The IPTV Provider I use has made his own custom VPN @£30 for the year  ;D

Highly recommended.

Whoever has said that IPTV isnt needed for firesticks - if you want to watch any form of quality LIVE sport or Live TV then IPTV will be required
Yeah. Unfortunately I'd already subscribed to Nord before he got it set up. Are you on his new app?
Careful now

I am - i paid for a month of a vpn £10.

Ran out and signed straight up at 30 quid

Regarding blocking - there are some providers not blocking atm - however its a matter of time. Im on BT and it 100% wasnt working. soon as the vpn is turned on it works

I hope the Mod (Ziggy) is getting a kickback?

Also - internet providers have been blocking the live sports more and more - anyone running on iptv needs a vpn or you will be very P*SSed off when your footie stops 5 secs into the game

Have a mate who's struggling with it but I'm with Vodafone and all seems to be OK at the minute.

I have an IPTV sub (viewed on a non-HD, non-smart TV via an android box) and it's decent enough but when I view HD channels, it's pretty poor - some buffering and a lag between picture and sound. Some channels (e.g. Sky Atlantic) don't have a non-HD option so I don't have a choice

Is this purely down to my internet connection? Or could it be hardware related? Is there any settings I can change on my android box to fix it?

Do you know your internet speed? It's the most obvious thing to check first. Is it a wired connection or wifi?

Just tested it there now and it's ~40MB on a wired connection which is what the TV is on. Should that be enough?

I think I resolved it last night anyway - there was an option in the IPTV app to use a different player so I downloaded MK Players and it's running fine since

40mb/s is plenty.

Regarding audo player on iptv if you use auto it will change itself to the most reliable source.

I can find a film on the Yoda add on on my Firebox but my friend canít find it on her Yoda add on on her firestick

Must be a setting somewhere needs changed on the stick. Anyone recognise this problem ?
