What is the best IPTV ?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to this IPTV stuff, actually didn't know these services existed. Can someone cut through the BS for me though and tell me what the best device and service and where to get it from? I want HD and I want english menus and content. I read about some that its mostly in Chinese. I plan to use this in Thailand and take it back to PH with me (on their joke of an internet).

Thanks

Pay-to-play, Free or illegal content?

"I plan to use this in Thailand and take it back to PH with me (on their joke of an internet)."

If this is true, then I believe you will be very disappointed and regret spending any money on it.

Well, I want HBO and all that, Discovery, all the normal stuff. I don't mind paying for it but it didn't seem like those packages were all too legal.

Yeah, well I'm actually getting fiber soon in the Philippines so I'm hoping that it would be useful but I'm not going to hold my breath. If it sucks, I'll just use it here in Thailand.

Is the a reason you don't like the offerings delivered off Ku or C Band Satellite?

While iptv really just means "Internet-streamed content", i like to think of iptv vendors being similar to a Sat or Cable TV company that grabs content from a variety of sources, bundles them into packages, then makes that available for distribution to... anywhere over the Internet (though many have geo-location contract restrictions).

iptv can be a do-it-yourself affair (and all the work that goes along with that), or you can get a 'system' that someone has designed that's available to PCs, mobile devices, special Set-Top-Boxes, etc, that run natively or possible require special software/hardware that deliver a custom menu and easily chosen content.

What have you looked at so far?

I don't own anything in Thailand, use hotels and apartments so using my own SAT is out. I'm a tech guy..dd-wrt..all that crap. I was just interested in these plug and play STB with all the content. While tech is my job I really don't have the time to be hunting this stuff down to do it myself. I'd rather be doing something else when I'm not working. Haven't looked at much just saw on a Thailand blog some guy talking about it.

Suggest you look at the following websites for a LIVE PRESENTATION of how a service might work.

TOT IPTV -- Streaming Channels (many of the Choice Preview channels will stream without being a member)

AIO TV -- WEB TV | ON DEMAND (logged in as Guest)

TVCatchup -- Channel List

ThaiExpatTV -- Channel List (sorry, no demo but the is a Free Trial)

ILikeHD Channel List (sorry, no demo)

Popcorn Time

Crackle

Kodi | xbmc (then add-in your selected services)

Of course there are also iptv-like services out of the US that require special configuration to view

Roku *

Hulu *

Netflix *

* GeoLocation restriction may require special configuration

Take a look at these previous ThaiVisa threads discussing IPTV

Install the ip tv list updater year dreambox media center plugins ip tv from nearly every country in the world

Can also watch Thai tv thaicom here in Europe and via versa when I miss the soap opera to much! Lol

Best and cheapest deal invest around 140€ for a slingbox connect to a diseq motor , and receive all satellites from your home country anywhere in the world around 7000 tv channels from European satellites!

Hd signals begin with 5 Mbit stream and also with a half Mbit DSL upload phone line is enough to stream on any iPhone!

So it's not nesarsary to buy any ip tv box because the signal can disappear

, when I use my self installed setup the signal is always here, never interrupts , and never disapear!

Hi JThai, if you are new to IPTV, the easiest to use is ilikeHD, it installs in your

browser,and you can stream from your PC,Mac,Android to your Tv.

They have all the channels you could possibly want,and at the right price

350 THB p.m., no need to buy boxes,no contracts,just month by month,

they have servers in BKK so works even if your Internet is not so good.

wouldn't bother with ilikeHD unless you have 10mb plus, actually that goes for most of the companies mentioned.

Don't like to argue with Geordie, but my internet speed dropped off last week to between 3-4 mb and ilikeHD stopped every minute or so. I got on the blower to 3bb, they put me back up to 11mb where it should have been and I have had no issues.

I assumed because my connection is a champ here at the hotel for netflix /chrome cast that I was going to be good on all service providers. That might not be the case though I guess.

Just run a simple speed test on it JThai (www.speedtest.net be sure to select the Bangkok server). You will need to bare in mind, with a shared connection that it will be slower at peak times though.

Except it isn't.

There are numerous players in the IPTV space worldwide. Many of them could find multiple clients here willing to throw money at them but, possibly due to lack of mass adoption elsewhere or proper product promotion, we just don't know about them here on ThaiVisa.

I would take a guess and say a few are legitimate. some quasi-legitimate, and many are just misappropriating content.

Great potential.

Hi JThai, ilikeHD will not work outside Thailand, you could try these

sites cucirca.eu stream-tv.me watchseries.it solarmovies.is, they

work well for me and are free.

The Internet in Thailand does go up and down, the kids been off

school does not help,playing games and facebook all day.

Just had a letter from TOT today, which i use, offering to up the

bandwidth for the same price,I don't know if they just pull numbers

from the air*,or if you actually will get a better service? maybe for

the first month,then it starts dropping down. * or somewhere else

beginning with an A.

regards worgeordie

PS if using the first 3 sites above, use either vidbull,gorillavid,sockshare or firedrive to stream from.
