WeTek Play2
Kii Pro
(You can also buy TV Tuner like D202 DVB-T2 with a micro USB female to USB male adapter, and plug it to any android TV box...)
I'm aware of Videostrong KII Pro, but this device is not going to make Post#1 because:

a) Doubtful Firmware support from Videostrong (see the CNX-software.com website comments)
b) Android Kodi still has serious Bugs on this box due to Firmware issues.
c) AC3 audio on some HD channels will not output any sound due to no Dolby Digital (AC3) licence to allow this box to decode AC3 to 2.0 PCM when using Android.
d) No English support forum from Videostrong. This is definitely needed for after sales TV Tuner support.
e) The primary AMLogic Community LibreELEC developer kszaq is not interested in developing for this DVB device.

Its a DIY device and belongs in that category with all the other DIY AMLogic S905 boxes.

I will however look into that TV Tuner - the D202 DVB-T/T2 you mentioned, especially if it is Plug and Pray for Android devices.
There are even cheaper OTG attached tuners like this DVB-T only one I found here
Reliability looks questionably though.
