In this post you will find the list of the best IPTV players for Fire Stick, Fire TV, Android TV Box, Smart TV, Android Phones, iOS and more. The IPTV players described here can be used with many IPTV subscriptions. The important thing to note is that the apps listed below are player only and do not provide any IPTV channels.

To use these IPTV players, you need to have an IPTV subscription. Also, the current IPTV subscription must support M3U or EPG playlists. IPTV players can be used with official and third party IPTV services with M3U playlists and / or EPG support.

What is IPTV?

It is any app or service that can play IPTV channels. So, buy an IPTV subscription from your provider and play the channels using an IPTV player.

Most IPTV providers have their own apps or clients. You can install the app separately on supported devices. However, if you use multiple IPTV subscriptions, management becomes easier with an IPTV player. You don't need to install multiple apps for different subscriptions. You can access all of them through a single IPTV player.

Most IPTV players require you to login with M3U playlist URL or EPG URL. Some even support API logins. This means your existing IPTV provider must support M3U or EPG URL or API access (if your IPTV player supports it).

Usually, when you subscribe to the IPTV service, the login details of the M3U or EPG URL and API are sent to you in your registered email address. If you haven't received it, you may need to contact your IPTV service provider.

Advantages of using an IPTV player

Here are some of the reasons why you want to use an IPTV player on your IPTV provider's native app:

  • Usually, IPTV players are easier to use than native apps
  • IPTV players are generally supported on more devices than IPTV service provider APKs
  • You can set up and manage multiple IPTV subscriptions with a single app. You don't need to install multiple apps from multiple providers
  • IPTV players are officially available on most device platforms. Unlike native apps, they don't need to be ported sideways (except on Amazon Fire TV and FireStick)
