The Best Media Device for IPTV in 2020

The Best Device for IPTV in 2020

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television.  This new inexpensive technology is replacing the traditional expensive 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 as well as a huge updated video library. 

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: IPTV SILO does not own or operate any IPTV service. IPTV SILO 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. Thank you.

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 or MAG, Formluer, Dreamlinek…etc. 

This device’s popularity stems from the ability to install 3rd party apps such as STBemu, SMART IPTV, IPTV APK’s..etc.

With a media device, users can install an IPTV application for live streaming, as well as other apps for viewing Movies, TV Shows, Music, and more.

IPTVSILO has created a detailed guide that will show you the best way to Jailbreak your media box 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:

  • Payment Options
  • Number of Connections
  • Provided Channels
  • EPG Availability
  • Price
  • VPN Compatibility
  • Customer Support
  • Premium Sports Options

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.

Because of the uncertainty of these apps, IPTV SILO 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 (ask you free trial here). I always suggest testing any IPTV Service prior to purchasing to make sure it suits your needs.

Is IPTV Illegal?

Some IPTV services are illegal and some are legal.

It’s very difficult for us (IPTV SILO 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. One example was SET TV. 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.

“IPTV SILO 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. The same is true for NVIDIA SHIELD through Google Play Store.

Due to the resources available to these large companies, they can easily determine whether a service carries the proper licensing or not.

U.S. lawmakers are in the process of introducing a bill that will criminalize illegal streaming and you can read more about that via link below.

United States Lawmakers Push to Criminalize Streaming

 

Protect Yourself with a VPN

You can usually protect yourself with a VPN when using an IPTV service.

Running a VPN will make it impossible for your Internet Service Provider (ISP), government, app developers, and hackers from logging what you are accessing while online.

A VPN will make you anonymous while using the Internet.

One thing to note when testing different providers is whether or not their service works with a VPN. If the IPTV Service is not “location locked”, a VPN should work fine with the service.

Its important to know that some ISPs block illegal IPTV services and the only way to access them is by using a VPN.

A VPN encrypts your connection to the Internet so it is impossible for your ISP to censor what you want to access online.

Some ISP’s even throttle download speeds for anyone using 3rd party apps to stream live television. For example, I have found that some of the popular IPTV services will not work for me unless I’m connected to my VPN.

IPTV SILO does not recommend using any IPTV service that doesn’t work in conjunction with a VPN.

 

How To Install IPTV

As stated above, IPTV Services are available for installation on just about any device you prefer. Usually, you can install these apps as a standalone APK (Android App) or within a media center such as Kodi.

I always prefer the standalone APK’s but this is solely based on personal preference. Many prefer adding them to Kodi to keep all their cord-cutting apps in one location!

We created an Ultimate IPTV Guide you can find below, which will show you how to side-load an IPTV Service onto a streaming device such as the Firestick or Android TV Box.

The application used to install the IPTV Services below is called Downloader.

If you are using an Android TV Box, NVIDIA SHIELD, Mi Box, etc. you can follow along with these guides by installing Downloader on your device. Use the link below for that tutorial.

 

IPTV Glossary

The following terms are often used quite frequently when speaking about IPTV. The following glossary should help you get up to speed with the proper lingo.

Catch Up: A feature that allows you to view a past recording of a specific television show/event. Catch Up episodes are usually only available for a few days after the show has aired. IPTV services that do offer this feature usually only include popular channels. You can think of Catch Up as a time-sensitive DVR (digital video recorder).

Connection: The number of devices that you can use simultaneously on an IPTV service. Example: If your chosen package comes with three connections, you can use their service on up to 3 devices at the same time. Some IPTV providers offer multi-screen and each active screen counts as one connection. Additional connections can usually be purchased at the time of purchase through most services.

EPG: Electronic program guide. This is an electronic listing of upcoming/past shows laid out in a nice graphical interface.

IP Location Locked: Whether or not the service may be used in different locations than where it was first registered from. If the service is IP Location Locked, you may only use the service on the IP address that was used to register for the service.

ISP: Internet Service Provider.

M3U URL: A URL channels list provided by an IPTV service that allows you to use 3rd party players such as TiviMate, Perfect Player, and IPTV Smarters.

PPV: Pay Per View sporting events.

VOD: Video on demand. A video on demand section allows you to play movies and/or TV shows through the service. This is usually a limited number and includes most recently created works.

VPN: Virtual Private Network. It allows you to connect to the Internet anonymously by encrypting your connection. A VPN will mask your IP address and prevent your ISP, government, hackers, and app developers from logging what you are doing online.

 

Best IPTV Services

NOTE: We have featured some services on this page that have become popular that they are no longer taking new customers. If that is the case, the service will no longer be listed under “Best IPTV Services” since they are no longer available.

Below, you will find a list of both verified and unverified IPTV services.

1.Unverified IPTV Services

NOTE: Since these apps aren’t available for install through Amazon or Google Play, we don’t know if they hold the proper licensing for the channels that they deliver. Always use a VPN with these unverified IPTV services.

 

How to Pay for IPTV Anonymously

We always get this question.

How can I pay for IPTV anonymously?

If you aren’t comfortable paying for an IPTV service with your credit card we suggest using Blur by Abine.

This service allows you to mask your credit card by creating virtual burner cards. This will ensure that your actual credit card is never compromised.

Philo TV

philo tv review

If you want a cord-cutting experience that’s on the cheaper side, then Philo is a good option.

Formerly known as Tivli, this San Francisco startup was launched in 2009 at Harvard University and after nine years, already reached an estimated 50,000-subscribers.
