTT after the review. However, The unit is NOT FOR SALE.

FreeOTT is a small unit of WIFI access based for the sole purpose of our personal usage and demonstration.  This is a WIFI version.
 Special thanks to VidCrowd Media Sdn. Bhd. for the FreeOTT.

After I got hold on the FREEOTT, I plug in to my TV and with the cable given. After installation and with the wifi on, I get on with the step by step process of installation. It is very easy set up. If I can install it, so do you. It is very straight forward installation. And you just need to do a ONE TIME download for private apps to enjoy UNLIMITED video streaming for FREE.

Furthermore, the controller is very user friendly and easy to use. The button is easily found. 

In general, 10TT is another choice for online entertainment usage which it provides a user friendly interface and it is very easy to use and setup. It provide lot of channels apart from what I have mentioned. It also provides education channel for my girl to watch and also sports channel for my hubby. Hubby and I also love to watch some cooking channels. Apart from that, we can also have family time to sit down to watch movies together. Furthermore with direct streaming using 10TT and no downloading required it will save lots of time. We can watch anytime and anywhere we want. Just carry with you the portable 10TT Social TV with you + wifi accessible.
Since X'mas is around the corner, I think this is one of the gifts I would choose for my parents and in law as they are spending more time in watching during their leisure time since they have nothing much to do. Furthermore, there are no advertisement throughout the series or movies. And they also can watch the series and movies that they have missed from the past. At least they will not complaint that during the weekend all are repeated movies and nothing much to watch. 
But please ensure that you must have minimum of 2MB high speed broadband internet for most contents, while 4MB is needed for streaming Live TV.

Auntie Gaik Lean's old school eatery @ Bishop Street, Penang.

During one of the visits from a friend from Ipoh, we went out for a dinner gathering at the nonya cuisine restaurant at No.1 Bishop Street, 10200 Penang. Contact Number: 04 - 2638121
Although it is a rainy night but still there are lots of patron.

Hot Barley - RM3, Nutmeg Juice - RM4 and Honey Lemon - RM5
I had the nutmeg juice which I think it is something special from other restaurant as they blend the nutmeg. So you still can feel the blended nutmeg at the bottom of the glass. Normally, they will serve just the nutmeg juice. You can give this a try if you like nutmeg. As for my family, my gal and hubby do not favour nutmeg juice.

We were introduced to try this platter as it has the combination of spring rolls, lor bak, cucur udang and acar awak. Which was a good choice for us. As everyone enjoyed it very much and my guest loves their acar awak.

KIAM CHAI ARK - RM20 (Small Serve)
We ordered a small serve of Kiam Chai Ark. Which eventually distribute to 5 bowl of soup for the five of us. The soup does not have the strong duck flavour.

You can choose the type of fish that you love and we opt for String ray during our visit, The fish is fresh but the curry tumis does not really suits our liking.

This is one of the popular dishes of the night. Love their sambal petai. Nice blended sambal.

This would be my love for the night. The kerabu pucuk paku. It is actually hand tossed fiddlehead fern (Paku) with aromatic herbs, I think if we ordered another plate of this, it would be gone in just few minutes. Really recommend to try this if you like paku.
Jiew Hu Char (SMALL) - RM22

To end our meal, we ordered pengat for dessert. Actually we were full from the meal so we just ordered one to try.

Today, I am going to blog about hawker food along Jalan Bukit Bendera at Air Itam. It is not hard to locate. It is just next to the Air Itam round about. They start operation from 12 noon. We stumble into this place when we have to stop by that area to settle some of our things. After we finished settle everything, here comes our food hunt. 
During our visit, we manage to try most of the foods there except for the "Mee Rebus", "Mee Goreng" and  Pasembur Stall. However, I get to try the "Cucur Udang" from their stall but sorry no photo as I take away and had that on my way back home. 
Things that we savour are:

Penang Laksa
Actually, I am not the fan of Laksa. Which they always claimed that ladies favour laksa all the time. However, my princess and hubby are the laksa gang. Both of them love laksa very much. My daughter always claim that because she is "Penang Lang" that's why favour of Penang Laksa. 
And she only favours of the laksa noodles and soup only. 
This Penang Laksa stall has a fragrant laksa broth. I cannot resist the aroma and get to savour some from my hubby laksa.
