1OTT a.k.a 1 Over The Top is a very new product launched in Malaysia early this year, this is a media player that lets you stream on demand videos from various sources on the net and also features a free IPTV service for a one shot fee at RM429. The company behind this product is Syabas Technology Sdn. Bhd and Vidcrowmedia Sdn. Bhd as the product’s distributor. Instead of hosting the content, the company hired a team of people to update the media contents daily from its respective sources so that users are able to watch the latest videos as soon as it has been made available online (for e.g. Hong Kong TVB Dramas), the way of navigating media contents are smartly presented in a thumbnail user interface instead of going through a web browser, which is extremely friendly for computer illiterate users.

The remote control is rather straightforward as well, we have also been told that we are also able to control the media player by downloading the 1OTT app from the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
The ports of the 1OTT Media Player, instead of a USB port for plugging in your external hard drive, it features a MicroSD slot for storage expansion, otherwise the input ports are pretty standard in media players today. And yes, you can power the device using a power bank or your computer’s USB port because it merely requires a USB power of only 1A.
