Watch Live IPTV Streams of Cable TV and Satellite Channels from All Over the World
IPTV has become the next big thing when it comes to streaming television. No longer is this just limited to Kodi alone. Now there are some really great Roku channels, Apple TV and Android Apps. Use these apps to watch live HD IPTV Streams full of TV channels from all over the world for free.
While On Demand streaming is great. IPTV Streaming is the future of Streaming TV. What is IPTV Streaming Exactly?
There seems to be a lot of interest lately in IPTV, for those that are not sure how this all works here is what it is exactly. IPTV stands for (Internet Protocol Television) and is basically a live stream of a channel or on-demand content that is streamed over the Internet. This content can be free or fee-based. It uses video compression standards which include H.264 and MPEG 4(which work with Roku and Apple TV) and also Windows Media Video 9, VC1, DivX, XviD and Ogg Theora.
How to Watch FREE Live IPTV Channels
IPTV can be watched on many different devices. Here is a breakdown of popular platforms and apps that are typically used to watch live IPTV streams.
These are all apps and channels that use M3U files. To watch quality IPTV content you will need a good M3U provider and preferably one that gives you access to an electronic programming guide. This is where it can get tricky as some of the public M3U link lists are garbage. The streams are often poor quality and channels can often come and go. Some of the better M3U lists do require a monthly subscription but this gives you better reliability, links almost always work and many channels are in HD quality. Adding an m3u list to your app is as easy as pointing the app to a URL on the internet. Once this URL has been entered, your app will fill hundreds of channels from all over the world.
Some apps already come pre-configured with live IPTV streams for you. The problem with these is sometimes the links are down and channels don't come back up until the developer updates the app. Worse yet is to have a channel go down right during the best part of a TV show or movie. This is a lot like torture to some people. Unfortunately, this is the nature of Free IPTV streams. It is also a good reason to subscribe to a paid streaming service as these tend to be 1000% more reliable. The good news is, it typically does not happen all that often but it can happen and is frustrating when it does.
Having an app where you can add your own m3u channels is very handy. At the end of the article, we will show you how to search for your own M3U links and some popular places online to find current, and often updated IPTV HD channels lists.

Premium IPTV Providers
IPTV List Providers While free is nice, public IPTV lists do have certain limitations. Their servers are often hammered with many free users and the streams are often very poor SD picture quality. To watch the best streams in HD with minimal downtime you may need to sign-up with a premium IPTV list provider. They will send you an updated URL to their list with channels on private servers with less users and better uptime. Prices can cost anywhere from $6 to $12 a month depending on which site you go with. To find these providers just search Google for: BEST PAID IPTV Lists.
Look for companies that will give you a free 24/hr test so you can check out their service. The better ones have many of their IPTV channels in HD.
MachTV Plus Premium IPTV Provider Some of you may already be familiar with the MachTV Plus private Roku channel. Their channel is based on IPTV streams and has much of the same content as on a Paid IPTV list. Learn more about MachTV for Roku here.
Disclaimer: Some premium IPTV providers provide content from pirated sources and could go down at any time. Your payment could be lost with no refund should the server ever go down. Something to think about before paying several years in advance. Hunting IPTV links can be fun, but for the best most reliable streaming experience and to support the entertainment industry, we also highly reccomend subscribing to a legal streaming TV service like Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu and use an Over the Air Antenna to watch 100% Free Live HD TV.
