Best IPTV Services

It’s a cord-cutting article and here I am going to list out some of the best IPTV service providers for Firestick and Android TV Box. Even these IPTV services also supporting other platforms and operating systems such as- Android TV, Android Phones/Tablets, iOS devices, Windows PC, macOS, etc. If you need a top IPTV service provider for any of these devices, check the provider’s list and their IPTV services reviews in this article.

What Is IPTV and How it Works?

How IPTV Works

IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television and it’s an advanced technology to watch live tv channels and shows in a very cost-effective manner. Millions of people around the world have switched to IPTV to cut the cord of traditional cable TV. It’s because IPTV provides flexibility and also cheaper than satellite tv.

Getting started with IPTV is extremely easy and quick. You just need to buy the IPTV subscription from a good provider and install the app on supported devices. The benefits of IPTV is, you can watch it on our TV, PC, and Smartphones also. So, we can say that IPTV is a mobile version of live television channels.

If you have got an Android TV, Firestick, Android Box, or any other device that supports app installations, you can enjoy IPTV service on that. It’s primarily used for the Live Streaming of TV channels but most of the IPTV subscription providers support VOD (Video On Demand).

Most of the IPTV services provides hundred to thousands of tv channels at a very low price. However, some provide channels packages and some allow Pay-Per-View options where customers can create their own package.

What is the Best Device for IPTV in 2020?

IPTV providers generally provide APK (Application) to watch the channels. But, many out of them also allow using a web interface to watching tv channels. So, an Android interface is better for cord-cutting. If you have got a Smart TV that supports Android OS, you can watch IPTV without any issue.

Currently, the majority of people using media streaming devices like Amazon Firestick, Fire TV Stick 4K, or Fire TV Cube for watching IPTV. Amazon Fire TV devices running on the Android-based custom operating system called Fire OS.

The device allows users to install IPTV APK or any 3rd-party applications and it’s termed as ‘Jailbreaking’.

With Jailbroken Firestick, users can install the IPTV Apk and many other third-party applications that provide free streaming of movies and tv shows.

Even, I have written a separate guide to jailbreak Amazon Firestick for free IPTV streaming. I’ve also prepared a list of APK’s that offer free movies and tv shows streaming. Find both the articles below-

Is IPTV Legal?

I explored some forums and Reddit questions, I found that many users don’t know whether an IPTV is Legal or not? So, I want to clear your doubts here.

There are many IPTV services that are legal to use. But, the majority of cheap IPTV services are illegal. You can take the example of Netflix/Prime Video and Putlocker sites.

Both of these are providing Movies and Videos. But, Netflix or Amazon Prime Video is totally legal to use, while many Putlockers and torrents are illegal.

Whether IPTV is legal or not, it totally depends upon IPTV providers. If a service provider is holding the license to streaming tv channels, it’s legal to use. But, most of the popular IPTV providers are not having complete licenses and documents.

Protect yourself with a good VPN

IPTV VPN

I always recommend you to protect your privacy with a good VPN. If you want yourself safe, always use a VPN to keep your IP address and activities anonymous.

A VPN will mask your activities and hide your IP location from ISP, government, app developer, and hackers. So, it’s impossible for them from logging your online activities.

Apart from this, many countries and ISP’s block some IPTV services to access. A VPN will also bypass this restriction and you can watch everything you want to watch.

I found that I can not watch some IPTV unless I am not connected to my Express VPN.

Here I’m going to list out some of the Best IPTV Services in 2020. But, before listing out top IPTV providers, I would like to introduce some of the important terms and abbreviations.

Conclusion

A few months back, authorities targeted Xtream Codes and due to that, thousands of IPTV providers were stopped working. Xtream Codes was the most popular IPTV software that backup IPTV providers to manage users’ data and services. After that, lot’s of IPTV services got offline. Some of them recovered but stopped new user registrations.

Area 51 IPTV and many others were affected by those changes and Area 51 IPTV is no longer taking new registrations. So, I’m constantly updating this list with the Best IPTV provider for Firestick.

If you had a better experience with your IPTV provider, please share your suggestion in the comment box. We’ll test and add our views on that IPTV in the next update. Feel free to let us know if any Xtream Codes affected IPTV is back online recently.
