Breaking news! Tvpad to officially shutdown TVPad 1 – 3 on Jan 1st, 2016

There was a report on on forum TVPadtalk that TVPad had planned to shutdown the service for TVPad 1-3 commencing January 1st, 2016.

I had a chat with the live support on the official TVPad site and the rep did confirm this.

I don’t think they understand the impact of shutting down their previous devices. As a user of TVPad, we must let this company know.

Let’s organize a email petition and send it to their upper management. Although it may not be worth anything but we still have to let them know.

Feel free to discuss this on the comment under!

Tvpad 忠实用户上


Dear TVPAd upper management,

I am not satisfy with your plan of shutting down TVPad 1, 2 ,3.

I am a loyal user of TVPad, but after this incident I will stop using and boycott TVPad. I will tell me friend to stop buying TVPad

Please reconsider your plan.

Sincerely Loyal TVPad User



Dear reseller,

Because of TVPad 1,2,3 hardware cannot support our upgrade, due to that reason we can no longer support the regular usage. Because of this we will create a pop up suggesting users to upgrade to TVPad 4

The window will say:

Dear user: TVPad will upgrade the backend system, because of the hardware requirement of this upgrade your TVPad cannot support it. Your device will be shutdown on 2016, Jan, 1st. To ensure the normal operations, we recommend you to upgrade to TVpad. You can enter your old MAC address on our official site to get a discount on TVPad4.

The window will pop up starting at Dec, 21, to match up with our upgrade promotion.
Due to this, please be prepare. If you have any questions, please contact me.

    My theory on this shutdown…

    A) A few weeks ago somebody reported TVPad reached an agreement with DISH. However no confirmation from neither party.
    B) Our domain was taken down + TVPad started shutting down their service for Legacy TVPads
    TVPad is giving a percentage of each sales of TVPad 4 to Dish/Korean company. Which is why they are also forcing TVPad 3 users to upgrade.

    What do you think ?

  • 鳳凰一輝

    I wanna complaint about this shutdown via email. What is their official email address? Please advise.

  • Howard

    My tvpad 3 has stopped working even with vpn. So what is the situation with tvpad 4? Is it working without vpn? How do I know I wont have to buy a tvpad 5?

    • Jimmy Ngai

      I can’t get the TVpad 4 working actually, not sure when it’s going to be back up.

      • Padman

        What’s the issue with your tvpad 4 ?

  • Vince Liang

    Personally, I am very disappointed because none of TVpad 1-3 users were given formal notice in advance.

    Given the track record, I would wait and see before buying TVpad 4 for fear that they are trying to sell their remaining stock before TVpad final closure and start up a new platform and new TVpad the Second again.

    • Padman

      Definitely wouldn’t recommend buying TVPad if they do close the content on Jan 1st.

  • badbob001

    The tvpad4 is already two years old. How long will they keep supporting that?

  • bbb

    There are no new episode added to the quick view channels anymore. No updates for at least a week now. I am on TvPad2. Are you guys with Tvpad 4 getting new episodes on HK quick View?

    • Padman

      TvPad 4 works

  • Kupo

    How can I make it work to see Korean content?

    • Padman

      You can’t TVPad 1 – 3 are getting shut down

  • VegasSmitty

    Was nice while it lasted, but I’m not wasting any more $$$ on a bunch that can’t even update the DNS.

  • Padman

    Seems like legacy TVPads are still working as of Jan, 3, 2016

  • Kitty

  • George Li

  • Karlo Cheung

  • LL

    Any way to repurpose these tvpad with other android OS on it?

    • Padman

      No, but you can run phantoman app on it to run some manual streams

  • Ray

    I have TVPAD1,3&4 but now 1,2 & 3 were shut down. It is not fair, at least the service of 1,2,&3 should remain unchanged even though they can’t be upgraded. How about TVPAD4 if TVPAD5 on sale, keep on purchasing the new one?

  • Ray

    Agree with Howard, are we going to buy TVpads 5, 6, 7 etc continuously whenever they make the SHUTDOWN?

  • vinh ly

    I’m having issues with the Tvpad 4.
    only afew channel seems to be working but none of the HK channels seem to work
    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?
