You will first need to obtain and add link to a current M3U playlist. This channel will do nothing without one.

STEP 1. Add the Public Roku IPTV m3u Player PlayList channel above.

STEP 2. Use our custom M3U search engine that can always be found on our News Page (It's near the bottom of the page under IPTV SEARCH).  Or use it below to search for current M3U playlists from popular sites.

TIP: Try using the search terms "m3u" or "USA+IPTV" or "Premium m3u" without the Quotes to find some good HD playlists.

M3U URLS look like this:


An M3U Playlist can contain many of these links and each will show up as a separate channel from within your IPTV app. If you find a direct hosted M3U Playlist and you don't plan on editing the playlist, skip to STEP 8. Some lists may require a login and password so be sure to copy and include this as well.

How To Find New M3U Playlists on Pastebin 

Pastebin is also a good source for finding new and current M3U Playlists for your Roku, Apple TV or Android media streamer. Once you search for a m3u be sure to set the search filter to sort by date as shown below to get the most recent results.

Use the following Pastebin searches to help you find the best results. Here is a sample Big Buck Bunny open source m3u link that you can try in VLC or in your Playlist Player which is a shortened version https://tinyurl.com/bom78bt


STEP 3. From any of the IPTV SEARCH results either on our News Page Search Engine or on Pastebin, click IPTV links that looks interesting. This will open up a page with a list of M3U URLS. Copy and paste the listed URLS as shown above into a text file. Your list can combine several different URL lists if you like. Just make sure to put each URL on a separate line. Save your text file as any name but be sure to end it with the extension m3u. For Example: myplaylist.m3u

STEP 4. Because typing individual M3U links into the IPTV Playlist Player is tedious on your Roku open up VLC. If you don't have it installed download VLC here. You can also use this really nice tool from Roku to test individual files to see if they will play on your Roku. Get the Stream Tester Tool

STEP 5. Open VLC and import myplaylist.m3u file you saved by dragging it into the window. This will open up a list of channels from your URL list. Click on each one to make sure they work. You can edit your list by right clicking and deleting any links that do not work. When you are happy with your list click File\Save Playlist. This will save your changes and give you an updated m3u file. Now you can link to it from your computer, NAS, or you can even upload it to your favorite file storage site like Google Drive. If you want to share it publicly, you can upload it to Pastebin. Pastebin is also a nice place to find public uploaded M3U lists as well.

Step 6. To share it from Google Drive, find your playlist.m3u file you uploaded then right click on it and Get Shareable Link. Then make sure you copy the entire link shown.

Step 7. Open up Google Drive Direct Link Generator. If you don't do this step, your file will not be playable from Roku directly. Paste the link you copied in Step 6 from Google Drive. Into the top box then click the button Create Direct Link. Your new direct link will be in the bottom box below. If you want to save yourself a ton of typing, shorten this URL with a link shortener like TinyURL Shortener.

Step 8. Type the direct link from Step 7 into the IPTV Playlist Player channel on your Roku by selecting the New Playlist button at the bottom right of the screen. This will open up the keyboard where you will need to type in the entire URL. Once you have saved your Playlist. You should be able to play everything on your Roku directly that was on your M3U playlist.

If the filed doesn't play, once you add the link to your IPTV Playlist Player on your Roku. Try leaving the channel and go back into it and this will refresh the channel and your m3u playlist should then begin playing.

Also, don't waste your time with lists ending in .ts these won't work on Roku. The lists you want should end in m3u, or m3u8.
