Samsung engineers are the experts in screens and that’s the main reason why Samsung Electronics is the world’s largest TV manufacturer.
unfortunately while their picture and hardware quality tops the software part sucks when it comes to IPTV, TizenOS ( the operating system for Samsung Tvs ) has many limitations when streaming IPTV.
1- You can’t use the VPN
the VPN has become an essential part when streaming IPTV, unfortunately, you can’t find any VPN apps on their app store and if your ISP is applying restrictions on your IPTV provider you will not be able to watch any content.
2-You can’t download many great IPTV players
Most IPTV players are available on Android what makes things even more difficult for Samsung TV users is the removal of many popular IPTV players from the app store and restricting many others to users in the USA or a certain country only.
not to mention that IPTV Smarters Pro for instance although it’s free for end-users they require IPTV providers to pay a fee to authorize the connection for their domain name.
which means that even free IPTV players on Android are Not in Samsung Tizen OS.
The Best Way to Stream IPTV on a Samsung TV
Luckily you can bypass all of these restrictions by using a streaming device such as a Firestick, a Chromecast with google TV, or any other Android streaming devices.
using a device like a Chromecast with google TV will not just give you the ability to download VPN apps and other great IPTV players but also the user interface will be much more convenient and optimized for streaming IPTV.
Getting a Firestick or a Chromecast is not that expensive investment because most devices cost less than 50$ and they are widely available no matter where are you in the world.
LOOKING FOR THE OPTIMAL SETUP? HERE IT IS.

2- Get a VPN subscription and install the VPN app on your TV ( arround 3.5$/month )
3- Get a Stable IPTV Subscription ( 7$-25$/ month )
4- Get Tivimate ( 19$/year for 5 devices )
