Can you run these IPTV apps on a fire stick or would it not have enough capacity?
Sorry in advance if it is a silly question.
Yes. I have Perfect Player hosted by fabiptv on my Firestick. Changed over from flawless at the weekend there as flawless wanted paid in bitcoin and I hadn't the energy to fanny about with it. If you want instructions PM me.

I'd be wary of spending much on Fab IPTV. The big boys are all under pressure and likely to be closed. Its already starting. I the small independent ones you want to be looking at.

Boycey - There are two apps you can use for a smart TV.

Smart IPTV - cheapest but also the most unreliable
Smart STB - 25 euro after a free trial for 1 week. Much better than the other one. It is a Mag box emulator which means, if your provider supplies it, you will get all the features from the Mag. The best being catch-up if your provider does it. Mine does and I get 14 days of catch up on 99% of the channels which means I cant ever miss a show.

Should have also said if its an Android TV or Box I would recommend the following two Apps

STB EMU
Nitro STB

Again, both mag box emulators.

Perfect Player I would stay a million miles away from because any supplier who is giving you there M3U files is basically sharing their server location with  the world and will be targeted by SKY and the like. Quite a lot of suppliers are refusing to supply m3u files now.

STB EMU and Nitro will both go onto firestick. STB EMU is in the app store but i think you have to side load Nitro.

Itchy, yeah I forgot about smart STB. I have it for the sub you recommended me but my old sub still works on smartiptv and I tend to default to it as its quicker to load and I don't find it unreliable at all... Obviously no catch-up but to be honest I've never missed it

Smart IPTV struggles when you have a provider with a lot of content. Thats the main difference.

They only offer monthly subscriptions, so the most you can spend is 9.50.

Are you saying you have the smart TV or are thinking of buying one with a view to putting iptv on it?

Right, download either of the apps discussed above and sign up to the provider of your choice. You can use the one the lads are quoting above or I'll message you one that I'm using at 20 per 6 months.
