Having an Android TV or Box ( this includes TV sticks like MI Box, Firestick…) is the ultimate hardware setup for IPTV because it gives you complete freedom of what IPTV players to use.
IPTV Smarters Pro is in my opinion is the best free IPTV player you can use because it has a simple and great-looking user interface plus it gives many premium features free of charge.
in this article, you will learn how you can install and configure IPTV Smarters pro on your Android TV/BOX to stream IPTV.
WHAT YOU NEED TO HAVE
no matter what devive you’re using there are 3 essential steps you have to follow.
1- Getting an IPTV Subscription: if you haven’t done this yet you can check this article where I shared how to choose the best IPTV provider for your needs.
2- A VPN Subscription: in most cases, it’s not required but it’s highly recommended you can check this guide on what are the best VPN services for streaming IPTV and why you need to use one.
3- Install an IPTV player and connect to your IPTV provider: this is what you will learn in this guide.
FIRST STEP: Install IPTV Smarters Pro on your Android TV
most of the time all you will have to do is search for it on the play store and click install.
but from my experience IPTV players can get removed from the play store ( temporarily or permanently ) which is why I covered also how you can sideload IPTV apps on your device using the downloader app.
first, try to search for IPTV Smarters Pro on the play store if you find it skip the following and go straight to Step two where I covered how you can configure this app.
but if by the time you’re reading this article IPTV Smarters Pro got removed from the play store you can check this guide on how to sideload IPTV Apps on your Android TV using the downloader app.
SECOND STEP: CONFIGURE IPTV SMARTERS PRO ON YOUR ANDROID TV AND CONNECT TO THE PROVIDER SERVER.
What I like most about IPTV Smarters Pro is the onboarding experience which makes it very intuitive and fast.
1- open the app
Search for the app icon on your Android TV Box and click on it to open the app.
2- Accept the terms
Like any other app you will have to accept the terms before using it all you have to do is click ok.
3- Connect using the Xtream Codes API
IPTV Smarters Pro gives you many options to connect to their server the most common ones are the m3u and the Xtream Codes API.
I prefer using the Xtream Codes because it’s much faster, all you have to do is click on Xtream Codes API as shown on the screenshot below.
4- Fill in the info that your provider have sent you.
When you subscribe to an IPTV provider they will send you your account details which basically are a special link with your account user and password to connect to their server.
They can also send the Xtream Codes if not you can extract it easily from the m3u link as shown below.
the m3u link always comes like this.
http ://line.iptvdomain.com/get.php?username=XXXXX&password=XXXXX&type=m3u )
you will notice that this link has a username=XXXXX and a password=XXXXX ( in your case it will be a series of random numbers and letters )
copy and paste them on the Xtream Codes login alongside the server URL which is the first part of the link. http://line.iptvdomain.com
of course, your provider will give you a different link that. so make sure to right the one they gave you and not the one I am writing here.
after filliing the form click add user.
5- Enjoy your Time 🙂
after your IPTV player downloads the channels you will see a dashboard like this one where you can browse all the content your provider has given you access to ( Live TV, Movies, Series…)
IPTV Smarters Pro is a great free option for streaming IPTV on your Android Box or TV, but keep in mind that with the free you might be missing a better user experience with other premium apps such as Tivimate.
if you’re just starting with IPTV there is no problem with using IPTV Smarters Pro to get used to the content and be familiar with how IPTV works but at some point, you will need more freedom to customize the channels list and more features to enjoy an enhanced user experience.
when the time comes consider giving Tivimate a go which is a very cheap yet powerful IPTV player that will make your streaming experience much better.
