IPTV/Streaming service suggestions?


Recommended Posts

Hi there.  Not sure if this is the right forum for this question.  Could anyone suggest a decent IPTV service that I can watch on my android TV or Firestick?  I have used a couple this year and they always turn out to be really poor, buffering like crazy despite having fiber internet.  

 

Any suggestions appreciated but please note I absolutely dont want to use a reseller service.  Im looking for a direct provider.

 

Thanks

I've used different IPTV servers over the years , the best of them all is Star7 live,only problem there is no EPG,but no buffering.I also have IPTV Cheap and use xsteam codes,great EPG ,now and again a little blip but I switch to Star 7 when I know the programme guide. Have tried them all and used different players. I'm using OTT navigator as my player for IPTV cheap and it's the best.Tivimate and the rest don't come close to OTT

I, and a few friends, use Pulse TV, 1000 Baht a month or 10,000 per annum, gives you everything you need including sports, never had a problem with buffering and if there is the slightest problem their customer service is second to none.

Does this come with a set top box that you have to plug in to the TV or can I get it straight from my PC?

I have a box that is hard wired to my router, HDMI to my TV, I just finished watching this weeks episode of Star Trek: Discovery, most of the movies in my favourites are 2020, admittedly some of the choices are rank due to COVID-19 but overall once production crews get up & running it'll get better.

 

I paid 4000k Baht more than 3 years ago, have had more than my money's worth with brand new movies, series etc.

 

And no monthly subscription, but I don't watch a lot of live sport except for F1 & Superbikes etc.

Jailbreak it via YouTube tutorials.  Once you jailbreak it, there are many options and if and when they stop working to your preference, there are always updated options available.

I've been with PulseTV for over 3 years.  I have a set-top box (2 boxes actually) that connects to the TV.  Everything has been set up for you - ideal for technophobes.

otherwise it requires a set top box.

That explains why when I joined up for my "free trial", I couldn't get anything to work!!

I've improved the IPTV buffering on my Firestick by connecting directly to my router with an ethernet cable using an adaptor I bought from Amazon. It also helps if you close down progs running in the background using an app called 'background apps & process list' as this frees up ram. The budget IPTV are all pretty much the same and as the OP commented are supplied by resellers. I currently pay 3200 baht PA which allows me 2 logins. The live TV is not so good but the films and box sets are excellent.

Thanks for the reply.  I dont mean to sound ungrateful but that is the worst IPTV I have ever seen!  I just signed up for a 1 month trial and will probably never use it again after testing for 1 hour.  There is no decent listing format for a start, for example if you want to watch the football in UK there is no 'sky sports' or 'BT SPorts' folder.  Everything is just under UK so you have to open UK folder and scroll through hundreds of chanels.  MOst of the chanels are SD even though listed as HD and there is no FHD.  Plus, the whole menu is filled with global chanels.  The movies are terrible, as are the series.  

 

Honestly, thats probably the worst one i have ever seen!

 

Again, thanks for the heads up though - dont mean to sound like a ahole saying all this 🙂

I use this one https://biptv.best/iptv3/

Not perfect, but i don't think many of them are, has a 48 hour trial period and has easier groups and more choices.

Also price is half the one you recommend. I found support pretty good.
