ZAAPTV IPTV Comparison


Find out which ZAAPTV is more suited for your entertainment needs.

At the beginning of this year ZAAPTV released a new IPTV device named CLOODTV 4U. Despite CLOODTV being newer it is not a replacement or upgrade of the HD509N and both models are being offered at the same time.  Our sources tell us that ZAAPTV will keep both models in production also there will be a planned release for the HD609N by next year.

Considering the huge price difference, we received many emails from our subscribers seeking advise on which one to buy HD509N or CLOODTV.

We have compiled a comparison table to show the main differences between the two devices.  Many of the capabilities are exactly the same. Yet the HD509N seems to have a greater advantage over CLOODTV. Following is a description of the key differences:

No Buffereing Technology (winner is CLOODTV):

As ZAAPTV claims the No Buffering Technology allow the user to switch between channels instantaneously without the small delay that HD509N users experience while browsing through channels.

Faster CPU  (winner is HD509N):

CLOODTV comes with the Ali Chipset and with a slower CPU than the HD509N Rockchip Dual Core 1.5 Ghz. The HD509N also comes with a Quad Tech GPU technology and 1 GB DDR3 memory ready for downloading many apps.

Flash Card (winner is HD509N):

HD509N comes with a TF Flash card slot which can be used to expand the memory capabilities and install additional programs from an SD flash card.

Apps Marketplace Access (winner is HD509N):

HD509N Android based system comes with access to the ZAAPTV Marketplace for Apps and Games.  With ZAAPTV HD509N you can download many apps like the famous XBMC (Kodi), Facebook, Skype, NetFlix and many more.

Can Install Kodi (XBMC) (winner is HD509N):

With Kodi, previously known as XBMC, you can watch thousands of movies, TV shows and live streaming channels from around the world. While it requires a few steps for installation once installed and configured, many users enjoy watching latest (In-Theater) movies, latest (recently aired) TV shows, and many more live streaming channels from around the world.  Kodi (XBMC) is available only on the HD509N and not available on CLOODTV.

Finally the Price (winner is HD509N):

At $399 vs. $299 and unless you are really picky about the instantaneous channel flipping feature of the CLOODTV, the ZAAPTV HD509N seems to be the better choice feature wise and price wise.
