In this tutorial, I will show you how to install Smart IPTV on FireStick, Fire TV, FireStick 4K, Fire TV Cube, Android TV Boxes, Smart Android TV, and Android Mobiles.
Smart IPTV is an IPTV service that lets you access your IPTV subscriptions from multiple IPTV service providers. You can say that it is an IPTV management service for the end-users.
The most important thing to note about Smart IPTV is that it does not offer any channels or playlists of its own. It lets you stream channels that you have access to from other IPTV subscriptions. The biggest benefit of this app is that you can access channels from multiple IPTV subscriptions in one place. This eliminates the need to install multiple apps for multiple IPTV services.
You need to import the channel playlists from your IPTV subscriptions either using an EPG URL, M3U URL, or a playlist file saved in your local storage.
Smart IPTV is a paid service. However, there are NO recurring charges. You just need to pay a one-time activation fee of 5.49 EUR or nearly 6.10 USD.
Use the MAC address in your Smart IPTV app to activate Smart IPTV paid service (more about it in the ‘How to use’ section later in the guide).
There is a free 7-day trial as well, which you can explore before buying the paid subscription. You may start the trial with the same MAC address.
Note: Do not forget to activate the paid service before the expiration of the 7-day trial if you want your playlists migrated.
