This new inexpensive technology is replacing the traditional cable and satellite services for many families around the world.
You can think of IPTV as cable television on steroids, through the Internet, but for a fraction of the price.
Most IPTV services provide hundreds to thousands of channels in addition to the professional sports season passes for football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and more.
Most also provide full access to Pay-Per-View sporting events.
IPTV applications are usually available as stand-alone applications (Streaming Apps) or through the popular media center app called Kodi.
There are some free IPTV services but the quality is usually lousy and you can’t depend on them.
You will see below that we feature both free and premium services.
If you want a quality service, don’t bother with the free options.
Before we get started: TROYPOINT does not own or operate any IPTV service.
TROYPOINT does not receive any revenue or affiliate commissions from any service.
All support requests must go directly through your chosen IPTV provider.
Support questions will not be answered in the comments section for any IPTV service.
What is the Best Device for IPTV in 2020?
Currently, the most popular way to watch IPTV is through a media streaming device such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K. Fire TV Stick 4K Shop
This device’s popularity stems from the ability to install 3rd party apps such as IPTV APK’s.
This is often referred to as “jailbreaking”.
With a jailbroken Firestick, users can install an IPTV application for live streaming, as well as other apps for viewing Movies, TV Shows, Music, and more, ALL FOR FREE.
TROYPOINT has created a detailed guide that will show you the best way to Jailbreak your firestick for the ultimate streaming experience:
Other streaming devices may be used as well such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, Mi Box, and generic Android TV Boxes that are distributed from China.
We have compiled a list of the best Android TV Boxes that will help you pick the perfect system for your needs.
What to Look for When Shopping for IPTV
When it comes to selecting an IPTV Service, a little bit of research may be required.
Here are the things to look for before purchasing an IPTV Provider:
There are literally thousands of options for IPTV streaming.
Many of these provide similar structure and content, but not all services are the same.
One thing to look for when searching for a provider is payment options. IPTV EPG
Because of the uncertainty of these apps, TROYPOINT always suggests paying for IPTV services on a month-to-month basis.
That way, if your provider goes offline or you find a better one, you are not tied down.
For those who want to stay completely anonymous when purchasing an IPTV Service, we suggest using Blur.
Abine Blur is a safe and anonymous way to make payments online and keep your identity secure!
Another thing to consider when choosing a service is the number of connections it offers.
Sometimes, users can view IPTV on up to five devices simultaneously, while others allow only one.
(Oftentimes, different packages are provided with connection and price options)
IPTV Services come in all shapes and sizes and prices will vary.
However, these usually range somewhere between $5-$20 per month, saving users hundreds of dollars a year.
Some of the higher-priced options may provide added benefits such as VOD (Video-On-Demand), 24/7 Customer Support, and more.
One of the more popular benefits of a higher-priced IPTV Service is a working EPG.
An EPG or Electronic Program Guide allows users to lookup programs in advance and searches for viewing content.
This is a similar guide to those available with a cable box or DISH/Direct TV installment, but for a fraction of the cost!
Many companies offer users the chance to test their products out with a free trial.
I always suggest testing any IPTV Service prior to purchasing to make sure it suits your needs.
Some IPTV services are illegal and some are legal.
It’s very difficult for us (TROYPOINT personnel) to determine whether an IPTV service holds the proper licensing to broadcast their channels.
We have reached out to providers in the past asking if they hold the proper licensing.
They claimed that their service was legal but was then shut down due to copyright infringement.
Due to the difficulty in determining whether an IPTV service is legal or not, we take the following stance.
“TROYPOINT does not verify whether or not IPTV services carry the proper licensing for the content that they broadcast.
The end-user shall be solely liable for any application or service used on their streaming devices.”
If a reputable distributor such as Amazon includes an IPTV service in their app store, you can be certain that it is legal.
