Software license FAQs:
All VRX040s NetPlay licenses are tied to the NetPlay Manager (NVMM) hardware in your system. When you receive NetPlay Manager, please complete the software registration in order to bind your new NetPlay licenses to your NetPlay Manager.

NetPlay TV and NetPlay Mobile licenses are perpetual lifetime licenses.  New releases with new features may require additional payment to enable the new functionality.  However, there is no requirement to purchase these new features in order to continue using your software licenses (without the new features).

Licenses are not attached to individual Android streaming media boxes or TVs.  Your NetPlay Manager will verify if you have sufficient licenses for the number of sink devices you enable in the system.  This means you can easily swap Android streaming media boxes without changing your licenses.

Licenses may be transferred between NetPlay Manager hardwares.  In the case of hardware failure inside the warranty period, there is no charge for this service.  In other cases, there is a small charge for this service.  In all cases, the NetPlay Manager hardware you are transferring from must be surrendered to Video Storm LLC.

Licenses may be refunded within the return period for the NetPlay Manager or VRX020 hardware they are assigned to. If the NetPlay Manager or VRX020 is outside its return period, the NetPlay licenses are no longer refundable. The NetPlay Manager or VRX020 hardware must be returned to Video Storm LLC in order to refund the NetPlay TV and NetPlay Mobile licenses.


  • For each system, purchase a NetPlay Manager (NVMM). In conjunction, you need to purchase VRX040s corresponding to this device in the same online purchase order. A single order of NVMM and VRX040s cannot be split between multiple systems.
  • If you are just adding more VRX040s to an existing NetPlay video system, you can purchase the additional units for the same system in a single new order. Please make sure you already have the NetPlay Manager (NVMM) as you will need it to register the new VRX040s licenses.
  • This product with its license is compatible with NetPlay Manager or an existing VRX020 with a NetPlay Mobile license.

VRX040s is only available through authorized dealers
