Tmall and LETV's set-top boxes were forced to upgrade, delete, remove illegal and unaudited apps and videos, and third-party video stations also began to shield the on-demand software on the box end.

the forced upgrade video content of the box was reduced.

Guard, sofa housekeeper and other software

after the remote forced upgrade, there was a lot of wailing in the forums where customers trusted us. A large number of users complained that as long as the box was powered on, the background would be updated and upgraded automatically. It was automatically updated as soon as it was started, and then a lot of live broadcast software was deleted. There are no playback records, so I have to find someone to crack them and install my own video software. One user said

similarly, LETV box, which focuses on video advantages, has also encountered content difficulties recently. Some leeco users reported that after opening the box and entering the leeco TV client, it could not be used, and the purchased member services were in vain. At the same time, LETV has also taken off a large number of foreign reality shows such as "call man", and other TV dramas and other video content has also begun to decrease

you can't see it without upgrading. After upgrading, you will be prompted that the broadcast control party failed to verify. One user said that the measurement accuracy of each gear was ± 1%; At present, the feasible solution to adopt closed-loop control mode is to install a certain version of firmware and upgrade LETV tv1.0.85. As soon as other versions of firmware are opened, you will be prompted to automatically upgrade to the latest version

a person from LETV box who asked not to be named said that when LETV stopped selling boxes, it would also force the upgrading of the original boxes and restrict a large number of unaudited contents. In the future, the content of LETV box will be controlled by CNTV, and the updated content needs to be reviewed manually. The user's experience will be worse, but there will be specific solutions after the acceptance and rectification by the broadcasting control party. The person said

at the same time, the push function is limited, and the aggregation software is blocked.

video manufacturers plan a new way out.

according to the recent regulations of radio and television, the Internet box products shall not set up a video station zone. In the Internet TV service, video stations shall not set up content platforms on their own, and can only provide content to the broadcast control platform and content platform. This means that iqiyi, PPS and other TV clients cannot access content on the set-top box platform. In the future, the video content at the TV end can only be broadcast through cooperation with the license party

Zhuangxiao, head of yoboxtv, a third-party set-top box data agency, believes that the multi round rectification of radio and television mainly focuses on licensing and copyright issues, and the closing letter restricts the installation of built-in applications. This means that set-top box manufacturers such as Xiaomi box, which rely on third-party on-demand and live broadcast software to obtain video content, or LETV box, which puts video content on its own shelves, will be most directly impacted

the road to hardware is limited, and many video content providers have begun to choose the method of software implantation. The person in charge of a third-party aggregation software disclosed that at present, they have reached access cooperation with LETV, Youku, iqiyi and other video stations, and set up special zones for each video station on the demand software side

in order to cope with the limitations caused by the inability to pre install software, domestic video stations have also begun to actively develop their own video clients and distribute them through third-party application markets and other channels

in the past two months, the download volume of video clients has increased explosively, nearly three times as much as before, and has reached nearly ten million levels. The person in charge of an application market disclosed
